Tv will not turn on after lightning storm

My Uncle's tv will not turn on after a lightning storm had passed by a couple of days ago. I believe its the power fuse but when I took it out, it does not look burnt or fried. Is there anything else that oculd be wrong or am I lookin in the right place?

Sanyo DSs31820 dead after lightning storm. Is there a master reset?

A lightning storm will destroy a TV in many cases. I have repaired very few, with this problem. I would certainly find a new TV, if this is the case for sure. Thanks for asking!

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.

check The B+ of your tv. If no b+ Check the input AC voltage. If Ac i/p are ok but no B+ Volt maybe your IC in power supply has problem.

Turned tv off and now will not come back on,no sounds and no picture the fan also does not work

There is a small fuse in the board beside or close to where your power cord goes into your tv. Pull the fuse to see if it needs replaced. It will only cost a couple of books. Mine did this after a lightning storm.

Looks like a lightning bolt when I turn on the TV.

Unfortunately, this is what we call in the industry total meltdown due to merging circuitry. you will have to replace the entire circuit arrangement in this set. the audio ic's are probably the only components that are still operational. this repair will cost quite a bit to be honest. you may be better off purchasing a new set. sorry for the bad news there.

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.
