Televisions are an essential part of every household now. Flat-screen TVs have become quite popular in the last decade. These televisions are preferred for their use of upgraded display technology and compactness of size. They require a lot less space in your house.
Although flat-screen TVs use advanced technology and come with many sharp features, yet they are not fully free from technical issues.
If you own a flat-screen TV, then you surely must have come across some issues over time. There are some technical issues that occur quite frequently in flat-screen TVs.
You can simply solve these issues at home on your own. You won’t need to contact any certified technicians to solve them.
In this article, we will discuss some commonly occurring problems and how to resolve them without professional help.
What are the Common Flat-screen TV issues and How you can Troubleshoot Them?
Most technical issues occur in flat-screen TVs either due to some accidental damage or due to some changes made in the TV settings unknowingly. These technical issues are listed below.
We have also provided some troubleshooting tips following which you can resolve the issues by yourself.
No Picture on the Screen
Sometimes, it might happen that you turn on your TV and all you can see is a blank screen in front of your face. It’s very natural for you to panic.
However, you don’t need to panic because your TV is not totally ruined. This is a common display issue with flat-screen TVs.
You can check if the problem is with the video source or not. Press the ‘Menu’ button to verify. If the TV menu appears, then the problem is with either the TV or its video source.
Now, press the ‘Source’ button on the TV remote and match the TV with the same source as that of the video input.
You can also check if all the relevant cable connections are properly attached and connected.
Video is Unavailable but Audio is On
It might happen that you are able to hear the sound from your TV but you are not getting any picture to see on the screen. If this is the case, then this issue can be solved in the following ways.
The first thing that you should do is to check whether all the relevant devices are connected properly. Also, you need to check the connectivity by using new cables.
Connect all the devices of your TV system with new cables and check if the problem still persists.
Once you have connected the devices with fresh cables press the ‘Menu’ button on your remote. If a Menu appears, then there is some serious problem with the display of your TV which needs professional repairing. For that, you can get in touch with the professionals at TV Repair Dubai.
Issues with Power
You might often notice that your flat-screen TV turns off and then turned on all by itself. This is often termed as ‘Power Cycling’. This issue is an indication that there are some problems with the capacitors of your TV.
You need to reset your TV if this problem arises. First, unplug the TV from its power source and then press the ‘Power’ button.
Keep it on hold for at least 15 seconds. After this, plug the TV back to the power source. Now, turn on the TV.
In case the problem persists, you might need to approach a professional for TV Repair.
Horizontal Lines on the Screen
At times, you may observe horizontal lines appearing on your TV screen when you turn it on. This might happen mostly due to the low signal strength of the set-top box that is connected to your TV.
If you connect the set-top box with any other older television set, then the problem won’t persist. This is due to the fact that old televisions use low strength input. Whereas, flat-screen TVs use higher input.
To solve this issue, you need to connect your flat-screen TV to an HD set-top cable box.
Flat-screen Not Connecting With Wi-Fi
Most Flat-screen TVs come with a host of advanced features. One of these features is Wi-fi connectivity. Modern-day flatscreen TVs can be connected to Wi-fi through a router and then used to surf the internet.
Sometimes, your TV might be unable to connect itself with the Wi-fi. This issue can be solved quite easily.
To make sure whether the problem lies with the TV or the router, you need to connect the TV with a mobile device. If it connects smoothly, then the problem is with your router.
You can try updating the firmware of the router or even give it a factory reset. Another possible way to solve this issue is to use a Wi-fi extender or a USB Wi-fi Adapter.
In conclusion, flat-screen TVs are expensive and advanced appliances that are made of many sophisticated components. Some issues with these TVs can be easily fixed at home.
