How much power does my TV consume? Does it make a what factors take toll in this size, type, settings?
These are all questions I was wondering so I took the initiative and researched it to write a blog for others wondering the same thing. Fortunately all TVs since 2011 are required to have a yellow and black Energy Consumption sticker indicating their annual estimated consumption. The average consumption turned out to be substantially lower than I thought it was going to be. In fact the monthly average cost is typically never more than the price of an average lunch. Ranging anywhere from $5 for a 19 inch to $38 for a 65 inch per year!! These consumption numbers are based off of the standard $.11/kWh and average usage of 5 hours a day. They also figure it with you the Manufacturer’s factory display setting. These almost always get adjusted once the TV is brought into a home.
Another big factor in energy consumption is the type of TV you have. Plasma tends to consume substantially more than LED and LCD TVs. The fact that they put energy consumption stickers on TVs tells me it was a legitimate concern in the past. At the rate things are going. This is not going to be a concern for anyone in the future. Energy consumption appears to only be getting more efficient with our electronics. For more information contact us at 919-342-0308 .

The most frequently asked question TV Repair services.
Every single day, some times few times through the day, we get the same question : How much is it to get Cracked flat screen TV repaired?
We answered this question quite few times and we still get the same question, like I said, quite few times every day.
First of all, flat panel screens are NOT repairable, once it cracked - it need to be replaced, noting could be done, just replacement.
How much? The replacement price could be found in two ways:
you can bring it the repair shop and they will tell you the price ( but they may charge you for that),
or you can call the manufacture with your TV info, you may need to get that number from inside, and ask them for the price.
In most cases, it is not worth it. Once the screen is cracked, you may need to start thinking about the new TV. If you still have a questions, you can call us : 918-2640116, or check our web: www.tulsatvrepair.biz !
LG’s sprawling CES booth was a visual feast, outfitted with dozens of dazzling digital displays. Among the multitude of screens we found confirmation that 8K resolution has officially arrived, as we got up-close with two different market-ready LG 8K TVs.
The LG OLED Z9 8K TV is, as its name implies, and sporting the new resolution. Built as if answering a challenge to create the best TV possible with today’s technology, the Z9 OLED pushes boundaries that the company had yet to explore. In addition to being their first 8K OLED TV, the LG Z9 is also the brand’s largest OLED TV, measuring in at a whopping 88 inches—eleven inches larger than any previous model. The tremendous display is powered by a second-gen Alpha 9 smart image processor and ThinQ Ai, which utilize deep learning algorithms to intelligently analyze and upscale content to create a visually-optimized end product. So while 8K content is likely a long way away, whatever you do watch on the Z9 8K TV will look better than on a 4K TV. A video doesn’t do it justice, but we can vouch for the image quality. It’s probably the best display we’ve ever seen. The Z9 OLED is rounded out with full Alexa and Google Assistant integration, and is both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos compatible.
If you’re hoping to jump on the large-screen 8K TV train, but OLED is just a little outside of your budget, the LG SM99 LED TV is the next best thing. This set features the same intelligent processing system and 8K resolution in an LED display, and is the first model to wear the new name for LG’s premium LED TV lineup: NanoCell TV. The TVs in this lineup leverage LG’s nano particle technology for improved color accuracy, viewing angles and ultra-narrow bezels.

The result is remarkably dark blacks in an image, and when you combine this with the brightness of the whites an OLED panel is able to produce you're left with a fantastically vibrant image.
LG and Panasonic, pretty much the most consistent producers of OLED televisions on the planet, like to use the term "infinite contrast" to describe how the self-lighting pixels switch off completely when reproducing black giving it an "absolute" black color instead of a "relative" black that only describes how dark one pixel can get compared to the brightest pixel on the screen.
For years there was a question mark about longevity of OLED panels, while production lines have been impossible to make profitable due to high failure rates. But as companies like LG have invested huge quantities of money in the technology – with the likes of Philips and Sony joining the fray – its affordability has gotten better, although it's still much more expensive than competing technologies.
The advantages of OLED go beyond simple static image quality to the responsiveness and smoothness of the display itself, meaning gamers and home cinema aficionados are going to absolutely love OLED. It's capable of a refresh rate of as low as 0.001ms, which for reference, is around 1,000 times faster than a standard LED-backlit LCD panel, while also being superior to the now-discontinued plasma tech, too.
And, because the lighting source they use is so tiny, the depth of screen sizes has shrunk at the same rate. That means OLED TVs have awesomely deep blacks and bright, peak whites, improved color accuracy as well as smooth responsive motion - and all from a form factor that's just a few millimetres in depth and much lighter than standard TVs.
Big-screen TVs and other products you buy that may get more expensive because of a possible trade war with China
Why tariffs are a risk to the consumer economy: Fmr. Saks CEO 12:09 PM ET Wed, 4 April 2018 | 02:29Prices for big-screen televisions and some household appliances could go up significantly if the Trump administration's proposed tariffs on Chinese imports are enacted.
"On a $4,000 TV ... the tariffs might have a several-hundred-dollar price impact," said David French, senior vice president for government relations at the National Retail Federation, an advocacy group.
"We're still assessing the list," French said. "There is machinery involved in consumer goods. ... There are chemicals listed that we believe are components of cosmetics and toiletries."
The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative proposed late Tuesday an additional 25 percent tariff on an extensive list of Chinese imports, valued at $50 billion for the year and ranging from aircraft parts to vaccines. A public hearing on the list is scheduled for May 15, and filing requests to appear and comment are due April 23.
Here are some of the consumer-related goods that appeared on the list:
But he and other analysts pointed out that for a U.S. economy roughly $18 trillion in size, 25 percent tariffs on $50 billion of Chinese imports will have a relatively small effect overall on consumer prices.
For example, it is not clear the extent to which tariffs would affect imports of dishwashers.
Chinese manufacturer Haier, which acquired GE Appliances in 2016, "only imports a very small number of niche dishwashers designed for small spaces," spokesperson Kim Freeman said in an email to CNBC. "We make about 95 percent of our dishwashers in the U.S. in Louisville, Kentucky."
"At this point we are not sure what the impact on consumers will be," Freeman said.
The National Retail Federation estimates that access to imported goods through free trade agreements boosts the purchasing power of the average American family by $18,000 a year.
"It's going to be very difficult for the retailer to manage their supply chain in order to handle these tariffs," French said. "Consumers may be price sensitive enough that they may slow their holiday purchases. These may be 'Grinch' tariffs."
Cheaper to fix than replace!
In today's economy, it just makes more sense to fix a TV rather than spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars more to buy a new one!
