Full Answer

Standard LCD televisions use a series of cold cathode fluorescent lights to illuminate the screen from behind. LED televisions can be lit from behind or edge lit. Back-lit LED televisions offer better contrast and sharpness than edge-lit models. LED televisions that are back lit are thicker than edge-lit models because the lighting is behind the screen.

Another type of television, called OLED, produces better picture quality than LED and LCD. OLED televisions are more expensive than LED televisions.

    How to know when your TV picture tube is bad?

    A:

    TV picture problems can usually be spotted by checking to see if there are any issues or abnormalities with the TV's On-Screen Display, or OSD, which can be checked by using the TV's remote, not the cable or satellite remote, and clicking on the volume, channel and input buttons to see if the TV's projection lamp is working properly. If it isn't, those patterns that are usually displayed on the screen will look distorted or disappear entirely.
