It is a serious question. You stated that others should check the display upon delivery with a flash light while the truck driver watches. I am curious how this is done if you are the only one around to greet the driver and accept delivery. I guess you answered the question; your buddy hangs around with you to meet the truck driver and helps you unbox the display to inspect it.
To check the display you just need to remove the 4 plastic side handles and lift the box. Just remove the center of the plastic and the outer part will fall out. Then just lift the top of the box. Now the tv is sitting in the packing foam and you can get to the power cord. Have an SD card or an HDMI cable ready with a source or just power it on and you can see if it works. Then get some help to lift it out of the box. Maybe you can give the driver a twenty and he can help.
