Common repairs for big-screen TVs can include general problems like a poor or nonperforming picture, a lack of sound or no power; or specific problems like stuck or dead pixels. Depending upon the issue, the owners can have repairs done for them or attempt to do it themselves.
Different TV makes and models experience different problems. Best Buy's Geek Squad can repair most common problems, as of 2015. As an alternative to having a professional repair the television problem, Sony TV Repair offers guidance for do-it-yourself options. For example, if the problem is that pixels on the screen are sticking, a possible resolution is to lightly tap the screen in the affected area, either with the fingers or a dull tool. If this does not resolve the problem, then it is wise to bring it to a reputable and professional TV repair person. Another popular brand, Samsung generates common complaints for motion blur, particularly on units with a 60 megahertz, or MHz, speed. This can be avoided by opting for TVs that operate at 120 or 240 MHz, as the image is clearer. While all big-screen TVs can experience some problems and require repair, they remain a popular buying option for consumers.
