If your not a tech I would advise you to call a pro to assist you with this repair as theres no place inside a TV set for a do-it yourselfer. If your a tech first thing on this set to test would be the input(AC)power Supply for blown current limiter resistor. Next would be to check out the DC supplys in the main power supply as well as the sweep power supply.Good Luck

Panasonic tv hdmi inputs not working

It appears that during the storm there may have been an electrical surge that damaged the electronics of your tv. If the tuner is working fine then the affected area (board) is the one that has the HDMI input sources.

Why isn my memorex mks8506 turning on?

Try unplugging from power then hold power button for about 30 seconds or more, plug back in and try it. Have several computers on my work network that do the same thing and that's how we get them to start up again.

My Acer Aspire M1201 won't turn on.

More than likely your power supply got fried from a power surge during that storm anyway. You'd be surprised at how worthless most surge suppressors are these days.

Power supply or fuse is shot most likely. You can use a voltmeter and test power coming from power supply to main board. Some units use a high voltage transformer instead of a power supply. You can get parts at

We have a 19'' Magnavox T.V. its about 4 yrs old and it was working great up until yesterday. Went to turn it on and nothing, no sound,picture nothing! There was a bad storm the night before last and we...

well 4 year Tv's are just that now and unless its Digital it may not be worth the money to repair. Lightning spikes have killed off the ppwer supply box inside. The cost of replacement is $100-$150 ( if you can get one for this model) + 2 hrs minimum fitting at $90 hour. + your transport of this to a repairer.So it may be time to see that your next and new TV is connected to an anti spike power board and when not in use or a storm is imminent unplug it anyway

Power outage / TV won't come on.

Call the manufacture tech support and ask them for their rep in your area. If it is possible for them to reset your TV I am sure that they will.

From your description, most of the time there is damage to the power supply, or one of the areas in the set.
