Rainbow colors after a lightning storm

I have a Samsung 27 inch HD TV. It is about a year and half old. My power temporarily went out during a lightning storm and my TV was on. When I turned it back on it had rainbow colors all over the screen. I have unplugged it for an hour or two and kept it turned off for a day. Neither has helped fix the problem. Is there anything else that I can do?

Re: Rainbow colors after a lightning storm

You need to borrow or rent from a repair shop a degaussing coil. Its a big coil of wire that plugs in and has a switch on it. How you use it? With the coil plugged in,but not switched on ,hold the coil in front center , about two inches fron the picture tube. Now switch on the coil and slowly rotate the coil in a circle all the way around the picture tube and at the same time pulling slowy away fron the front of the picture tube. Keep doing the circular motion till you reach about three feet from the front of the tube, turn the coil sideways fron the tube and quickly shut off the coil. This is done with the tv set on. The set should look clear now ,with no color blotches on the corners or the rest of the picture. If it dosent then the pictre tube is bad. If it does look good, shut off the tv set for a hour or so , turn back on the tv set, Is the colors back on the screen. Yes , then ther thermistor or degaussing circuit needs to be serviced, and this is something you will need to call in a tech to service for you cause theres extremly high voltage inside these sets and not for a handi-person to tinker with. But if its good then your all set. Good Luck

Nice big screen but CRTs are getting old So, if you can't set correct colors with your Hyundai it might have some serious issue with tube. Probably replacement might cost you more then a new new 27" Flat Panel. See some tutorial and info about bad color of CRT

My tv went dead during a lightning storm. I heard

The sound could have come from one of your power capacitors. You could tell if one of them is no longer operational by looking at them; they will be burned, or blistered, or will be bulging. If this is a CRT type of TV ensure that you only look inside if you are fully aware of how to deal with the lethal voltages that are stored on the inside of the unit.

A month ago our house was struck by lightning and The Insurance company wants to know what the price of the Television. Or what it is worth today. He purcheased the TV about 4or5 years ago. the tv was...

$150 usd- $177usd. SEE HERE

Quote from the link...
" My Bottom Line

Considering the price, I am pleased as punch with this purchase. Expecting to receive only basic features, the Orion shouldn't disappoint. Audio buffs should look elsewhere, but at a purchase price of approximately $150 for a 27" TV, one isn't looking to the STV2763A as a high tech set. I'm sure I'm forgetting certain specs here, but this my low tech review of a low tech set. I'm happy with the Orion, a nice balance of value and price."

Amount Paid (US$): 177.00

Since it is 4-5 years old look to get less than half from the insurance co.

Loss of color after lightning storm

In tradition televisions, each color has its own gun, convergence and control circuit. One or more of these are most likely bad. Repairs on standard CRT TVs nowadays are usually cost prohibitive.

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.
