The box is held together with palette straps and tabs at the bottom. I believe the tabs were in the handles or they were the handles themselves.
Once the straps are cut, just pull the tabs out and slide the outside of the box off.
There will be Styrofoam inserts in the top of the box and this is also where the remote and power cord are stored so you'll want to take those out.
The TV is wrapped in a Styrofoam cover which is easily removed.
Once that's off, check the TV glass and if you can't see any damage, plug it in and turn it on. You don't need a source to check it out as the menu will come up right away.
You don't even need to take it out of the bottom of the box or set up the stand. If there's any visible damage whatsoever, just refuse it and have the delivery guys box it back up and take it away.
