How to Identify Genuine Electronic Parts
- Genuine electronic parts come with a guarantee or money back warrantee. This implies that the manufacturers of the said parts are assuring you that the parts have been tried, tested and proven to be efficient and are therefore ready to take back and replace any that malfunctions, replace it with a new one or refund you. As a consumer you must bear in mind the refund and return policy, the term of the warranty period, who to contact to claim you warranty, parts and repair problems covered by the warranty and whether it covers consequential damages.
- Genuine electronic parts dealers offer after sale services. The dealers of the electronic parts should be able to offer services such as transportation and installing as an assurance that their parts are genuine. You should also be able to contact them later for any clarifications as well as complaint.
- Genuine electronic parts do not alter the normal functioning of the appliance, rather they should give the same impression as originally was. For instance, a TV electronic replacement should be tested on the picture, sound and color quality in comparison to the original part. Any electronic part that alters the functioning of the appliance for the worse is not good.
- Watch out for heating effects. Most electronic appliances get damaged due to over heating. You should in turn be watchful of the heating tendencies of your appliance before and after replacing any of its parts. Any electronic part that tends to increase the heating effect on your appliance is most probably not genuine and should be removed before it damages your appliance.
