How To Repair Televisions
Although many people believe that knowing how to repair televisions is a specialized skill, many common problems you may encounter can be easily fixed at home. To repair televisions, you need to have patience and the ability to diagnose the problem.
Things You Will Need:
- Coaxial Cable
- Magnetic Coil
- To repair televisions, you need to first diagnose the problem. Ideally, you should eliminate various problems as you troubleshoot. If you notice the television has a fuzzy screen that alternates between clear and fuzzy, you may have a problem with your coaxial cable. If the television powers on and off randomly, you may be looking at a problem with the power cord.
- To repair televisions that have a fuzzy or snowy looking screen, you may need to replace the coaxial cable. Replacing the coaxial cable is easy and fairly inexpensive. You can pick up an extra coaxial cable at any electronics store and most discount stores. Simply unscrew the coaxial cable that is currently connected to your television and replace it with the new cable. This should clear up the screen issues you were experiencing.
- If you notice your television has blotches of color on the screen, you may need to demagnetize it. To demagnetize the television, you need to purchase a magnetic coil. Magnetic coils can be found either online or at most hardware store. Use the magnetic coil to make circles around the TV starting a few inches from the edge. Continue to make circles with the magnetic coil as you back away from the television. You may have to do this several times to successfully repair the television by demagnetizing it.
Repairing televisions is not as complicated as you would think. Be patient and you can soon be back to staring open-mouthed at your boob tube.
