Many consumer electronics have become incredibly reliable, especially when compared to devices from olden days. But one must bear in mind that electronics aren’t immortal, and especially your TV that may even be susceptible to special problems during the summer months— more issues are reported on televisions in July than any other month, and June and August follow right behind. Present day TVs get dimmer as they get older, measured in how many hours they’ve been used. What we are talking here is about brightness. The generally accepted method for measuring lifespan is the number of hours of use until the TV is half as bright as it was when new (“half brightness”). The TV is still watchable, it’s just not as bright. Nearly all new TVs are very bright, so they’ll largely be watchable at the end of their “lifespan” ratings, assuming no other issues. Bear in mind these following tips to ensure that your TV and you are happily ever after 🙂

  • Use stabilizing devices : Electrical surges affect TV’s negatively. Try to protect your high end TV with a high-quality surge protection device. Well, it’s not just rainy season & thunderstorms  that create surges. When your refrigerator or clothes dryer starts, these energy guzzlers can send a surge through the rest of your electrical distribution system. Even if a single small surge doesn’t blow out your device, small power surges can add up to real damage over time.
  • Follow manufacturer’s instructions to clean and dust your TV regularly.  Doing this will keep vents dust-free but avoid static electricity.  We have come across cases where television monitors have been ruined by well-intentioned educated people who spray a liquid on the TV monitors to clean the screen. The liquid can seep into the mechanism creating black streaks, or worse yet, burning out the entire screen. So it is advised never to spray glass cleaner or any liquid directly on to the television monitors.  You can use an anti-static cloth and cleaning solution to keep the surface looking sharp.
  • Store and use your TV in a place where humidity and temperatures are steady : If you’re inside a climate-controlled house, you’re in good company. If you have an outdoor TV or directly facing the sun or don’t use your air conditioning, the changes in temperature and moisture will likely shorten your TV’s lifespan significantly.
