The modern times have given us the gift of cutting edge technology, and equipment for every task along with. We are surrounded by a plethora of electronics and machinery around us. I also use a lot of these in my routine life such as mobiles, laptops, computers, televisions, microwaves, and many more.
During my time with these pieces of machinery, I have come across a lot of faulty or damaged equipment. One such time was when I had to install a pre-owned television set that I had purchased for my home. It was in an acceptable condition, and I set it up on the table in my room. I then plugged it into the power outlet and switched it on after connecting all the cables. The cable network reception was strong but I was not satisfied with the video quality and the audio was not working as well. I worked with the settings but to no avail. I removed the plug and opened up the case to see the machine parts and locate the fault. After looking a lot and being unsuccessful in my attempt, I took it to the nearby repair shop and got it fixed. Being satisfied with the results, I brought it back to my home and then proceeded with its installation. After a few minutes, the set up was complete and I started to stream through the channels with satisfaction.
All in all, it was a hectic and tiring process, because the television had a few issues with both its hardware and software which gave me a lot of problems. The end was satisfactory as I got it repaired from the shop after being unable to fix it myself.
