Troubleshooting Your Television

A few years ago, we invested in a really nice flat screen television for our living room. Because we had spent a lot of money, I was surprised when it started flickering suddenly one day. After it flickered for awhile, it completely shut down, and I didn't know what to do. Since the device wasn't under warranty, I thought that we were going to have to replace the entire thing. Fortunately, a friend of mine told me about a great electronics repair center that could help. They inspected my television, told me what was wrong, and let me decide how I wanted it to be fixed. This blog is all about repairing your electronics instead of tossing them in the trash.

Four Fun Ways To Brighten Your Child's World With LED Strip Lights

LED strip lighting is just an unbelievably cool innovation - literally. They're cool to the touch, come in a rainbow of colors and emit a glow that is similar to natural lighting (unlike the harsh light of fluorescent bulbs), and are useful for commercial and residential lighting. They're also fun. Learn 5 fun ways you can use LED lights to brighten your child's world.

1.) Light Up A Rainy Day

Attach flexible LED strips to each spoke of your child's umbrella and create a swirling light show on an otherwise dismal day. 

Aside from just looking pretty, the soft lights will make it easier for your child to see where he or she is walking. Better still, if your child is near a road, drivers will be able to see him or her.

2.) Use Them As Night Lights

Put rigid LED strips along the top of the walls in your child's room. Use one or more colors. The LED lights can stay on when the regular lights are turned off for the night, to give your son or daughter a little extra security at night.

Research has shown that the humming of regular lighting contributes to attention deficits and fatigue. By keeping harsh lighting off at night and using the LED lights instead, you won't be interfering with your child's natural sleep patterns. 

3.) Put Them Behind The Curtains In Your Child's Room

Buy strands of flexible LED lights in different colors and hang them down from the curtain rods in your older child's bedroom. Because the LED lights stay cool, they can hang against the fabric without heating them up.

The LED lights look magical, and have the quirky feel of beaded curtains. This sort of decor is perfect for a little princess or a teen who likes the eclectic look the lights create.

4.) Turn Your Child's Bed Into A Space Ship

Does your son or daughter like to pretend? Put strips of LED lights around the legs and base of the bed in colored rows, like a spaceship. Add more lights vertically in rows around the room, so that your child can pretend that that he or she is a universal traveler. 

LED light is becoming a regular mainstay in residential decor, but because it's so versatile and affordable, you can use it to create everything from temporary party decor to light-up clothing. Make flexible and rigid rows of LED lights part of your toolbox whenever you feel the creative urge.
