LCD is Broken? Here’s How to Handle Your TV
Usually, minor TV issues like cracks are tolerable. Your TV is still functional even with small LCD problems. Additionally, below are our recommendations if your TV’s LCD is broken:
- Assess the problem. Please turn off the TV first, and then unplug it from the outlet. Check if the damage is minor, or if it is severe with broken parts.
- Document the damage. Grab your phone and take photos of the broken LCD. These will be helpful when the technician asks for details.
- Check for warranty coverage. If your TV is only a few months old, it may still be under warranty. Check the warranty card, and then read the terms. Contact the manufacturer or retailer to inquire about TV repair.
- Call your trusted TV technician. If the TV is out of warranty, we highly recommend booking professional TV repair services instead. Do this immediately if you must use your TV to save time and avoid further damage.
