TV repair – how to find the right service

If your TV set is broken, you have several options to get it fit again. The causes of the problems can be different and range from a defective chip to a damaged circuit board to a cracked screen. In any case, you should leave the repair to professionals.

TV repair: You have these options

If your television is broken, you should always leave the repair to professionals, since the risk of breaking more than repairing is extremely high as a layman. Compared to buying a new one, a repair is almost always worthwhile in terms of price.

  1. Repairs via specialist retailers: Often, specialist electronics retailers such as Saturn, Media Markt or Euronics offer their own repair service. You can contact them if there is a problem with your TV set – even if the damage is serious.
  2. If the television is still under warranty, you should refrain from repairing it yourself, since opening the device yourself usually voids the remaining warranty. If the warranty period is only just exceeded, some manufacturers may still repair the device as a gesture of goodwill. If the defect is covered by the warranty, you will usually receive a free repair or even a replacement device from the manufacturer or retailer. The warranty is processed either by the retailer from whom you bought the television or by the manufacturer directly.

The warranty conditions can usually be found in the device manual or on the manufacturer’s website. If you have any questions, you can also contact the customer service of the device manufacturer or ask your electronics retailer.
