Another good to know is to not fully pack it since they need to inspect the tv before taking. I will just be sure to maybe take of the stand and have it ready to be packed but also leave it in a spot where it can be plugged in and turned on.
This was perfect information bro ... thanks so much.
I feel even better about buying from Amazon now.
Before pickup, its best to mostly have it all packed up including all the accessories and stand parts.
I took digital camera photos when I first received the TV from amazon before completely unpacking it to know how to put it all back in the box if needed.
To inspect the TV, it was in the lower part of the box in the bottom styrofoam pieces and could plug it in and test it right there. The panel itself would stand up in the bottom of the box, but I leaned it against a couch in the living room to be safe leaving room to plug in the power cord in the back.
After that, we only had to put the clear plastic cover over the screen and the top styrofoam pieces and lower the top part of the box over it, then close up the box with four plastic pieces near the bottom on both front and back sides.
Only took a couple minutes if it was prepared in advance.
You don't need to use the remote to check it either like that, there is a power button, volume and channel buttons on the lower back side of the panel too.
Beforehand I also used the setup option to reset all settings to factory default which I recommend, puts it back in initial setup mode like brand new.
