HELP! I think my TV got zapped and is ruined from storm!


Check whether the power outlet has power. If it has, I suggest please do not attempt to switch on the TV, unless checked by a qualified service technician.

No POWER UP NO DISPLAY AFTER A STORM


you must have had a power spike during the storm, I tried to locate this model specs but couldn't,, if you can get into the back where the plug wire leads into the unit,, if there is no visible fuse, you want to look at the circuit board where the plug wire attaches to it, near that point there will be a diode thats blown, it will be easy to locate it should have pretty much exploded. if your knowledgeable with soldering you can purchase another directional diode and replace the burned one, if not, have a shop do it,,

Thunderstorm can zap electronic parts, you may need to repair and replace some internal parts. Or replace your box with a new one.

I am getting an error code C0500 after changing the toner. What do I need to do to get the printer back online?


Depends on the model of you Konica Minolta. The CO500 is usually related to fusing temp. It's possible that a power spike or a thunder storm that knocked out power to the building would caused this.

My television quit working after a storm, it wasn't even turned on during the storm. the power on the set and remote does nothing. but it makes a sound when plugged in like it is turning on then nothing...


Ok, this was a direct hit in this case and you will defiantly need to replace the power supply board in this unit. the first thing that will happen during a direct hit is, the surge will run threw the power cord and travel threw the entire power supply circuitry, frying all circuits. this includes the main mother board as well. I recommend replacing the mother board and power supply board as well. this will restore your set to its original operational value. The mother board is commonly called the main control board.

please rate and god bless:)

Blinking light wont turn on Toshiba TV CE19H15


Yes, it's quite possible that you indeed may have sufferd from a Power Spike, induced by lightning during the storm, esspecially if plugged in during said storm. I have had quite a few customers ova the years with this exact problem. I always advise my clients to unplug ALL devices during a storm, and for ones that simply cannot be unplugged then some sort of Spike/Surge Protection device MUST be used. As a matter of interest, I have written many a report to insurance companies to support a claim for a replacement.
