Do you need a regular voltage for an LCD TV?

When the electrical current fluctuates, LCD TVs may be damaged, especially if the voltage reaches a high or low peak. Using a voltage regulator can help regulate the current that reaches the TV, extending its life.

Considerations

If you live in an area where the electric current fluctuates due to high demand, using a voltage regulator could extend the life of your TV. Power cuts can also affect the devices. If your current is stable, you may not need a voltage regulator.

Types

There are two basic types of voltage regulators available for LCD TVs: assets and liabilities. Active regulators can increase the current that reaches the TV when the current falls. Passive regulators limit the amount of current that reaches a device but can not increase the voltage when it falls. If your area rarely experiences drops in the current, a passive regulator may be enough.
