How To Claim Your TV Warranty Without Any Problems

Is your TV malfunctioning? If it is, you should first check your warranty. In case it is still valid, you need to claim it and get your TV repaired or replaced as soon as possible.

You must be thinking about how many phone calls you will need to place until you reach the right person who can supply adequate instruction on how to file a TV warranty claim.

DoNotPay can help you claim your home, car, or TV warranty without too much fuss!

Is Your TV Still Under Warranty?

If your TV has broken down, do not try to fix it yourself as this is one of the disqualifying criteria for warranty claims.

What you should know is that most manufacturers offer one-year warranties. This means you need to check the date on the receipt to see if your warranty is still valid. If it is, you are covered for parts and labor, and you should let DoNotPay claim your TV warranty for you.

Should You Buy an Extended Warranty for a TV?

If you are thinking about purchasing a new TV and are racking your brain whether to purchase an extended TV warranty this time around, take a look at the pros and cons:

  • It offers more comprehensive coverage than a manufacturer warranty
  • Most extended TV warranties cover repairs for up to three years
  • If you are buying an expensive TV set, an extended warranty might bring you peace of mind
  • It offers in-home service or free pickup
  • Most TVs come with a manufacturer’s warranty that will cover any repairs for twelve months
  • If you bought the TV by credit card, you might have a credit card’s warranty extension for an additional year
  • An extended TV warranty can be pricey
  • Submitting a warranty claim can be challenging (not with DoNotPay!)

Most extended television warranties cover the following failures:

  • Normal wear and tear
  • Improper handling or installation
  • TVs with removed serial numbers

A TV manufacturer’s warranty typically covers your repairs for one year, while an extended one can cover them for up to five years.

Make sure to get the specifics of the terms and conditions of the extended warranty plan before you choose to purchase it. You should also be careful not to wait too long to get a TV extended warranty as you can get some extended warranties up to a certain period after the purchase date. That is why you need to keep your receipt on hand as you must present it when you decide to buy an extended TV warranty.
