    Should you turn off a TV when unplugging wires?


    There are many different makes and models of TVs on the market and many variations when it comes to how to operate them safely. If you want to know how to turn off a TV safely, it can be wise to refer to the user manual if you still have it so you can unplug wires safely. The evolution of technology has made it safer to unplug wires without turning off your set, but it’s always best to look at the instructions that came with the TV to find out what the best thing to do is. If you no longer have the manual, you may be able to use a search engine to find an online version. In some sets, unplugging a TV before it is switched off can compromise the condition of the television, though damage is more likely to occur if this happens on a regular basis over time.

    What to do if you are hurt when you turn off a TV

    If you come to harm when you turn off a TV even though you have followed the manufacturers’ instructions, you may be able to take legal action. At Accident Advice Helpline, we have vast experience when it comes to helping people claim for injuries sustained via manufacturing faults, and you do not need to give us any money to make a claim. Most claimants never need to attend court. Furthermore, you won’t need to undergo more than one additional medical assessment.
