Unplug the set and a box if used for a while and plug back for units to reboot.

SOURCE: HDMI ports do not work after lightning storm

Probably not, but your insurance should pay if you have a renter or homeowner policy.

SOURCE: lightning storm and all hdmi connections stopped working

It may be a problem with the DVRs. You can rule that out by connecting a different HDMI TV to one of the DVRs.

SOURCE: HDMI inputs are not working

As crcelect suggests you can run the TV on RCA. You should also be able to use coax directly from your cable box. If you don't have cable you can use an rf converter to connect coax.
I have exactly the same problem with my Panasonic TH-42PX75U. I've been told that I may need to run a setup on my cable box to fix the problem. If I find a solution I'll provide details in a future post.

Panasonic tv hdmi inputs not working


It appears that during the storm there may have been an electrical surge that damaged the electronics of your tv. If the tuner is working fine then the affected area (board) is the one that has the HDMI input sources.

Hdmi inputs dont work after lightening storm


Did you disconnect from power the units connected to the inputs? I would guess either the set or something hooked to those inputs got a static hit.

Only one (out of four total) HDMI input is working on my set.


The HDMI switcher IC chips in TVs can be damaged but lighting hits near you house even if the power is protected with a surge protector. The damaging power comes in through the HDMI port and blows the chip out and it can affect just one port or multiple HDMI ports. Your best bet would be to just get a cheap HDMI switcher and use the one working port. The repair on the TV would require placing the control board and would run from $75-150 for parts plus the labor to install it.

Panasonic Plasma TH-42PZ80U HDMI do not work after lightning storm


I don't have a solution, unfortunately, but your problem is nearly identical to mine. It even seems to have happened on the same date (7/27/12)! Do you live near Dener by chance? Anyway, we have Direct Tv, and ended up with 2 fried HD DVR boxes and 2 TVs on which the HDMI connections don't work after lightning hit close to our house on 7/27. Those boxes were replaced, as was part of the Direct TV dish. The only difference is, whereas on one TV component connections (red/white/yellow cables) allowed the TV to work normally, on the other (my 50 inch Panasonic Plasma TCP50S30) even the red/white/yellow cables did not work. Now I'm scouting the net for tips on what else to try before I possibly have the Panasonic looked at, which I am hedging on doing since I got it for only $600 new in the first place. Have you found out anything else since you posted this? Good luck to you...

HDMI no longer output after lightning storm. ps3 still has all the data and can still output in composite. tried resetting and reboot and still not working


I would try another device that uses HDMI output and plug it into that HDMI tv input to ensure that it is not your tv that is at fault. If the TV is fine, more than likely something in your PS3 got fried. This is actually a common issue with the PS3 as you can see here:

http://www.ps3chat.com/playstation-3-hardware/7353-lightning-storm-ps3-hdmi-stopped-working.html

If your tv is fine you will more than likely have to call up Sony for a repair or a replacement. Lightning can do damage to any electronic device from up to miles away. EMF damage is a nasty thing. It used to wreak all kinds of havoc for the wireless internet company I used to work for.

I hope this helps! If it does, please give it a thumbs up!

HDMI inputs don't work. The TV was working perfectly and then we lost the picture. The component inputs work fine and a new HDMI cable didn't fix the issue. Had the same problem 2 years ago and they...


No, but the HDMI interface is very sensitive to static discharge - has been a storm nearby? To prevent this from happening again i usually install to all my customers cheap splitters just before the tv, they will fry before the tv protecting it.
I'm sorry but it's time to change that board again.
