no the coding would not change from using the dvd's from overseas. the ones that you say are american may not be american and that is most likley the problem. try putting in a dvd that you have had for a long time that you bought here in the states and if that works then the dvds you say are american are the problem.
The television has problems in the power supply board. The high transient voltages in the spike may have damaged all the board in the unit. This is because of the speed in which it occurs. The Power supply has other safety blow out components in it to stop this damage. If you are lucky the components saved the rest of you television and just blew out the power supply. You will need to have the television tested and see if this is the case. The customer service telephone number is 1-800-631-3811. Give them the model number of you television and ask them for a location of the nearest service center. Call them and ask them how much they charge for estimating repairs for you type of television. They should be able to help you. I hope this information helps you with your problem.
1. Make sure that the cable is not plugged into the mains receptacle.
2. Open up the unit
3. Inspect the board. Look out for a glass fuse rated about 3A/220V near one corner of the board. It is close to the mechanical ON/OFF switch on the TV. The cable normally plugs into a socket made up of two vertical pins an inch or less from the fuse. Sometimes these are marked with a squiggle (~) or two (~~) to signify that the mains power goes there.
4. If the cable terminator (end of the cable opposite the mains plug) was cleanly pulled out, then well and good. In that case simply plug it back in. If not (i.e. the cable is damaged, then you may have to remove the terminator and solder the cable directly to the board.
5. To pre-empt any further "pullings", make a knot on the cable inside the TV where the cable comes out so that there is some resistance to the pull.
The surge most likely shorted the horizontal output transistor, and with that being shorted, it causes the power supply to "sing" from the increased load it is seeing. Unfortunately, it would probably cost near $100 to repair unless you were able to do it yourself.
most tv/vcr combo has only one power supply source which is located in the vcr unit. u have a power supply circuit problem. try to check the rectifier, filter capacitor and the regulator ic/transistor. good luck!
The sound can be called screaming from the power supply,it senses a short and creates a frequency you can hear,the set has a problem and it needs to be repaired,I will check the horizontal out put transistor for a short,sometimes it goes bad without a reason and sometimes the high voltage transformer is also bad and both have to be replaced but first the transistor only if it goes bad again then you replaced the transformer too.Seek assistance from a servicer if you are not too familiar with tv service,it can be dangerous.
