Question about Sanyo DS32830H 32" TV
Lightning struck a tree 60 yds from the house. Several other items were toast. Possibly a voltage surge, maybe up through the ground, because the lights flickered on for a second. Usually, when you power on, a relay goes "thunk" inside and then the set comes on. Now nothing. When I pull the plug for a while, and re-plug it in, a tiny spark at the prongs shows current is going to the power supply, not to a blown fuse in the power supply. I took the back off carefully, and blew it off, then checked the barrel type fuse where the power cord is attached. It was good. I have a voltmeter, and can identify some basic things on the board. A technician said it's probably the power supply (duh) but I can't tell if it is mixed in with all the rest on the board, or separate and hid in with the buttons on the case. I'm willing to solder in a new transformer or capacitor if I can isolate the problem. It's only 2 years old, and I really want to keep it, but a service guy costs as much as new set. Please help!
With a lightning strick any thing can go. check diodes, dc fuse regulator and while U are at it check the horzontal output transistor
