Does warranty cover a bricked TV?

A manufacturer’s warranty typically doesn’t cover accidental damage, including bricking a device.

But there are two things to consider:

  • If the TV is bricked due to a hardware malfunction, like a faulty component or manufacturing defect, it’s more likely to be covered under warranty.
  • Some warranties don’t cover software-related issues that brick the TV, especially if it’s due to user errors like unauthorized modifications or installing incompatible software.
However, software updates pushed by the manufacturer that cause bricking might be covered.

Before you contact the retailer or directly to the support center, check if your TV is still under warranty.

Most standard warranties are for 1 year, but some extend to 2 or 3 years.

Carefully read the warranty document to see if bricking is specifically excluded, or if there are conditions for coverage.
