Lighting ussually does a lot of damage to electronics,if you have homeowners insurance they might cover it and get them totally replace,repairs can be done but can be expensive because of the damaged.Good luck.

They really are not much help, they will likely direct you to a Philips Authorized Repair Shop. Hope you have warranty or some kind of insurance. Damage from a storm does not fall under warranty. Good Luck!

After lightning, my television did not work

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem on dvd with no receiver box connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the Monitor goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic chargesaccumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by themain chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protectioncircuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occurr are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing statebecause of the video cable.

Try moving the video cable, and if the cable is not built in, then also try a replacement cable.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

"zapped" tv (dee7189)

I would need more details on this problem. Does the tv turn on? If so, what do you see on the screen? If you mean by "zapped" that the tv received a lightning strike and does not turn on, it's possible there are several damaged circuit board components. Depending on the severity of the strike, it's possible that just the fuse is blown. I need more details to advise further.

Power went out while tv & Direct TV was on

The garbage on your unused channels are not important, just artifacts from signals not strong enough to produce a picture.
The 'blue screen' on #3 is what many sets use when they sense they are connected (terminated) to 'something' but not receiving any signal.

If sounds a lot like DTV's receiver took a hit.

If you have a second set you can borrow or drag to the receiver, try it first but I don't think it is your problem unless the cable input on it was zapped.

If you state that the contacts of the Mains Plug were 'burnt', I suggest that you once clean them with Emery Paper and try again. Loose contact in the Mains causes the 'burning', and the Plug contacts become carbonised. Could be other reasons also, but just try this first.
