The Do-it-Yourself LCD TV Repair Solution


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 or LED 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 or fix the power supply module of LCD TVs should become an option for TV owners versus having no choice at all but to bring it in to a repair shop or service center and then get charged a painfully high premium a fix that would otherwise be a simple tweak. 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.

    Crosley C42FHDIB switching inputs, rolling thru inputs?
    Suddenly started changing inputs on its own, about 2x per second. First suspected Remote throwing codes to TV, but removed batteries and it still does it. Checked INPUT/SOURCE button on TV, but it is NOT stuck in.
    Weird problem…
    Any ideas?

    We have 2 1/2 years old Insignia 42″ smart tv. It was rated very highly when we purchased it. For about a month now it’s gotten very dark, like the contrast is turned toward black. Everything else is fine. Is this a common problem and can it be repaired?? We were told to check the dish receiver connection, which seems fine. Even DVD are dark.Thanks anyone.

    It isn’t cracked. Almost seems like we can push it back through if we were able (and gutsy) to open the back of the TV.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated!!! Thank you in advance!
