How long should an LED TV last?
Even though the typical lifespan of a LED TV is around 80,000 hours, in reality it should last much more, as long as no other technical issues come up. Let’s say about 6-7 years in very good shape.
How do you know when your TV is going bad?
If the colours on your screen appear distorted, then your TV might be malfunctioning. Phantom colours are also a problem; if there are smears of bright colours in areas that should be completely white, you can be pretty sure that there is a problem.
How often should you replace your TV?
We estimate that today’s household replaces it’s TV set every four to five years. If TVs continue to get bigger, better and significantly cheaper, we estimate that people will replace them more often,” Retrevo spokesperson Jennifer Jacobson wrote in an email.
Is it worth fixing a TV?
On the average flat-screen TV, repair of a cracked screen is one of the highest-cost repairs. Usually, on all but the biggest screens, it is more than the cost of a replacement TV. The screen of a larger TV costs more to replace, but the TVs themselves are higher-priced as well, so it may still work to your advantage.
