By Nathan Brown T Subscribe to RSS | May 28th 2012 | Views:

You may not want to become a professional television repairman, but when you understand television sets, their functioning and repairing you will be a little better off. That means you will have no trouble installing it or trouble shooting the occasional hiccups. Televisions may seem to be very safe equipments for many of us. And you may have even imagined that repairing them is just as easy as well. The CRT television apart, the newer technology driven televisions like LED, LCD, Plasma and 3D don’t have many parts that can be serviced at home. If you had ever looked into the interior of modern television sets you will also seen that there are hardly any wire or cable running inside. Most parts are just plug in just like the Time Warner TV service.

However you may have to once in a while troubleshoot your television and you may even want to open the back cover and look for some trouble spots, or you may even be doing it simply out of curiosity. Either ways you will have to take some precautions. The single biggest reasons why precaution is a must is the dangerous voltages that build inside televisions. Voltages can be as high as 11 KV. That is approximately 9-10 times the voltage in your home socket. The standard tools you use in home are not enough to open and service televisions. Using in appropriate tools can damage modern televisions irreparably. When you have all the tools and manuals, and you have decided to try your hand at television repairing, take the following precautions; in your own interest and of course in the televisions’ interest too.

Before you delve into opening the television make sure you have the following tools. You can buy them or borrow one if you don’t intend to use them very often. Nevertheless they are important, so keep them handy.

a.Video Microscope: Television components are miniatures, so examining them with your naked eyes can be extremely difficult. By using a video microscope you will save the trouble of straining your eyes. It will help you detect faults much faster.

b.Solder equipment: The most frequent faults in televisions are snapped electrical joints. They are mostly incapable of being twisted together as a repair option. The only way you can put them back in order is to solder them using lead or similar metal combination. That is the reason why soldering equipment is a necessity.

c.Screw Driver Set: There can be nothing more important than having a good set of screw drivers and spanners. In fact you will be using it as the first tool. There are different varieties to it and are not really very expensive.

d.A test patter generator: It is generally expensive to buy one unless you plan to become a professional television repair specialist. However you can borrow one for a couple of days from a repair shop. They will let you tell what has wrong with the image projection system of the television.

e.Then there are the measuring devices like voltmeter, ampere meter, or a combination of the two called multi meter. They help you establish the working of the different components and check if they are in order. Voltages are major issues in televisions and that where these instruments help you make an accurate diagnose.

Operating manuals are integral part televisions and they are unique to brands and models. They are must and if you don’t have a hard copy, download the manual from the manufacturer’s website. Having the manual by your side will help you identify the components accurately. When ordering for replacements you will have to quote their part number.
