Auto power off or TV won’t turn on

While watching your favorite shows, does your TV turn off automatically? First, disable the sleep timer from the TV settings menu. You may also just adjust it depending on your preference.

If the TV won’t turn on, the power cord might be loosely plugged in. You may also try plugging it into another socket. In some cases, there may be issues with your software or the TV’s internal components. For major issues like these, contact a TV technician for assistance.

Smart TV lines or dead pixels

Did you accidentally bump your smart TV? That’s one possible cause of dead pixels or broken LCD screen. if it’s a new unit, that may be a manufacturing defect also. In the same way, if it’s already old, it may be a sign of wear and tear.

No sound

This seems funny, but sometimes, the TV might be just on mute! Use your remote to turn up the volume. If you’re using an external speaker, check if it’s connected via Bluetooth/Wi-Fi or if it is securely plugged in.

No display

You may also try checking your TV’s display settings. The brightness may be too dim, and your room is brightly lit. That’s why the screen is less vibrant. You may read our blog to learn How to Adjust Your Flat Screen TV Settings for Better Quality.
