Finding help on how to fix LCD TVs is difficult. Usually, specific information on any electronic/TV/appliance item will be very difficult to look for and if ever they are located, they will probably not be completely provided. Worse, they may be found in incomplete chunks such that you will need to scour the internet for the other chunks to complete the information.
That is why zeroing in on a website that particularly offers information on the specific item of electronics that you are interested in will usually mean some rejoicing of some sort because most of these sites are so focused on their subjects that they tend to contain a lot of info about their particular topics. One tiny drawback when it comes to these highly specific and technical sites is that they may require some membership fees.
Paying for it isn't necessarily bad especially if the money goes to paying for the webmaster's efforts on making his/her forum really functional for its members. Membership fees are there to make sure that help websites like them will be able to keep on helping people out in their search for technical assistance.
I have been a member of such internet sites even if they required some form of monetary payment (in my case, I choose those that require only one-time fee for immediate access that do not expire). Below are more reasons why I recommend going for pay sites instead of the free-to-join sites.
1. There are some electronics repair sites, like some flat screen TV repair training membership sites that I personally joined, who require only a one-time fee in exchange for unlimited access to their vault of technical data; which, in the case of the TV repair membership sites, pertain to TV repair how-to information and technical literature. Furthermore, you get lifetime access which means you get access to future database updates which is a pretty cool deal especially for people in the electronics servicing field.
2. These pay-sites have spent a lot of time and resources gathering the things you need like the training and service manuals, schematic diagrams, step-by-step how-to guides that make life a whole lot easier. Basically almost everything you need are there ready for you to download and digest. Imagine how much time will be saved when you choose this route as opposed to going the free-to-join sites that waste a lot of time and effort (scouring search engine result pages).
3. If you look at it on the long term angle, joining one-time-fee based training membership sites will probably cost you a lot less than you think because there are commerce sites that offer the technical library on a pay-per-download basis.
Most membership sites that ask for one-time payment have tons of technical literature in their servers that are ready for download 24/7. Some of these sites have around 400 to 600 (or more) service and training manuals, schematic diagrams, step-by-step guides in easily readable formats. Other sources of these may ask for for $10 per download per download. So for the price of $50, which is approximately what the one-time payment training sites charge, you will get only about 5 downloads from a per-download basis site. This is a rip-off compared to the one-payment sites.
4. TV repair training forums or bulletin boards are great for those who prefers studying inside the comfort of their home or office. A convenient setup for anyone who needs to work and study at the same time. Learn how to repair plasma or LCD TVs anytime and anywhere!
5. Electronics are always advancing and going through its life cycle of invention and obsolescence. Electronics repair shops can have a fighting chance to keep up with the likewise evolving needs of consumers in the servicing department. Online electronics repair training sites allow you to learn as quickly as possible to take advantage of new market demands.
The recent surges in sales of flat screen TVs like LCD TVs is indication of some really good days ahead for the TV repair man. That is, provided he is ready for it... Train for the future of electronics through online training membership sites and experience the benefits of preparedness first hand.
