Question about Televison & Video

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.

Please understand, that a lightning will have trillions of volts, when it hit the earth. Do you thing any material or circuit made by a human being can withstand it? All are only mere saying. Not the truth.

Well I think that the console might of had been damaged by lightning thats why when theres a thunder storm you should always unplug your consoles so they won't get hit by lightning I always unplug mine when theres a thunder storm. Well the sound module inside of the console is broken then so you could send it into console solutions then they repair old systems too.

I'm afraid the electronics have been 'spiked' by the lightning. It may have affected more than one module There is little you can do other than having it looked at by a professional, however you may be able to claim on your insurance?

Turn the monitor off.
Unplug it from the AC power.
Reconnect it, turn it on, and see if it returns to "normal".

Lightning Storm/Affinity Washer


During a lightning storm, a lightning strike could have induced a high voltage surge in your incoming power lines. Left unprotected from these power surges, the weakest link ( normally low voltage electronic controls) are the most susceptable. Just because you had power available at the wall receptacle after a storm doesn't mean that your washer control system wasn't exposed to one of these surges and got damaged. On the contrary, it is extremely likely that the washer took a 'hit' and was damaged.Other devices plugged into the same receptacle may have survived that hit because electricity travels the path of least resistance.. In this case.. that path may have been thru your washer.. My point being is that your washer could have sustained a power surge and was damaged so don't rule that out. Of course, that surge could have taken an internal fuse or other component out too..
