Why does the Hisense U6G, U7G and U8G feel hot when touch?
In order to output sound and a picture, your Hisense U6G, U7G or U8G will need to use electricity. Like all electronics, the energy being utilized will generate heat.
Normally, the heat is dissipate from the U6G, U7G or U8G through the vents. If you use your TV for an extended length of time, however, then the heat dissipation system will get a little overwhelmed. As a result, your television set will feel hot when touched.
With that said, feeling hot to touch is completely normal as, according to Hisense, the heat won’t have a negative impact to the functionality and performance of your U6G, U7G or U8G.
Why do your Hisense U6G, U7G and U8G TV make clicking or popping noises?
When you are using your U6G, U7G or U8G, you may hear the TV making a clicking or popping noise. This happens when your television set heats up or cools down, causing the plastic on the television set to expand when heating up or contract when cooling down.
According to Hisense, these noises are perfectly normally and won’t hinder your TV’s functionality or performance.
