Quick Answer

If you are not sure if you or someone else registered your television, reach out to the customer service department for the manufacturer and request to speak to its warranty department. Provide the model number and serial number for the television, which usually appears on the back panel on a special label, as well as your personal identification number. In some cases, used television from a recent line may also be valid for registration.

Registering a new television for a warranty is often helpful because it provides you with additional coverage and protection in the event of a malfunction or other damage out of your control. Most manufacturers include a disclaimer about the presence of any limited warranty, which does not require you to perform additional actions to put into effect but only to keep your proof of purchase if you need to file a claim. Some televisions may include a separate warranty card that asks for information about you, the product and the nature of the purchase. Filling out this card and sending to the manufacturer registers the television.
