Your TV will last as long as you take good care of it. Longevity of television screens can vary with different brands and models. The average lifespan of a CRT screen is around 10 years whereas a plasma TV can last up to 20 years. However, it is a false conception to think that your TV will just die once the time is up.
You can enjoy watching your TV for many years if you don’t put a heavy toll on it every day. Here are some useful tips for making your TV last longer.
Turn the TV off regularly
Many people just turn the TV on and completely forget about turning it off. When a TV is turned on, it continuously consumes electricity and the hours of television usage keeps increasing. Always remember that the hours of TV viewed per day determine the lifespan of a TV. Therefore, turning the TV off when nobody is viewing is the simplest way to increase the longevity of TV.
Adjust brightness and contrast levels
Once you buy a new TV, the first thing you’ve got to do is adjust the TV settings and maintain the brightness to a lowest possible level. Watching TV at high brightness level decreases the longevity of you TV screen to quite an extent. So if you want your TV to last longer, set the brightness level to “medium” or “low”.
Install a voltage regulator
One of the reasons why our TV stops to work even before its lifespan is because of fluctuation of the power supply. Power dips can cause major damages to any electronic appliances in the house. So installing a UPS or a voltage regulator with power backup can help to increase the longevity of your TV.
Ventilate your TV
Our TV consumes a lot a power and generates a lot of heat. It is essential to place your television at a ventilated area of your room. Always make sure that you don’t place your TV too close against the wall. Place your TV at least four inches away from the wall. This allows the ventilation system inside a TV to protect the TV from overheating. , your television will last for considerably longer periods.
