The service life of the TV
This parameter depends on the conditions in which operated the TV, and display technologies and the formation of the image on the screen. LCD, plasma and LED televisions are in the range from 50 to 100 thousand hours. The stated term of much more models that are in the lights are LEDs compared to standard lamps.
Often, the manufacturers themselves understand by the term service is not quite what is meant by the consumer. A specified number of hours may pass and the TV will continue to show as the real life from the other. Service life - the brightness and image quality in the first place. And, calling the hours of life, mean only that then the brightness of the image will be two times less. The TV will still work, but the image is not so bright as immediately after purchase. To modern models, supply of brightness is given is much more than to the televisions of the last century. So often the warranty period passes and if no damage of a different kind doesn't happen, the TV continues to broadcast.
The fact that the image in the TV over time becomes less bright, natural. The backlight LCD TV is the threshold of normal wear and tear, and plasma TVs decreases as phosphors.
Most modern manufacturers put the lifespan for LCD TVs about 100 thousand hours. This is due to the fact that currently LEDs are used, which are resistant to fading. Those models, which are used in fluorescent lamps, without any loss of quality so long will not serve. For them, the real term normal operation will be from 40 to 60 hours, in some cases, particularly careful handling - a little more.
How to prolong service life
How long until a breakdown occurs the time - a matter of individual use. Will shorten the life of a misconfiguration, such as excessive saturation and brightness. The correct settings are usually specified in the instruction manual of the equipment. Specifically to understate the performance of brightness and saturation to prolong life is not worth it. Preferably all of the settings set within the permissible limits. In this case the image colors are nice and natural, and the image - quality and less harmful to the eyes.
