I have a 58'' HP Pavillion Projection screen TV. It was struck by lightning. the power cord is good. It will not turn on at all, no fans running, etc. What do you think I will have to fix?

As u have just said that it was struck by lightning the only way to get the TV back working is to replace burnt items on the moterboard .becouse lightning must have demaged some components on the power supply, if possible i would preffer a new power supply board

Tv struck by lightning

You wont be able to fix the TV your self as the power circuit board may have blown - consult a qualified repair man. Buying a surge protector for your expensive electronic goods is highly recommended.

Someone please help

Good Day;

Two things normally happens after a L storm:1.) One must unplug TV for 5 minutes, then plug back in. 2.) Main glass fuse out, will be near a/c cord. 3.( Power regulator IC may be out. Try these first.

Good Luck!

Lightning damage could be all or nothing, It's very hard to tell without checks all around the boards. I think your best bet is to check with homeowners and see if they will pay for lightning damage and if they say take it to a tech to fix and they will pay, go that way. But If you want to DIY, then the best thing is to call PTS 18008447871 and price a Deflection module. This is more than likely the area, but still not 100% sure. But it has the HV area on it. This will still be around 200-300 and it most likely will fix the problem. Hope this helps!
