You’ve just bought a new LED TV that cost you pretty high. How long you want to make sure that your new TV on which you just spent hundreds of dollars will be going to last? Of course, all of us wish our investment lasts as long as possible. But how will that be possible? As with all your things, new LED also fades with age. According to manufacturers, the average life of an LED TV varies between 40,000 and 100,000 hours (approx four and ten years) depending on usage and maintenance. However, lack of proper care can reduce the lifespan of your TV.
Another thing a homeowner can do to ensure the longevity of their LED TV is to install a voltage regulator –that protects appliances from frequent voltage fluctuations. Installing a voltage regulator can help protect your LED display and other home appliances too.
At lower backlight settings, your LED TV can last over 10 years (100,000 hours, or above). Moreover, you can also follow other simple steps to increase the life of your new investment.
Let’s discuss below:
Dos and Don’ts of Using a TV
- DON’Tleave your TV on when you’re away or not watching. Take care of the battery– the heart of your LED.
- DON’T set it up close to the window; the sun rays are harmful for its components.
- Don’t set it on the floor; the dust is bad for TV.
- DON’Tleave it in standby mode
- DON’Tset it up near your kitchen or wood stove, as the ash and heat will reduce its lifespan.
- DOswitch it off after watching for long hours.
- DOmount it against the wall.
- DOmake sure your LED TV is well ventilated.
- DO unplug it too when nobody’s watching TV, to save on your energy bill.
- DOadjust contrast levels. The power usage of the TV depends on its contrast level, and high contrast decreases the TV’s longevity. Keep it to ‘standard’.
- DOadjust the brightness level to the lowest. There’s no need to keep it high until it becomes unwatchable. ‘Film’ settings work great, or you could adjust it according to the light of your room by selecting either ‘medium or darkroom.’
- DOuse a voltage regulator in case of power dips. This prevents your TV power caps from going BAM!
Why Is Ventilation Important For LED TV?
LED is designed with openings and slots for necessary ventilation because they often overheat, and this is the major reason your TV fails to last long. So you need to protect it from overheating-openings must never be covered or blocked. Moreover, to ensure reliable operation, the rear of the LED should be placed 2 to 6 inches away from the wall to get enough of ventilation space. LEDs ventilation system is placed behind the screen, so consider setting it away from the wall.

Researchers, who had previously researched about how to improve the life and functions of the TV, began to observe the things outside the box closely.

You can use your LED transparent screen to display news, pictures, or weather forecasts. Moreover, users can make it seamlessly blend with the background. Are you ready to redefine the black screen with Samsung ‘Ambient mode’?
