Watu wakiambiwa wanunue akina LG,Samsung and Sony wanateta ni expensive!
TV za TCL,Hisense etc ni kama akina tecno,oppo na xiaomi kwa simu.
Curious to know how long you’ve used the TV.
These are just overated items. Enzi za kujaza hao na sony ama samsung kutoka tv hadi radio zimeisha. TCL is making major sales in US proving its popularity. Huyu ni bahati mbaya tu.

In the west people replace TVs very often almost yearly si kama huku tunakaa na TV 5+ years during which time most TVs za bei rahisi almost always will have broken down.

All LED have their own life span, so the more you watch your tv the more the LED will deteriorate. The backlight on tv are just like the normal LED bulbs in our living room, itafikia mahali itazima and you will need to replace them. That is how it works. Muache kusema sijui chinese and western products.

I believe it could also be a software issue probably due to a failed shutdown procedure esp. if it was shut from the socket. I av bricked mine too several times trying to install unofficial updates. Mayb u cld try reinstalling the OEM firmware using a flash drive n see what happens.

TCL ni t.v sambamba kabisa. Go research one of the top-selling and critically acclaimed t.v in the U.S and Canada market and you will be suprised TCL is on that list.
Unlike LG, Samsung and Sony, TCL manufucture most of their t.v components. They don't outsource that much. That's why their tvs are cheaper.
In fact, TCL started out as manufuctering t.v parts for other companies before they decided to make their own tvs.

This is a simple issue to solve. Shida ni backlight zimeungua. Pelekea fundi and let him test all the strips to determine which ones have gone bad. Replace the bad ones and you have your tv back in a few minutes. However, be very careful about being ripped off by fundis who might try to take advantage of your ignorance. Breakdown the costs into testing for bad strips (300), buying new strips (200 per strip), and replacing the strips (300). Do not let some scheming fundi charge you 5000 bob as many are wont to do. If possible fanya surveillance kwanza and gauge what different fundis will charge. Make sure you mention what you want done.Apana enda kusema TV yako iko na shida, just tell them you want the backlights checked and replaced.
