Some Hisense LCD TV problems do not happen for many years. However, they can occur within the first year or two while you are operating the TV. Some of the common issues that may arise include issues with the display and controls. When this happens, some instances will require replacing the television. Others on the other hand can be repaired via a reset troubleshooting process.
When these issues come up, there are a number of things you can do. Here they are:
Check Your Warranty
Checking your warranty might be a good place to start. You may want to check your warranty before you attempt any repairs. This is because in most cases, an attempt to make a physical repair may void the warranty. Now, the terms of your warranty varies based on the point of purchase. You may have a manufacturer’s warranty only. However some retailers also offer a separate policy which you can purchase along with the TV set. In a situation where you purchased the upgraded warranty and the television experiences problems while under warranty, you can take advantage of the retailer’s service. The warranty may either repair or replace the television set. However, minimal information is available about warranties under the numerous Hisense TV reviews. This is because the warranty stems from the retailer.
When you buy the television set in person, you can always ask about the warranty options. The sales representatives should have documentation about all your available options. If you are purchasing online, you have to carry out thorough research. This is because no apps are available to actually explain each warranty. The checkout process most times include options, but they are easy to pass over when viewing the additional cost.
Screen Display Issues
Hisense LCD faces some common problems which happens with nearly every LCD TV brand. The display is a physical element and much like the screen on your phone, tablet or computer. Thus simply resetting or running a troubleshooting process cannot fix the physical damage. To identify screen display issues, you can take a closer look at the display. Cracks and discoloration with a focal point indicates damage from an impact. When this happens, the screen cannot recover and would require replacement.
This problem can happen on any television. Take precautions always as you handle the TV and do it with care as you move it around. Cover the screen with a soft blanket and use padding to prevent damage of this nature. Discoloration is a typical screen problem. This is where the blue and green colors are symptomatic of a screen with limited remaining life. At this point, turning off the television and allowing the screen to rest may function as a temporary solution. However the problem tends to recur and get worse over time. If you are facing intermittent display problems and the television is under warranty don’t wait to pursue service or replacement.
Hisense TV Troubleshooting
To troubleshoot a Hisense TV that is not turning on or experiencing glitch issues requires a power cycle reset and potential factory settings reset. The power cycle can come in handy in resolving a number of simple problems which is attributed to the short-term memory of the TV. When it comes to solving issues with conflicting apps and other aftermarket additions that create problems with the television, resetting to the original factory setting can solve these issues.
To power-cycle the TV:
- Turn off the power and unplug the TV from the wall outlet.
- Unplug your cable box also to remove all connected power from the entire system.
- Hold on for a few minutes while the residual power drains from the television.
- Plugin the power again and turn on the television to test for repeat problems.
- If the problems persist, you can run a factory reset.
- Simply access the main menu from your remote control
- Proceed to the ‘Settings’ menu.
- Navigate through this menu to locate the ‘Return to factory settings’ option and reset the TV.
- Understand that you lose any customized settings and apps via this process. However a factory reset can solve many fickle issues with the television set.
