Re: plasma tv

Check the cable line thats attached to the bad set on another set side by side. If the other set still has no channels your going to need to trouble shoot or replace the tuner control bad and the tuner assy.

During a lightning storm my TV went off and won't come back on.

It's called a "power surge," and the only way you can prevent a power surge from destroying a television completely is to use a SURGE SUPPRESSOR, and make sure that the grounding for your electrical system is optimal (meaning at least THREE TRUE GROUND POINTS, usually GROUNDING ROD, GROUND MESH, and PLUMBING GROUND). Consult a qualified electrician.
Sorry for your loss!

If you look at the power supply board as shown in the picture:

There is a main fuse on the top left of the board covered by black shrink tubing, SLO-BLO 4A 250V. Check it out to see if it is blown.

Hi there! If you have a decoder and this was plugged in on the panel it may have damaged the input board. Alternatively have the decoder checked first or try another TV on the same decoder. Lightning can hit the dish and run down through the line into the decoder and/or into the TV. Best Wishes and Good Luck, JUS004

Killed by lightning, have power, no picture...

The warranty does not cover lightning, check if your insurance covers it.
A lightning strike on such panel ( HDMI ) is very difficult to repair and if not impossible.The HDMI connector is hooked to the ground of the TV set so everything could be damaged.
My advice is not to repair.

Screen froze during lightning storm. no picture now. When powering on screen lights and then dims - no picture, no sound

You might have had a power surge.Try unplugging your TV for 5 minutes and plugging it back in. If you cannot get a picture from any device such as a DVD player and cable then your TV needs serviced call a repair man. Good Luck!
