Bottom line

Well... right side up ,,, upside down ,,, lay flat,, or dragged behind the car, if treated rough you will damage this delicate instrument.The fact is they were meant to be transported in the up rite position.When they first came out, there were little liquid filled tilt meters on the boxes so you would know if they were ever layed down. We at our dist. center had to refuse any that had the tilt meter empty. We are still told to refuse any flat t v that is laying down. they are expensive so better to be safe.We were told it had to do with the panel coming disconnected or loose.
