What To Do When Your LED Display Panel Breaks Down

What To Do When Your LED Display Panel Breaks Down

Things tend to break all the time. Of course, you might think that buying a quality item (in this case, a quality LED display panel) will prevent this from happening. And it will, for a few months or even a few years. But no matter how well you take care of something, things tend to wear down, especially after long periods of time. 

And unfortunately, accidents can happen too. If you have an LED display panel outside, the chances of your display breaking down are much bigger than if your display were to be indoors. This risk is mostly caused by various conditions, such as rain, snow, hail, wind, and so on. 

But don’t think that indoor LED displays can’t get damaged due to accidents too. Accidents can happen when cleaning your panels or during maintenance controls.

Now, when you see your LED display not working, it’s only natural to panic. Quality LED wall displays can get pretty pricey, and you don’t want to replace the whole display. But even getting your display fixed can get pretty pricey. 

So then, what can you do to get your LED wall panel to work again?  

Find the Source of the Issue

The most common issues that can appear when an LED display is not working are:

  • The LED display goes blank 
  • Horizontal line start appearing on the LED display
  • The LED display has no sound output

The solution to your issue depends on the nature of the said issue. If your screen goes blank for example, you have to find out why that problem appeared in the first place and try to find a solution to it. 

Finding the source will not only help you fix your LED display, but will also help you prevent such problems from happening in the future.

Finding the Source and Fixing Blank LED Panels 

Let’s take an example to better understand this. Let’s say that your LED wall display suddenly went blank. Nothing you do is making it return to its original work settings.  

In this instance, the power supply device within the LED panel is most likely malfunctioning. The power supply unit is in charge of receiving electrical currents and transmitting them to all the other LED panel components. A rapid surge in input supply generally causes problems within the power supply unit. Capacitors on power supply boards frequently fail.

You may check this by disassembling the LED display and looking for a leaky or bulging capacitor. These issues are extremely prevalent in new LED displays, and the repairs are usually rather easy and quick. Finding a specialist is suggested because replacing the capacitor will necessitate soldering expertise.

Finding the Source and Fixing Horizontal Lines on LED Panels

Low signal strength in the set-top box cable (which is attached to the LED panel) can be the source of the problem in this situation. If you link the set-top box to an older LED panel, the problem might not occur. 

The reason behind this is that the previous panel required less power to operate. This is not the case with newer LED wall panel sets. These ones generally need more powerful input signals.

Find a Good Fix for Your LED Panel Problems

Now, let’s say you find the source of your LED wall issue. There are two possible outcomes after you do this. If you’re tech-savvy or if you have an in-house maintenance worker, then you can probably fix the issue yourself.

But oftentimes your LED panel problems can be more complex, especially with outdoor LED displays. In that case, the best solution is to hire a professional LED maintenance worker to check the whole display, troubleshoot the issue, and fix it. 

Of course, as many people say, prevention is the best cure. So you shouldn’t wait for your LED panels to break drown. Instead, you should have a professional come and look at your LED displays regularly and perform maintenance check-ups. This will decrease the chances of your display walls randomly shutting down. 

Bottom Line 

Fixing up LED wall displays is definitely not an easy nor cheap task. However, there are ways to prevent this from happening. You can always ask professionals to come regularly and check up on your displays, but the issues all stem from the LED panel. 

If you will get a low-quality LED panel, then of course that the panel will be prone to more breakdowns. But if the panel you purchase is of superior quality, then the chances of it breaking down are smaller. 

Where can you find that kind of LED wall displays? Well, you don’t have to look that far because we have them! You can contact us to find out which LED panel would suit your business. Not only that, but we have a team of professionals ready to install and maintain your LED panels once you buy them
