Now that you’ve made the wise decision to purchase an LED screen display, it’s time to care for it. While LED displays, both outdoor and indoor, are becoming easier to manage, they will never be a “set it and forget it” innovation. They will always necessitate some level of maintenance and care. If they are not properly maintained, they can burn out prematurely. They also require protection and cleaning from overheating. The bottom line is that they require attention. We’ll give you some pointers on how to care for your LED video screen so that it lasts a long time and performs well day after day.
- Cleaning the Surfaces
While there is no need to tear down the system more than once a year for a deep clean, the surface area should be wiped clean regularly. When exposed to the elements regularly, outdoor LED displays collect a lot of grime and dust. And if this dust blocks the data docks, it can cause elements to overheat. As a result, cleaning the screen with a dry cloth or a small amount of alcohol regularly is essential. If you use a damp cloth, make sure to hoover the display afterwards.
- Upkeep of Hardware
Check the wiring and other hardware components for any damage caused by accidents, rodents, loose connections, and so on. Check fasteners to ensure they have not become loose due to environmental factors. To avoid element rust, keep humid elements away from all sections of the solution, not just the screen.
Always be aware of your product’s mean time between failures (MTBF) and do not leave the screen running incessantly outside of the prescribed range. To prevent issues caused by overheating, the LED display must be allowed to cool down.
- Content Maintenance
Though this may come as a surprise, keeping the content of your LED screen fresh and revised is just as important to keep the hardware in good condition. Regularly inhabiting the display with new content will ensure that your installation stays relevant and generates revenue for you consistently.
- Sequence of Switching
Open your computer/software programme and wait for it to fully load before turning on the LED display. When turning off your LED display, first turn off the power to the screen and then turn off the computer. Following this switching sequence will ensure that your digital signage works properly.
- Power Source
Frequent power surges can quickly heat your transparent LED display screen, which is especially bad if the temperature outside is already high. You must ensure that the power supply to the setup is stable and that adequate ground safety has been installed.
- Expertise in Handling
Non-professionals should not be allowed to touch any wiring components of your outdoor LED screen. Also, do not tear down and reassemble the screens at random unless you have a good understanding of what you’re doing.
