Follow the voltage into the set, this kind of damage can be hard to find in any other way.

SOURCE: Won't turn on. No click, no power light, nothing.

1. Try a different wall outlet
2. Open the back panel of the TV. Replace the fuse and will resolve the issue.
As you have mentioned that a lighning has struck so there is a possibility that the picture tube may get damaged. If that is the case in that case it will be repaired by your vendor or you can contact Bestbuy for the same. They have the option of sending a technician at your place.

Panasonic Home Theater System ....No power

Likely a power surge hit your house while away. This happens when power turns back on or lightning hits close to your house. If insured, call insurance company about it. You may be covered for replacement or have deductible applied. Small appliances like this are most susceptible to power surge. There is not enough protection designed in.. The best protection is surge module on main breaker panel or buy a protected power strip to protect high value electronics.

Plug power pack into cheap wall timer, and that will operate lights until warranty is resolved with Malibu or product-seller.

Simple power outage, or nearby lightning strike, can cause surge that will knock out digital timers. And knock out analog series power packs too.
You probably need receipt for warranty claim.
This timer is not shown on Intermatic site, and not subject to Intermatic 5-year warranty, but certainly Malibu must have a warranty of unknown length, and a corresponding claim procedure.

Double-check your installation, and additional resources:

Whole-house surge protection is hot item among folks these days since so many household items are now electronic, including appliances, washer-dryer, water heaters, timers, etc.
This will protect both 120Volt and 240Volt circuits, although it is unknown if your timer failed because of surge..

Is your house being hit by lightning? If so, there is nothing you can do.
If not, it could be a spike in the electrical service as well, I think. Try installing a high rated surge protector on the plug end. Some even have a guarantee that if the equipment protected gets damaged, they will pay for repair.

Let me know,

check all your connections to make sure you don't have a short, but most likely it's your amp. If it was the battery it would turn on and off, including radio, then your car wouldn't start(dead battery), but if it does this and your car turns on no problem then it sounds like the amp gave out.

Unplug from the wall and hit the power button on the tv. The light may come on dim then fade out or you hear a click. This means it has built in surge protection. Plug it back into the wall and you should be good to go if nothing burnt up.

It sounds like it may have had a power surge. Was it plugged into a power strip, or straight into the outlet? If it was in the outlet, or if the power strip is old, it may not have been protected and you could have fried some of the internal components. Also, did you have an ethernet cable plugged into it? My Xbox got fried a few years ago because of a power surge through my router. If the internal components are broken, the only reliable place to send it, in my opinion at least, is Microsoft's own repair site.

My panasonic plasma wont turn on after lighting hit what could have fried

The first circuit to be hit is the power supply but depending on the protection built into the unit, it could very well have passed high voltage on to the more delicate (and expensive) small signal circuitry.
The only way to establish the extent of damage on your own is, to replace the power supply assembly and hope that the set then turns on. If it doesn't, then you have gambled and lost.
Supplies are normally a separate board that is fitted with plugs making it possible for a DIY replacement. Supply boards can cost anywhere from ~$90 to $175 US.
If you live in a lightning prone area (as we do), I would highly recommend the installation of a 'whole house' surge arrester. With installation, the cost will be under $300 US and units from Intermatic such as ours come with a 5 year warranty and $10,000 in insurance in case the arrester fails to protect your gear.

Blinking standby light, dead dvd player

Hello illeanaceres,

I'm sorry to hear about the bad news, I had something similar happen to me around a month ago.

Honestly there is not much you can do if it is damaged due to a power surge. Resetting it would be the normal procedure.

Surge protectors only protect equipment up to a certain amount of joules. Basically if the lightning is powerful enough it can damage electronics with that initial surge. You should replace your surge protectors every few years if it is 2-3 years old then it may not be as effective.

Post back if you have anymore questions or comments. Thank you for choosing Fixya!
