Can a 42" LED TV be transported on its back for 700 miles?

by Manage My Life Last activity date:

I am moving a 42" LED TV 700 miles in a Honda Accord. I want to know if I can lay the TV on its back or should I move it standing upright.

The reason they gave for not transporting plasma panels on their front when they first came out is because the weight of the boards on the back of the panel would crack the display. LCD technology is different but you could still be putting pressure along the edges of the front glass from its own weight. I went to a manufacturer that has a LED LCD TV line and they say to not lay it flat or on its sides when transporting.

I recommend you transport it standing upright and taking precautions to not let anything hit the screen.
