First put a flatenned moving box to cover the screen and then put a blanket on the screen and then tape it up. This would help with the scratches. Get two long flat ropes than can slide under the tv (side to side) and the tie the ends together, get a helper and then both you and the helper put the ropes behind your neck while lifting and also supporting with your hands. This is how professional movers do it. Once its in a truck, put the flat side facing the truck wall and tie it up.

To transport a loewe spheros 42 plasma unit with rotating stand does the tv unit detach from the stand? I understand that the plasma tv should be transported in an upright position only is this true?

Yes, it should be transported in upright position.
When we moved, our moving company arranged a crating company to crate our Spheros unit. They built a crate around the TV and secured it in an upright position along with the rotating stand. They then put a tilt sensor (you get the serial number of the tilt sensor) to make sure that the moving people don't tilt the crate. They also un-crate it at your destination. The only problem is that the TV is already quite heavy to begin with (~180 lbs), and with the crate, it becomes almost impossible for the movers move it in perfect upright position....though our movers really tried hard.

The best way to transport the TV is standing up with the front secured to a 'side' of vechile. If you don't have that choice lay the TV down on it's face. With both make sure you have plenty of moving blankets.The side would be my last resort because of stability. DO NOT LAY ON BACK!!!!

Good Move, big IRISH.

Need to secure for moving

You should have some bolts that came with the machine. They are fitted into the rear casing and screw into the drum to hold it steady. If you dont have the bolts then you can try packing some towels around the outside of the drum ( from underneath ) to hold it steady.

Need to move treadmill downstairs and can't fold and secure it

Typacally heavy movers will use pallet wrap, which is industrial size and strength plastic wrap, this is available where ever moving supplies are available. (UHaul, Truck Rentals, or storage facilities.), fold up the machine and wrap it well with the wrap. This will also protect the machine, and the walls as it should prevent paint transfer on those slight OOPs.

Hope this is of some help.

I do not have a color picture

If you had a color picture before moving the TV, then you should check the inputs. Make sure all the cabling is properly and securely attached.
If this does not help, please provide more information, such as a description of the TV, indicate whether the TV had a color picture immediately before moving it, and whether you have reason to think that there is a mode for black&white.
