LED / LCD TV Repair – Is It Worth It?

LED & LCD TV Repair

LED and LCD TV Repair is it worth it? For a lot of people who are using LED or LCD TVs, there is a real fear about breaking. Anyone who has owned an expensive and high quality piece of technology knows that there is a good chance a break means it cannot be repaired. However, this “common” knowledge is actually an assumption that isn’t rooted in much fact. With the right professional, it is possible to get your television working again without any problems. More importantly, you can do so without having to worry whether or not you have to buy a fully new TV!

If your TV panel is still in one piece, meaning a brick hasn’t gone through the screen there is a good chance it can be repaired! A lot of common issues such as power, audio, HDMI can be fixed.

Starting with Diagnostics

The most important part of any LED TV repair is to figure out what is wrong with the product in the first place. Imagine a scenario where your television suddenly stops working and you think it is broken and thus throw it out. In some cases, a LED or LCD TV repair job means looking at the software and seeing whether there is a quick fix.

The process of diagnosing a repair job for the television is going to require a specialist even if you know what you are doing. Sometimes you can use different power switches, cables, and other external devices to see whether you have a faulty problem that you can fix. In some cases, you might find that it is just an old HDMI cable you need to replace!

However, sometimes it is more likely that you need the help of a professional to diagnose the issue. Some places offer a free diagnostic of the LED TV so that you can learn for free what the problem is. Then you can choose to have them fix it or another reputable provider.

LED TV Repair – What’s the Risk?

There are some people who claim to have expertise in a certain field, but actually do not have many credentials. You want to make sure that you find a professional for LED TV repair so that you don’t end up with an even worse television or being wrongly told that you cannot fix it. There is a risk of finding a poor quality LCD TV repair person so make sure that you are able to find someone who knows what they are talking about.

One great way to get excellent LED TV repair is to make sure you call in advance and speak to someone on the phone. You can discuss their credentials or, in some cases, even visit the location to find out whether they have any good knowledge of the subject. Sometimes local cities and organizations will offer awards to companies that show particularly good service and support for these type of electronics.

Next Steps if You Have a Broken TV

If you can’t figure out what is wrong with your television or you just want to get the opinion from an expert, it’s a good idea to start looking for local shops that can help you. Even if you have to travel a bit to find a good quality LCD TV repair person, you’ll welcome it in the end when you are at home with a fixed television that is as good as new.

Follow through with the diagnostic and repair tips we have provided and there is a good chance you will come out with a working television even if you thought you would have to throw it all away and get a new one.

    Running diagnostics on the tv is so important! I had my tv go out on me a few months ago and I thought it was a lost cause. I called a local repair shop and they talked me through a few things to check. Turns out it was just a broken power cable which cost me $15 to replace!

    My TV broke and no longer turn on. Thanks for the advice about how a professional can fix the problem in the software. I’ll have to make sure that I find someone who is certified to work on LCD TVs. Hopefully, the company I find also does warranties so that I can know my computer is protected.

      Sounds like one of your boards is bad. Pricing depends on what is wrong with the TV. We can look at it first to determine which component on the LED or LCD TV is bad and replace specific components or the necessary boards. This also depends on availability of parts for your particular model. Most mainstream models such as Samsung, LG, and Sony have parts available for most of their models. Feel free to call us. We can disassemble the TV, and test each board, then provide an accurate quote for you. Our Great Neck office phone is 516-499-6892. Thanks! Repair Sharks

    When the LCD TV gets old as the year passes, then it starts showing blurred images or your TV screen has wedged pixel, moreover, it might not even show anything sometimes. Facing these problems might lead you to make up your mind to exchange your LCD TV and take a new TV which consists of repairing system of the LCD screen. It is not an easy option to take a new TV when there may be any damage with TV. However purchasing a new LCD TV of the same model which you are currently using would not be same as if you would have bought it a year ago, still visiting a repair shop for LCD Screens is still a very useful option that you may get. It does not cost too much if you choose the option of repair for the LCD Screen.

    My Samsung TV (LED Energy) is about six years old and it appears few block of lines on the top and bottom. Worth to fix it or get a new TV?

    • admin says:

      Hello Lisa, it depends. It could be the panel itself is failing or one of the boards. If the panel is bad it would be recommended to replace the LED TV. If it took any type of shock damage the panel itself may be going bad.

    My TV won’t turn on. It’s a Sony and 1.5 years old. It’ll initially turn on and then off after 30 seconds and the red light blinks 6 times. Won’t turn on again. Is it worth repairing?

    • admin says:

      It could be worth repairing, depends on what’s causing the issue. If its one of the internal boards then yes it is worth repairing, if it is the LCD panel or bad backlights it may not be worth it. Feel free to call us to discuss 516-499-6892 350 Northern Blvd Great Neck, NY. Sincerely, Repair Sharks

    I have a 65″ lcd. My son threw a metal small car and only the color looks like it’s shattered not the screen itself. I moved the TV to another part of my living room and the color shattering got worse. Is it worth fixing or even getting an estimate

    • admin says:

      Not likely worth the cost of repairing unfortunately. If the panel itself has physical damage then the panel itself would need to be replaced. The cost of this type of repair usually outweighs the cost of buying replacement. Sincerely, Repair Sharks

  8. Wendi says:

    I have a large screen lcd television which was hit with a heavy object. There is no damage to the outside structure but when you turn the tv on, the entire left side of the screen is black. Worth trying to repair?

    • admin says:

      Unfortunately it sounds like you damaged the LCD panel itself. This would not generally be worth repairing due to the cost of the panel and service. Sincerely, Repair Sharks

    My 6 yr old Phillips LED believe was damaged during a storm. It was hooked to an older power surge. It clicks like it wants to turn on but just clicks. Would it be worth repairing?
