When it comes to repairing televisions or any electronic device, one of the key steps to make the entire process go smoothly is to be able to source out the relevant repair or service manual for a particular device or gadget. Of course this isn't a prerequisite 100% of the time (especially for experienced technicians) but it can be a big boost for those who are working on devices that they have not worked on before. One can imagine this as being critical for new devices or models that just recently came out.
The Internet can be a gold mine for any information but sometimes it becomes hard to look for specific things due to the amount of garbage that is out there. That is why I came up with these listings. The aim is to put all the relevant online sources in one place that can help anyone who may be looking. The links below will bring you to listings of sites that offer TV repair training resources, courses and other learning material, listings of sites that provide repair, service manuals and schematics are also provided for those looking for specific information on any TV model.
You'll find that I've classified the site listings into two types, the pay and the free sites, so you'd know what you're getting into if you decide to check out the sites. The former are, as the name implies, sites that offer repair/service manuals access for a fee while the latter is the opposite. As a tip, I'd make sure to look at the free sites first and just consider the pay sites if whatever I'm looking for isn't available for free.

If you’re buying a new flat screen television I’m sure you’ve come across a class of TV that manufacturers have labeled as “LED TVs”.
