Can't Watch Your Favorite Shows? 5 Signs You Need TV Repair, West Chester, Ohio

Televisions are a part of everyday life for many people. But whether you are interested in watching the news, sports, or your favorite soap opera, you need a clear picture and sound to do so. If your system is exhibiting any of the following signs, it might be time to call a TV repair professional to get your set back in working order.

5 Common TV Repairs

1. No Power

If your television doesn’t have power, it could be something simple, such as an unplugged cable in the back of the unit or a plug that isn’t pushed all the way into the wall. If everything is plugged in properly, it could be a problem with a fuse in the television, which will require professional attention.

2. No Sound

One of the internal connections in your television may also be loose, causing the sound to malfunction. With some televisions, you can blow the speakers out by turning the volume up too loud.

3. Vertical Line

A vertical line on your television often stems from a poor signal. Check the wiring to ensure you have a nice, tight connection. If that doesn’t fix the problem, you might have a bad circuit in the television.

4. Horizontal Line

If there is a horizontal line that flickers, it often signals an internal problem with the TV, such as a faulty circuit board or panel. When the line moves from top to bottom, there is likely an issue with one of your input connections.

5. Black Screen

If you have a black screen but still hear sound, something is wrong with the main processor. This is a result of too much moisture, which causes the circuits to short out, or a backlight failure.
