A couple of years back you would be lucky to get PhP 1k per inch

Our Sony Bravia 32" LED is starting to have display problems. Horizontal lines across the upper part of the screen and now the screen turns purple/green and out of focus (like watching a 3d screen without the glasses) when the set warms up after about 10 seconds from power up.

Got the TV last 2012 or early 2013 (I posted it in this same thread). Not even 4 years have passed. I just hope repair won't be too expensive. Already got too many expenses lined up this month til next year.

How long do LED TVs typically last without breaking down? Is it worth repairing or will this be the beginning of a series of components going kaput?

Our oldest is from 2011, a Devant 32. No problems so far with it.  Repairing it really depends on budget/cost.  You'll probably get a newer and better and bigger set for little above original cost nowadays.

i think it would be better if you just bought a new one.  the price you paid for the 32inch could probably get you a 50incher now.  and if you want to buy a new 32inch LED tv it would just be around 10k.  so it seems to make no sense to repair an old tv.  unless of course if the problem is just capacitors since theyre very cheap.

i have an LCD tv here that is still working fine.  lol

The 32 Panasonic LCD I bought in early 2010 is still good. Though we have since bought a 46 Westinghouse in 2012 and a 60 Samsung in early 2016. Uohrade ka na lang, that 32 has a max res of 720 anyway.

My 42" Panny plasma still going strong. Bought Dec2009/Jan2010.  Hooked up to ITX haswell i3 rig running OpenELEC.

Can't wait until OLED price drops to PhP1k/inch, but this might take several years with only LG making them.  Seems Samsung is heading towards quantum-dot LED displays though.

Looks like I just got unlucky with my purchase. I'll bring it to a service center and decide from there whether to fix or replace/upgrade.

All still working, well the Westinghouse remote is broken so were using a universal remote. But otherwise all are soldiering on.

Yeah. I believe we bought it at around the same time while it was on sale at all appliance stores. It's on this thread actually. Well, now we know why it was on sale. At least hers broke within the warranty period.

Yours is displaying the same symptoms of my first ever LCD TV, also a Sony Bravia 32". I asked around and the problem was a defective LCD panel. Mine lasted over 5 years. I bought another Sony 40" when they offered it on sale for 1/4 the price I paid for my first LCD. I am still using it now another 5 years later.

That's depressing. I was hoping it was just some loose solder or drifting components.

I'd better have that confirmed this weekend while there are still TVs on sale.

Now is a good time to grab a plasma TV IMHO. Sets should be cheap now because they're "obsolete".

I actually attempted to fix by disassembling the LCD and cleaning and reheating the IC parts in case of cold solder joints without success. I then disconnected the ribbon cable from the main controller to the LCD panel. I noticed that the same area of blurred display still persisted. That's when I concluded the panel itself was busted.

Plasma's been FHD for ages, just don't pick a low-end model.

My brother-in-law had or were sold the same idea. He bought a Samsung plasma 40" or 42" about 2 years ago. He complained it ran quite hot unless he reduced the brightness. They were using it when suddenly something blew inside the TV set.
