Run a video signal into one of your "video in" inputs like from a dvd player or vcr. If you get a picture then your tuner is bad. This happens all the time where I live...lots of lightning\power lines knocked down by falling trees that will cause power surges on the ac line. Your probem came through the cable\antenna line. Yes, it is cost effective to repair your set if it is expensive to replace. Tuners cost $20 to $75 or thereabout. Good Luck!

    Hello again! Forgot to say a few things....Does your screen light up??? Will the menu display on the screen??? If your menu does not display on your screen then the high voltage section of you set is most likely at fault. I still think the tuner is at fault because if a power surge comes through your ac line (or wall outlet) then the power supply in your set would surely have been taken out and the set would not power up in the first place.

Try first unplugging power cable for 10 minutes.

    Try first unplugging the cable, this will drain power completely and reset TV eeproms and circuits.

    If it does not work, try living unplugged for a longer time, for example leave it overnight.

    If the unit does not restart normally after this simple reset, that means that some of the components inside had been damaged.

    Any other possible solution at this point, involves taking apart the TV, testing internal components and replacing the defective part.

    Unless you are an experienced electrronic repairer, it is better to call a technician. If the solution above does not work, you can use the number listed on the owner manual to get repair support.

Wont turn on but tries too come on,power light blinkink


Internal power supply failure. Was there a lightning storm in your area recently or utility work being done recently? This two things usually kill TV's and other electronics with surges when power is restored. If the set is under warranty call the manufacture, if not, call you homeowners insurance agent to see if the damage is covered w/or w.o. deductible. At least you can get something toward repair/replacement costs. Future fix, purchase and install a surge arrestor in your main AC panel for the whole house or buy a power strip with a built in surge filter/protector for your expensive equipment.

After an electrical storm the vcr combo do not come on


johngreen,


Unfortunately this is a worst case scenario. Electrical storms with electrical surges can wreak havoc on all electrical devices if they are not protected with a surge protector. The bad thing is it will cost to more money to have the board replaced as opposed to buying another unit. In the future it is best to invest in a surge protector and protect all your electronic devices. Thanks for visiting FixYa.com.

Had a lightning storm,now brand new aircon wont restart,remote is ok


The electrical storm may have caused a power surge and burned out the circuit board. Especially, if the power went out briefly and then came right back on. Most manufacturers recommend turning the unit OFF during a power outage/electrical storm.

Hope this helps you.

Computer power won't turn on


First thing to do is try to plug the pc in another wall socket to see if it goes on, If not, the MB could have gotten fried, even though the other plugs seem to work. Hopfully you just need another surge protector as that could have gotten damaged.
