Can a RPTV be safely tipped up on its side?

    The only way I can get a big screen TV inside and upstairs is to turn it up on one side. Is there going to be a greater potential for internal damage? Anyone have any experience with that? Carrying one of those things up a flight of stairs almost puts it on its end anyway.

    It should be fine. Just make sure that the parts of the set you are lifting it with are well enough supported. Sometimes the top screen part is flimsy, or it comes in two parts and the bottom section is the sturdiest. But if it is sturdy enough to be supported by lifting it on the side, nothing inside should be affected unless things in there are loose or something, which they shouldn't be.

    You may just have to reconverge your CRT's after the move. Otherwise, should be fine.

    People shouldn't give advice unless you know the whole picture. It completely depends on what type of tv it is. Some brands are created using suspended mirrors inside that will break if tipped. You should contact the manufacter of your television and ask them before doing anything.
