Re: Sharp and a ToshibaTV

First thing to check on both of them if you have the proper equipment would be the regulator IC's if No voltage there check the standby Power supply

We had a near lightning strike and now my tv (sanyo model ht27744)doesn't want to come on.

Lightening may have caused a surge on your power lines to the house and to the outlet the TV was on.
Do other things work on that outlet? If not you tripped a power breaker.If they do work check this.
Unplug the TV for 2 min or more and plug back in.
Try bypassing your surge protector you had it plugged into. It could have died when the lightening struck.
(no surge protector?) Bet you'll buy one for your next TV.
Look for 3000 joules and up rating for a surge protector and insure it has protection for a cable/antenna input too.
If this doesn't work the TV may be fried or internal fuse blown.
Time to take it to a repair shop or depending on it's age (5 years+) it may be time to buy a new TV and surge protector.
Near Lightening strikes can effect appliances from several inputs that could be affected from outside like Power, Cable, Antennas, Phone Lines that come into your house.

One thing to try would be to unplug the set for about 10 seconds or so in case the microcontroller is out of sync and not responding to the power button. As far as lightening damaged sets, it does have a fuse but in my own experience, it rarely blows fast enough to protect the solid state circuits and is probably still good. If it still doesn't work when you plug it back in and assuming the fuse is good, then I would suspect a bad voltage regulator or even shorted transistor if it was on when the lightening struck. There are also possibilities of "swollen" surge damaged electrolytic capacitors that took the brunt of the lightening. Depending on the age and condition of the set, it may not be worth repair.

Sony KV-27S42 no sound and audio blinks four times

+13 & -13 requires for Vertical Deflection IC and produced by Flyback Transformer, these volts will be produced IF Horizontal deflection circuit works properly. so try to check H-Out Transistor and its necessary volts / signal. Pls also mention correct Model Number to provide you more help.

Sanyo HT27547 tv - lightening came in on coax line

Ther is probably a fuse and a diode that got hit by the lighting. If you want to try to fix it yourself unplug it check the fuse and change it if it is bad. Then turn it on again. If it blows that fuse then a diode is also out.

Trouble in sharp t.v.

Good day.
Try to check if the fuse of your tv is busted. Also, try to look for any burnt parts.

No picture or sound

You probably have one or two diodes bad which would have to be unsoldered to replace. Since it is a small TV, it may not be worthwhile to take it to a repair shop -- if you can find a good electronics tech with soldering equipment and a multimeter, have them check out D951 a 12 volt zener diode near the power relay. If good, then I would check out D941 and D942 in the power supply. If all three diodes are bad, the set probably took a power surge or lightening strike and could have other shorted components as well.

Possible lightening strike

Lightning will create a lot more damage,the vertical circuit has become defective,the repair should not be expensive better be safe and call a qualified technician.
