Question about Projection Televisions

2 Answers

My polaroid46" HD widescreen lcd Television may have been affected and or damaged by a recent (9-9) thunder and lightning storm. I can't get it to turn on-when I hit the on-off button with the DISH TV remote the blue light in the lower right hand corner comes on for a few seconds, then a red light comes on for a second and then the blue light returns; this repeats for ever. Is there a fuse in the television that can be replaced or is there a re-set button that I haven't been able to find? The DISH receiver seems to be fine. Please advise. Thank-you!

    Hi Everyone,
    When my TV was hit by a thunder storm, several components of the power circuit board were burned out. I discovered that there is a Buss type fuse (small glass tube w/ wire-like element attached to metal caps on each end) which, if burnt wire-like element is gone. It can easily be pryed out & replaced w/ same type from radio shack. If that doesn't work then most likely, like mine, components of the power board are fried.

During a storm, my tv was plugged into an outlet and it was working fine and in a minute, it turned off by itself. Now the tv does not work. There is no sound, no picture. The only thing thats still on is...


It got hit by lightning I believe. I hope you have insurance. It will most likely be in the power supply board. My recommendation is if you have cost replacement insurance is to get a new one. Once a tv get hits by lightning it is hard telling what other damage may be lurking.

Hi, After a recent severe lightenung storm my Samsung DVD player is not working. When turned on it read CD/DVD Protection and shuts off. Will not open/close or stay on. Tina


Hello.. Since the problem ocurred after a lightning storm then there is a good chance that your dvd player experienced a power surge from the power line and may be seriously damaged. Try unplugging the unit fromn the wall plug and let it staythat way for 10-20 minutes then plug it in again.. if it continues to malfunction then it is probably junk.. The power down/power up reset sometimes clears malfunctions like this but not always... and especially not if a component inside it is damaged.. Good Luck..

Tv turns on and then off


Good Day, ruschracing;

Storm? The first thing you should do is unplug the TV from the wall for 3 to 6 minutes (reset), then plug back into wall.

If that does not help, then you should call an authorized service center to give you an estimate for the repairs. OR call your home owners insurance company.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

We had a bad storm last night while we were asleep and now this morning the HDMI source on our Olevia 537H LCD tv doesn't work.


this is very common if you dont have a power surge protector on your cable line or wall outlet. the lightining travel through the line and most likely damaged the hdmi board.check first go to menu and check if settings are correct.

things to do:

1. unplug and plug back in 5 minutes might reset
2. see if you have warr or home insurance to cover repair
3.call local tv repair shop to come over and look at ask about estimate on phone.

Thanks doctor video

No power after Lightning Storm


If you have homeowners insurance and can file a claim on it, perhaps your insurance adjuster knows of a shop that could handle this problem. Most likely you will be needing the power board replaced, p/n 8667200700T unless it can be repaired. The schematic for this set is not listed as an available part for this set (In the future it would be very wise to stay away from any manufacturer that does not support what they make). After restoring power to the set, you could find that there are other problems such as a defective tuner or audio/video problems due to the power surge. It may be possible to fix the power supply without a schematic if that is the only part that has been damaged.
