Top 3 Reasons You Should Have Your LCD Flat Screen TV Repaired
The popularity of flat screen LCD or plasma TV displays has seen an unprecedented explosion in recent years. This is thanks to the ever increasing number of players and manufacturers in the market which naturally promotes some very healthy competition which in turn brings down prices to very wallet-friendly levels. Owners of these flat screen televisions are forced into a dilemma of sorts whenever their units start to exhibit glitches that may be related to its age or not. Would they prefer to have it repaired or would they simply go for a brand new one since prices are really low anyway?
Below are 3 of the top reasons you should go for the LCD TV repair option when dealing with a malfunctioning unit:
1. Throwing away a damaged flat screen TV may have some environmental aspect to it and if you are not careful in you disposal, may actually have negative effects to mother earth. Repairing instead of buying keeps those televisions away from garbage dumps and the environment where they could inflict some damage. Keep those TVs in your living rooms as long as you can to reduce techno-garbage. If you really have to let it go, have it refurbished and resell it or hand it down to someone else!
2. Having the unit checked by a technician will tell you what’s wrong with it. In a lot of cases, the problem is just a simple busted capacitor which actually just involves a very simple fix and would cost no more than 20 dollars. Having it repaired professionally could cost you hundreds so one good option is to fix it yourself! You save a lot of money because you do not have to buy a new one and you learn a new skill in the process. Does a career in electronics troubleshooting and repair appeal to you?
3. No matter how you look at it, chances are, having it repaired will still cost lower than buying a new one. Although it may make sense just to buy a shiny new unit that will have better and more advanced features, sometimes, it is still better to save your extra cash and just have your current unit fixed (see reason number 1).
The dilemma on whether to repair or to buy a new one is a burning dilemma that all of us go through not just for televisions. But sometimes, there are indeed compelling reasons not to follow our buying impulses in favor of a more socially and financially-sound choices.
