The television that adorns your room is the main source of entertainment for you as well as your family members. Whether young or old, everyone loves to sit glued in front of it and watch their favourite programs during leisure. The television is an appliance that has evolved with time. Initially, it used to be the big fat box with cathode ray tubes and a thick glass screen but not it has turned out to be slimmer with LCD and LED screen that saves up on space and gives a better picture quality. It is lightweight and can easily be hauled up in the wall.
Just as you would take care of any other electronic appliance in your house, the LCD television also requires special attention. Taking good care of the device can let it last long and give you a better experience while watching it. Here are a few tips that can help you take care of your television and keep it functioning the same way for years altogether.
• Keep away from dust and the sun – Whenever you purchase an LCD television, chose a safe place in the room to put the television. Do not place it anywhere near a window where there is the direct entry of sunlight. Keeping it there would attract dust as well as damage the parts due to the constant exposure to heat.
• Place it a few inches away from the wall – if you plan to save space in the room and put up the television on the wall, make sure there is sufficient gap between the television and the wall. This would prevent the heat emitted from the television to get trapped. It would also curb accumulation of moisture from the wall onto the television set.
• Use the right cleaning material – It is always advised that while you plan to clean the appliance, you should firstly clean away the dust on the screen. The next step would be to use a proper cleaning solution meant for LCD screens. Avoid spraying the solution directly on the screen as it tends to absorb moisture and in return damaging the screen permanently. Using a lint free cloth that is non abrasive to perform all such actions helps to prevent the formation of scratches on the screen.
• Handle it with care – LCD televisions are very delicate and require skilful handling. Keep in mind to not handle it in a harsh way. Always remember to switch off electrical connections to the appliance before touching it. As it is delicate, there are chances of you losing grip while cleaning or moving it from one place to the other.
