The liquid crystal display (LCD) has come a long way from its Japanese digital watch beginnings. Today you’ll find LCDs everywhere and one area that it has experienced exponential growth in is in the entertainment devices industry, particularly, the LCD television segment.
If you bought one yourself and are looking and are reading this post then I’m guessing things may have turned ugly for you and your LCD TV and that perhaps you’re looking for some repair information. If you’re still within the warranty period then you may stop reading and just bring it to the manufacturer’s service center and have it fixed for free. Otherwise, please read on.
In my opinion, being able to do simple things like replacing the busted backlights of the LCD by yourself should become an option for everyone as opposed to having no choice but to bring it to the brand’s service centers just to get charged a painfully high premium for a relatively easy repair job. Learning how to repair your TV yourself can be a great exercise for you because it can save you a lot of money and perhaps even let you earn extra cash by doing the same service for others.
The foothold of the bulky cathode ray tube (CRT) TV in the market has been steadily declining with reports of LCD TV’s surpassing the CRT in terms of revenue year after year. Demand is expected to double from 93.4 million units this year to 193.9 million units by 2012. Add that to the millions of units already in people’s homes that have approximately doubled every year over a period of 3-4 years and you can imagine the staggering number of these devices out there that are out of their warranty periods. Chances are, you already have neighbors and friends who own this ubiquitous appliance. Wouldn’t it be a neat idea to earn a little extra by offering them your repair skills when their units start to conk out on them?
