TV Brands That Fail Most & Why

By Jason Knott
ShopJimmy.com, a website for TV replacement parts, identifies the components that fail most often, causing popular TV manufacturers to make this dubious list.


As a supplier of TV parts, ShopJimmy.com analyzes certain industry-related themes: TV models that fail frequently, TV parts with broad compatibility, etc.


Since CE Pro's readers deal with custom installations and home theaters, here is some insight to help you prepare for and triage TV-related issues.




Whether you occasionally encounter TV failures or fix TVs regularly, here's a list of TV parts that you should have in your inventory at all times based on frequency of failure, according to ShopJimmy.com.

1. Multi-Brand DLP Chip (Samsung 4719-001997)

This Texas Instruments-manufactured chip is the basis of DLP technology, employing the use of up to 2 million tiny mirrors. This particularly versatile part is found in at least 50 different TV models across several brands. If a DLP TV displays white dots on the screen, there's a good chance that you'll need to replace the DLP Chip.

This is a very misleading article. I don't see any list of "TV Brands That Fail Most" and the Mitsubishi Lamp section would apply to literally hundreds of brands and models of DLP, RPTV, projectors, etc.

I was hoping for something with some real meat in it, that's not even a snack.

So...wait...lamps go out in DLP's? I thought they were magic lamps that last forever?

You're thinking of LED DLPs, they're the lamps that last forever. Traditional DLPs require lamp replacement every couple of thousand hours or so.

The comments from the article's page has a reply from a shopjimmy guy who is basically saying their title was changed by CEpro just to grab our attention and get clicks....

After many complaints in the same vein, CEPro changed the article's title to "Fix Common TV Fails: Carry These Spare Parts".

LEDs do not last forever and have an average life of around 50K hours......


As a tech junkie that article sucked big time and had no substance to it
