Tips to Increase the Lifespan of your TV

TV has become one of the world’s most popular home appliances and addictions for people worldwide. It is the crucial mass means of entertainment, news, advertisement and much more. Since the invention of Smart TVs, they have come equipped with internet and many streaming features like Netflix, Hotstar, etc. Over the years, many types of TVs were invented, like Plasma TVs, LCD TVs, and LED TVs. LED TVs have become the preferred choice as they are long-lasting and more energy-efficient. For binge-watchers, Smart TVs are nothing less than a treasure.

Whether you buy plasma, LCD, LED or a new OLED television, you can likely expect the television to outlast the technology itself. The average lifespan of a TV is 10 years, even if you always leave it on. When you spend a hefty amount for a Smart TV, it is natural that you want it to last long and perform well during its lifespan. LED TVs provide the brightest and most beautiful pictures and are a high-cost investment that no one wants to replace in a few years. In the unfortunate case of a TV breakdown, you can use the OneDios TV repair service team to get it repaired.

Most of us take our TVs for granted. Maintaining a TV will not just save you from expensive last-minute repairs but also help extend the life of your TV. And remember, prevention is better than cure. Well, here are some ways by which you can improve the lifespan of your Smart TV.

  • Ensure adequate ventilation

Overheating is a significant reason why TVs don’t last long. While mounting, take care that there is enough space between the wall and the TV. Also, the TV should be placed in an open space to cool off by itself, increasing your TV’s life span.  Ensure there is adequate airflow within the room. A closed room can build up the heat and invite problems affecting the TV’s functioning and lifespan. If you are facing any issues or the TV keeps heating up, download the OneDios app and put in a request today. It is a one-stop shop for all your TV-related issues and queries. 

  • Switch Off the TV when not in use

Smart TVs can stay on for more extended periods without needing regular replacements. However, if you regularly switch off your TV, it will save power and help extend its lifespan. The Smart TVs components like the motherboard, capacitors, and other parts which get heated up will get some time to rest and cool off. It would be best if you always switched off your TV when not watching it.

Excess or unnecessary unlimited use can cause burn-in, overheating, and reduction in its life span in the long run. Televisions usually come with a 1–2year manufacturer’s warranty, but in cases where TV is constantly ON, it will need to be repaired soon after the manufacturer’s warranty ends. If you are looking forward to buying an Extended Warranty plan for your LED TV or LCD TV, download the OneDios app and put in a request today.

  • Adjust TV brightness

Keeping your TV’s brightness at maximum can harm its life span. High brightness quickly heats the TV, which can affect the screen in the long run. Remember, once the picture begins to dim, the picture quality is affected until it eventually becomes unwatchable. TV screens are designed with settings that can work in very bright and dark rooms and everything in between.

You have to remember more the brightness, the more electricity it consumes. The high brightness level can affect your eyes, so it is better to keep the it at a reasonable level. For any query regarding brightness levels, feel free to call experts at OneDios.

  • Use a voltage regulator.

Voltage fluctuations can harm your TV and cause severe damage to it, affecting the lifespan of your Smart TV. Usually, voltage fluctuates during storms, power cuts or bad weather and voltage spikes can happen anytime. Even minor surges in the power grid can cause significant damage to electronics plugged directly into outlets. So, it is best to use a voltage regulator to manage such fluctuations effectively. If, unfortunately, your TV does get damaged by sudden fluctuation or is not switching on, download the OneDios app and call for a TV service expert.

  • Adjust contrast settings

Contrast settings control the difference between the dark and bright colours of the display. The clear picture quality of Smart TVs is mainly due to high colour contrast, which eventually reduces the lifespan of your TV. When the contrast is high, more energy will be consumed. Set the contrast level to get a good visual experience and low power consumption.

  • Keep the TV and its surroundings clean.

Keeping your Smart TV dust-free can protect it from overheating. Dust can settle on the screen and affect visibility. Never use harsh solutions for cleaning as they can permanently damage the screen, and replacing the TV panel costs nearly half the price of your TV. Use a microfiber cloth for dusting and cleaning your TV sets to avoid scratches.

A dusty environment has a chance to induce a short circuit causing non-recoverable damage to the screen of TV. So, always keep the television in dust-free and clean surroundings. It can also get into the insides of your TV, making it slow and causing harm to the inner components. If you are not comfortable cleaning your TV from the inside, download the OneDios app and call for a TV service expert.

Hoping that the tips mentioned above will help you protect your TV and work efficiently for longer.
