Electronic scoreboards are an essential part of many sports facilities, both professional and amateur. They keep track of the score, time remaining in the game, down and distance on the field, and other important information that must be communicated quickly to spectators.
Some people may think scoreboard repair and maintenance is expensive because it requires skilled workers who have experience installing and repairing them. For instance, repairs may require a certified electrician to fix your scoreboard if it fails due to electrical problems.
These services are not cheap, but they are far more affordable than replacing your scoreboard entirely. This is why it’s important to choose a company with qualified technicians when choosing who will repair or install your electronic scoreboard. The right company can actually help you save money in the long run.
Signs Your Scoreboard Needs Repair
If you have a scoreboard mounted inside, common signs that you might need repair or maintenance include:
- Lights and sensors that flicker or seem dim
- Frayed wires
- Occasional flashes or surges
- Buttons and switches that fail to respond properly
- Fading colors or designs
- Failure to turn on or off promptly
Exterior scoreboards, like those used for football fields, will have many of these same telltale signs when they need repair. However, because outdoor scoreboards are exposed to the elements, you might also notice excessive wear on the display from wind, rain, or hail.
If your scoreboard has special features, like the ability to play music or change colors, sluggish response times, or poor performance can help you to know it’s time to call for repairs.
When you notice a problem with your scoreboard, it’s important to address it right away. In many cases, it’s much more cost-effective to take care of a repair when it’s still relatively minor. A professional repair service can diagnose the problem and help you understand your options for repair, replacement, or an upgrade.
