Question about Apex Digital GB43HD09 43" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

No power after Lightning Storm

I am wondering what I can check myself on a TV that did not survive our last thunderstorm. TV was on during the storm when the lights went off, and did not return when they came back on. The serge took out the TV and the DirecTV box, but did not affect any other television or DirecTV box in the house (they were not on, but plugged in). I do not have an authorized Apex service center anywhere near me and I understand parts and schematics are difficult to obtain. Any help would be appreciated.

If you have homeowners insurance and can file a claim on it, perhaps your insurance adjuster knows of a shop that could handle this problem. Most likely you will be needing the power board replaced, p/n 8667200700T unless it can be repaired. The schematic for this set is not listed as an available part for this set (In the future it would be very wise to stay away from any manufacturer that does not support what they make). After restoring power to the set, you could find that there are other problems such as a defective tuner or audio/video problems due to the power surge. It may be possible to fix the power supply without a schematic if that is the only part that has been damaged.

Stopped working after a storm


Did you have a power surge after a loss of power? If so your TV is ruined from the surge. In the future use a surge protector if don't already.

Polaroid TLA-01511C stopped working after electrical storm. Will try to change fuse, if I can get to it. How do I access the fuse? NOT equipped mentally or with tools to do more.


Contact any service technician. The fuse can be located at itw main power regulator board inside. If the power supply regulator board is found faulty, it will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and precious time.

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!

Lightning Storm/Affinity Washer


During a lightning storm, a lightning strike could have induced a high voltage surge in your incoming power lines. Left unprotected from these power surges, the weakest link ( normally low voltage electronic controls) are the most susceptable. Just because you had power available at the wall receptacle after a storm doesn't mean that your washer control system wasn't exposed to one of these surges and got damaged. On the contrary, it is extremely likely that the washer took a 'hit' and was damaged.Other devices plugged into the same receptacle may have survived that hit because electricity travels the path of least resistance.. In this case.. that path may have been thru your washer.. My point being is that your washer could have sustained a power surge and was damaged so don't rule that out. Of course, that surge could have taken an internal fuse or other component out too..

Blinking light wont turn on Toshiba TV CE19H15


Yes, it's quite possible that you indeed may have sufferd from a Power Spike, induced by lightning during the storm, esspecially if plugged in during said storm. I have had quite a few customers ova the years with this exact problem. I always advise my clients to unplug ALL devices during a storm, and for ones that simply cannot be unplugged then some sort of Spike/Surge Protection device MUST be used. As a matter of interest, I have written many a report to insurance companies to support a claim for a replacement.
