Last Updated Dec 8, 2021

Like any standard home appliance, maintenance is key when it comes to smart TVs. The better you care for your smart TV the longer it will operate which is ideal given how large of an investment a good quality smart TV can be.Hisense TVs are no exception. 

While many factors contribute to a TV not working anymore, including brand and general use, the average age for any smart TV is 4 to 10 years or 4,000 to 10,000 hours of use. 

Whether you’re an avid gamer, a binge-watcher, or only use your TV to catch up on the latest local news, chances are that the idea of buying a new TV is overwhelming. There are several key things to remember when you walk into that electronics store, such as price, brand, size, and what that unit is going to be used for.

How Many Years Does A Smart TV Last?

Regardless of brand, most TVs will last 4 to 10 years with moderate use. A few things to think about when picking out a new TV are included below.

Where And How Often Will It Be Used?

Is this TV going in the main room, or is it going in a less frequented room? The more you use a TV the faster it’s going to wear out even with proper maintenance. In high traffic rooms such as a living room, there is a greater chance of the TV getting broken by children or animals, warranting a replacement.

There are several places you don’t want to put your TV after you’ve decided which room it will be in. These areas of your home are:

  • Windows. The harmful UV rays damage internal components.
  • Near the floor or a vent. Dust can enter and damage the internal components.

Placing your TV on a wall mount or a TV stand/entertainment center is always going to be your best bet when placing it in your home. This will allow for proper maintenance and decrease the chances of breaking or other damage. Also, be sure the brightness and contrast aren’t too high because that causes the LEDs to wear faster as well.

Who Will Be Using The TV?

This goes hand in hand with the TV’s location because depending on who is using it, this could cause more wear on the unit. 

For example, children often leave things on when they are done using them, such as the lights in a room they are no longer in. Leaving a TV on when not being used can cause many things to happen such as overheating.

What Brand Will You Choose?

Price equals quality. The more expensive a TV is the better made the parts are, which means the TV will last longer. 

There are however still good, more cost-efficient options out there as far as TVs are concerned, but you will always get back what you put into a product.

What is the Longest-Lasting TV brand?

When you purchase a TV, price, and quality go hand in hand as far as overall durability. Some of the top TV manufacturers are:

  • Samsung
  • LG
  • Sony
  • Panasonic

Let’s get into each of these below.

Samsung

Samsung is known for producing top-tier products, and their TVs are no exception. Samsung also offers regular updates to all their higher-end technology which keeps their products running smoothly and efficiently. The lowest resolution you can find on a Samsung TV is 4k, with the highest being 8k, so no matter what you are watching the quality will be worth the investment.

Sony

Sony has to be the biggest and most well-known TV manufacturer, the reason behind this is because they use a technology called OLED or Organic Light Emitting Diode. This type of technology is thought to be better because OLED displays emit their own light, by using a thin carbon-based built into the TV screen. 

When electricity passes through this organic material, it lights up. Sony’s use of this technology allows for phenomenal picture quality, which is why customers like their TVs so much.

LG

Another company using OLED technology in their TVs is LG. LG TVs have a faster response time than other TVs and don’t experience nearly as much lag in the picture. These TVs are highly sought after by console gamers due to the nearly instant pixel response rate which minimizes picture blurring. 

And the use of OLED eliminates the grayscale on darker parts of your screen, so dark and creepy corners in horror movies remain dark and creepy.

Panasonic

Finally, we have Panasonic, which has been making and producing TVs since CRT TVs were the standard in homes. With a history like theirs, you can be sure of the longevity of your TV. Their custom OLED panels yield incredible high contrast output allowing viewers to watch in near cinematic quality. 

Not only do they boast an expanded color pallet loved by Hollywood’s most famous colorists, but Panasonic TVs are also the most energy-efficient TVs on the market.

Why Does Your Hisense TV Stop Working?

Is your TV not working? A bit vague I know, but say you go to turn on your TV to watch the latest episode of the newest crime thriller you’ve been watching, but your TV isn’t turning on. The most obvious first step is to check the outlet and the power cord, making sure that everything is how it should be. 

Still not working? Check out these solutions below.

BrokenPlugin

One good way to check if it’s the outlet and not the power cord itself is to plug a different device into that same outlet, if it works then you may need to purchase a new power cord. Another trick to try is hard resetting your TV, this can be done by leaving your TV unplugged for about 50-60 seconds and then plunging it back in.

Dead Remote Batteries

If you determine that it’s not the outlet or the power cord, check the remote batteries. It’s always a good idea to swap your batteries once every six months, and when you do, hold the power button for about ten seconds without the batteries being in the remote. 

Doing this drains all the stored power from the remote so it accepts the new batteries better, it’s kinda like a reset for the remote.
