Question and Answers

Q:

Why does my TV not come on?

A:

There are circuits in the TV designed to shut it down if it sees something that is not right. It is difficult to tell you what’s causing this shutdown but there are a few common causes that might make this economical to repair as oppose to throwing out. Get some quotes from repair shops to have someone come out or you take it in so they can give you an idea at what you are looking at.

Q:

Why is a LED TV better than a LCD TV?

A:

The new LED TVs are called that because they use LEDs to light the panel instead of fluorescent tubes. This helps on power consumption and can either be thinner or have a better contrast ratio.

If the LEDs are arranged around the edge then the the panel assembly is much thinner and really cuts out a lot of the TVs depth and weight. The light source that the LCD panel is using comes from the sides but is diffused enough to where the entire screen is evenly lit. This is better than the normal fluorescent tube backlit LCD TVs because of size and power consumption.

If the TV is backlit by LEDs then they can also be turned down in clusters. This is done because LCDs have a lower contrast ratio then other technologies because the panel cannot block out the light passing through black entirely. By turning off the light where black should be you get a much better difference between blacks and whites which is what contrast is.

The name is misleading but it is actually an LCD TV with the name referring to the way it is being lit. The reasons they are better are the features they can offer like thinner models or better contrast ratio.

Q:

Why is there background noise on my Panasonic TV when watching TNT?

A:

It is difficult to tell what causes these interferences. Off the bat I’m inclined to blame your cable company since it only affects one channel. I know you said that it only happens at that TV but its apples and oranges trying to compare how TVs react to signals. If you can give me some more information it might help. The model will tell me what kind of TV it is and what it has in it. Having the model number also helps search forums for people with the same issue. Also who is your provider and how do you have it hooked up. These kinds are problems are usually found on direct in cable where you don’t have a box.
