My tv went dead during a lightning storm. I heard


The sound could have come from one of your power capacitors. You could tell if one of them is no longer operational by looking at them; they will be burned, or blistered, or will be bulging. If this is a CRT type of TV ensure that you only look inside if you are fully aware of how to deal with the lethal voltages that are stored on the inside of the unit.

2 TV's won't work in 5 months


Hi,

Some problems similar to yours might be brought about by severe thunder storms or near lightning strikes which passes through the cable connection and/or the AC mains.

You may need to contact your cable provider and have them checked the feeder line and/or install an arrester.

Additionally, it may be to your added protection to unplug the units when not in use.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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.

TV will not turn on


Should unplug the unit from the outlet first then after 5 minutes plug it back in,if this does not work it most likely needs service specially if you lost complete power in the house or if it was raining with lightning.
