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

What is the likely culprit to troubleshoot on a tv that will not power on and there is no standby light after a lightening strike in the area and fried Directv recievers and tvs?


Hi , it sounds as if the av board is probably fried but it probably did not stop there it may not be worth getting it checked out as that's just another bill to tell you its not worth repairing. Take time to think about it. But get it checked if you wish there is a lot of power in a lightning strike. It could fry one board and pass through the next as they are usually connected.

I have a sharp lcd 32 inch it stopped working, it won't turn on.


Try to check the main line and if its ok proceed to the power chord then to transformer or the fuse and you look it they are fine look for a technician to check your tv.Choose a better technician near from your place.

My dynex tv wont turn on! the strom knocked out our power, now the power is back on the tv wont turn on from remote or tv power button.


Lightning is a weird beast, and can do strange things to a TV. Sounds like the set took a hit. If there is a fuse then check it on a volt-ohm meter for continuity while it is out of the circuit, and if it is an open circuit, replace it. If there is a circuit breaker, then reset it. If these don't work, look for obvious scorching on the circuit board (assuming you know how to avoid electricution, otherwise do not touch). Lightening can literally jump around on a circuit board, so there is no way to know what part of the set was effected by the strike - the lightening will not always burn out the first circuit it touches, but will burn out something further into the circuit. The most obvious place to look is around the transformer and rectifier circuits. If a capacitor was hit, it may be swolen or discolored; resistors will scorch, and the worst thing is that transistors and IC's often show no damage - in fact, any part might be burned out and not show visible signs. If nothing is obvious (like scorch marks) and the fusing is intact, there are too many possibilities to begin listing them all. The fact that it won't turn on at all sounds like it is probably a power circuit, but, not necessarily. FYI turning a set off during a lightning storm does not protect it, you have to unplug the AC power cord and the line that feeds the signal into the set. Even circuit protection devices (lightning arrestors) may not protect against a close strike. Maybe the techs at Best Buy can supply more suggestions (Dynex is their brand).

Bad storm, lightening strike outside then TV went off and will not come back on.


I would start with your power supply. If you took a surge it is possible that you only blew a fuse. If it is a blown fuse, make sure you only use the same type fuse.

My television is deadset because of tunderstorm


If there was a lightening strike on the power line or in the cable feed or the antennae then You must be really lucky if the set has onley a case of simple damage like the fuse or power section Sm driver, rectifier.
It is important to take a look inside to see if the boards are fried, if you see many lines burnt on the PCB then I am afraid it is going to be bad.
Hope you check the first part.Hope I could help. Good Day

I have a Toshiba 46H84. We had a lightening storm one night and the next morning the satellite dish and TV were turned off. DVD player was not and worked fine. The satellite dish needed to be reset, but...


Yes, all sets are protected by a fuse where the power cord enters.

Start at the beginning--unplug the set and look for the glass fuse--should be a 5 amp or greater. It will be in a plug in holder. If you are lucky the strike or power outage got it.

Do this with the set unplugged.

Let me know what you find---I am here to help.

Total loss of power to the set indicates either the ac fuse is blown or the the power supply is damaged.

Unless a tech actually opened the set and looked at it he is just throwing darts at the board.

I am here to help--if my suggestion informed you rate this solution as "very helpful" as I do this here for free.

REGARDS, SD TECH

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.

Altec Lansing ACS45.2-Lightning strike


There is a good chance with a lightening strike that damaged so much of your equipment that this device was also affected. power to the device doesn't necessarily mean that other components were not damaged.... you can elimanate speaker damage by hooking the speakers up to another device to check them.
