What your describing is symptoms of a power surge, Many LCD Tv's are sensative to Slight fluctuation in power during rain, thunder and lightning storms, i myself was happily watching Tv through such a storm at one time, and when i went to bed the TV would not respond remotely or manually, i also disconnected the power from the wall waited for the ready light to disolve and try to turn on, unfortunatley the damage was done, a Tv Repair was nessecary and since then i now use a belkin power surge protector board for my TV and appliances......one question to you is i would guarantee you do not use a surge protection my friend......and your set will need a Tv Repair, it is not major as what is neccesary is a firmware dump on the internal memory and replace the BIOS Battery as well.

My tv was hit by lightning is it fixable


When tvs are struck by lightning most of them are beyond repairs and if successful they always give problems in the future.

Do thunder lightning has any effect to a sony bravia lcd or a panasonic viera lcd tv?


Yes!!! When going out for extended periods of time unplug TV's from a/c outlet AND dissconnect broadcast signal from TV(cable,sat. etc)
Isolation is the only sure protection against LIGHTNING DAMAGE!!!
I advise purchasing protection from your' service provider.

During a storm, my tv was plugged into an outlet and it was working fine and in a minute, it turned off by itself. Now the tv does not work. There is no sound, no picture. The only thing thats still on is...


It got hit by lightning I believe. I hope you have insurance. It will most likely be in the power supply board. My recommendation is if you have cost replacement insurance is to get a new one. Once a tv get hits by lightning it is hard telling what other damage may be lurking.

Black out tv after thunder rain


Is easy for them to say replace the main board,it will cost as much as a new tv or close,they say that because of the damage lighting or power surge causes and is unrepairable,some home owners insurance cover this damages and they just replace the equipment since is not worth repairing.You can call Sony just to see how much they want for a new board.Let Us know if you need any more information.

Its could be a fuse but highly unlikly. A surge will usually blow out the power supply, like short out the rectifiers,or the standby power supply. Its best to let a trained servicer look at the set. Good Luck
