    Sorry guys but this is a bit a 'fussy' question.....

    I bought a Samsung 32" R88 for the flat i'm moving into soon so last night i decided put the TV back in its box and leave it until i move in.

    It was quite tricky taking the stand off and getting the TV back into the polystyrere. I managed to get it back in the box eventually without dropping it.... BUT........... when i was holding the TV trying to turn it around (almost upside down but not totally) I heard a noise as if something moved inside!!
    Its hard to describe the noise but i can only liken it to this: Imagine if you had a glass cup with something metal inside it. The metal object inside was almost a perfect fit, but there was still a millimeter space around it. If you moved the glass from say left to right you would hear a slight clunk where the metal object inside has moved and knocked against the side of the glass.
    WELL THIS IS WHAT I HEARD!!!!!

    I know this is a long shot but has anybody else experienced this???

    And also, how safe would you lot say it is to turn a TV almost upside down??? Could it do damage???

    You can turn it whichever way you want, don't worry about that, mine was delivered "upside down"
    As for the noise you heard I don't know:confused:

    I just brought a sony 32v4000 and was taking it up some stairs at angle and heard a cluncking noise come from inside the tv. :eek:Then I turned it back the opposite way and it made the same noise like someting isnt quite tight. Should I be concerned or do all sony lcds make this noise when turn on a angle.

    Hi Guys

    I'm only guessing, but what you are hearing is possibly a cable or ribbon cable slightly moving position inside the TV as you change the angle.
