Before you go and buy the LCD TV, you need to make sure that you determine how you will install your TV and if you would like to have it mounted or if you would like your TV to be displayed. There are a lot of people will purchase something and they will not take into consideration that the TVs need to be positioned in the room.

You will want to not only think about the flat screen TV as something that you have to purchase, but something that you need to put into your room. You need to work the TV into the décor of the room. You will need to give some thought to the matter before you go and purchase the flat screen TV. You will find that there are many ways that you can install your new LCD TV, but you can fit one of these TVs in any room in your home.

You will also want to know how they work so that you can be prepared for the pros and cons of these types of TV’s. You will also need to consider the advantages of the LCD televisions compared to other forms of technology like the plasma. You will find that there are a lot of other things that you need to consider when purchasing such a TV, like the price of the TV.

Once you’ve made your decision and purchased your new TV, here are some tips

Let us begin by reviewing the most obvious of things you should look at before you even think of mounting or setting up your television…

Tip 1 – Check the System
You would not bring any new technology home, like a computer, without first checking it out and making sure you had all the parts, right? This is even more true when you buy a customized product. Consider your new display the ultimate in luxury and customization. When you get your television home safe and sound, make sure you check and make sure all parts are in order before you attempt mounting or placement of your television.

Tip 2 – Mounting
If you bought a flat-panel with the intent of mounting it on a wall or on the ceiling, the last thing you want to do is set it up incorrectly. Can you imagine? You invited the neighbors over for the first “viewing.” You have the popcorn and beer out, you click on your television – and nothing happens! Well, don’t worry. Chances are, if you mount your display the right way the first time, you’ll have no worries.

Make sure you have everything you need to mount your television, including a good and handy friend. You will need someone to help you lift and place your television on the mount while you secure it. You will also need traditional tools, like tape measurers, screwdrivers and a drill to name a few. Your manufacturers guide or the wall mount instructions will probably contain a list of tools you need to set the mount up properly. Or, the large electronic stores have professionals that will do the job for you.

Tip 3 – Before You Turn It On
Before you start your viewing, allow it some time to rest. It may be hot from travel in a tight, unaired box. Let it sit for a few hours and settle in. Any product worth its money needs a little time to “air out” after traveling.

Once you do allow it some air, you can turn it on. For the first 200 hours or so, you will want to avoid letting static images rest for too long on the display. This can lead to problems including “burn-in” which may result in permanent damage to your color pixels.

Make sure when watching DVDs you pause for short periods only. If you plan to step away from your display for a long-time, or are not certain of the time you will be away, it is always better to turn off the screen.

Tip 4 – Enjoy!
You might as well invite some friends over to show off your handiwork (if you mounted the television on your own). Even if you did not mount the display, why not invite some people over for a movie and have a party? Buying a new home theatre system is as good a reason as any to celebrate.
