Just got a new DLP trying to put it in a friends house. Door way is a little smaller than he thought. Is there a way I can take off the rear cabinet to just reduce the size or even the front screen?

rear cabinet = no

front screen, you can take it off but it isn't very thick - probably gain maybe 1/2" or so.

Maybe stand it on it's side to get it in. JUST BE CAREFUL the back of the tv is one big mirror and $$$$.

The TV is only 18 inches deep. What kind of door are you trying to get through?

I did not know that you could stand it on it's side. There's no issues with doing that? the doorway is wide enough it's just the angle at which we need to get it through is tough.

Just be careful with it. The back of the tv is one BIG mirror just inside the plastic. And the front screen is not real strong.

Maybe get a moving dolly from harbor freight and set it on it gently on it's side and wheel it in the room - if uncarpeted.
That way you aren't holding it.

They really aren't "that" fragile but you can break them.

With two people you should be able to turn it on it's side to get through the door. Just be careful and try to just turn it slowly.

Is it still in the box?? If so, removing the box will gain space, or in the box will add support for turning it.

Ok so we were able to turn it on it's side onto a few blankets. Got it moved in and everything turned on ok and picture still seems good as well. Thank you all very much for your help I really appreciate it.
