As more and more people looking to invest in the comfort and convenience of a TV Bed, the more potential problems some people may encounter when it comes to technical issues. To state the obvious, a TV bed does have a few more moving parts than a regular bed so there are more opportunities for things to go wrong. All of our beds come with a detailed instruction manual so our advice is this should be your first port of call. But we thought it would be useful to list some of the common problems (and solutions) you could encounter when you invest in a TV bed. And of course, if you have a problem (and in most cases, we know you won’t) please get in touch with us at TV Beds Northwest - we’re always happy to help.
Troubleshooting Issue 1: Does your TV Bed have no power?
Check the power outlet: Ensure that the power outlet your TV bed is connected to is working properly. Plug in another device to confirm if it receives power.
Examine the power cable: Make sure the power cable is securely connected to both the TV bed and the power outlet. If it appears loose, firmly plug it in.
Test the power supply unit: If the power cable is securely connected and the outlet is functioning, the issue might lie with the power supply unit. Contact the manufacturer or a professional technician for further assistance.
Troubleshooting Issue 2: Does the TV in your TV Bed have poor picture quality?
Adjust the picture settings: Access the settings menu on your TV bed and navigate to the picture settings. Ensure that the brightness, contrast, and sharpness are properly configured.
Check the cables: Ensure all cables, such as HDMI or AV cables, are securely connected to both the TV bed and the external devices. If any cable appears damaged, consider replacing it.
Address signal interference: Move any electronic devices that emit strong signals, such as routers or smartphones, away from the TV bed. They can interfere with the TV's reception.
Troubleshooting Issue 3: Does your TV Bed have sound problems?
Verify audio settings: Access the audio settings menu on your TV bed and ensure the volume is appropriately adjusted. Check if any sound modes or enhancements are enabled, as they might affect audio quality.
Examine audio connections: Ensure that the audio cables are firmly connected to both the TV bed and any external audio devices, such as sound bars or speakers. Replace any damaged cables if necessary.
Test the speakers: If the audio problem persists, try connecting a different audio source, such as headphones or external speakers, to determine if the issue lies with the TV bed's speakers. If the sound is normal, the built-in speakers may require repair or replacement.
Troubleshooting Issue 4: Is your remote control for your TV bed no longer working?
Replace the batteries: If the remote control becomes unresponsive, the batteries might be depleted. Replace them with fresh batteries and ensure they are properly inserted.
Check for signal interference: Remove any obstacles or devices that may obstruct the remote control's signal transmission to the TV bed. Also, ensure that the remote control is within a reasonable range of the TV bed.
Reset the remote control: Refer to the TV bed's user manual to find the instructions for resetting the remote control to its default settings. Follow the steps provided.
They say the best cure is prevention. This adage is a true with a TV bed as it is with any other product or your health. So we thought we would list some common maintenance and care tips for your Tv bed.
Regular dusting: Dust the TV bed regularly, including the TV screen and the surrounding areas, using a soft, lint-free cloth. Avoid using harsh cleaning agents that may damage the TV bed's surface.
Cable management: Keep the cables organised and untangled to prevent them from getting tangled or damaged. Use cable clips or zip ties to secure them in place.
Avoid excessive force: When operating the TV bed's motorised mechanisms, apply gentle and even pressure. Avoid forcing any parts or using excessive force, as it may lead to damage.
Follow the manufacturer's instructions: Read and follow the manufacturer's instructions regarding the assembly, installation, and usage of the TV bed. Adhering to these guidelines can help prevent potential issues.
Regular inspections: Periodically inspect the TV bed for any signs of wear, loose connections, or damage. Address any issues promptly to avoid further complications.

By understanding common issues like power loss, poor picture quality, sound problems, remote control malfunctions, and unstable mounting, you can address these problems effectively. Remember to follow the provided troubleshooting tips, maintain your TV bed properly, seek professional assistance when needed and always, and always refer to the instruction manual. And, most importantly, if in doubt - contact us.
Some customers also asked:
Can I connect external devices to my TV bed, such as gaming consoles or streaming devices?
Yes, most TV beds have HDMI or AV ports that allow you to connect external devices for gaming, streaming, or other entertainment purposes. You will also find that most modern TV Beds come with BlueTooth as standard.
Are TV beds compatible with different TV sizes?
Always check with the manufacturer. Here at TV Beds Northwest, most of our TV beds are designed to work with a 43” TV.
Can I mount my own TV on a regular bed frame?
As above, please check with the manufacturer. Most modern TV’s are now slim enough to fit in a TV bed but there is only a limited amount of space in the footboard of a bed.
How often should I clean my TV bed?
It's advisable to dust your TV bed regularly and clean it according to the manufacturer's instructions. We wouldn’t recommend cleaning the TV Bed especially, just dust it off when you are tidying your bedroom as part of your regular cleaning routine.
What should I do if none of the troubleshooting steps resolves my TV bed's problem?
If you have exhausted all troubleshooting options, it's best to contact the manufacturer, a professional technician (or us!) for further assistance and guidance.
