Re: Won't Power-On

Do you have a VOM meter? Unplug the set and open the back, the fuse should be easy to find "small glass cylinder with a metel cap on each end. Test it for continuity. If it tests good or shorts again after replaceing then there is a lot of other things that can be wrong. Let us know. If you replace it it is important to use the same exact value which should be written on the board next to it also NEVER jump it with a wire! Hope this helps. Don

After a lightning storm, my TV will not turn on. Is there a fuse or something on the in coming power that may have blown causing it not to turn on?

Any TV subjected to a power surge will have problems. If you can remove the back cover, do so. Locate the glass fuse. In the best situations the fuse is clear and opened, and replacement will repair your TV. In worst cases the fuse may be blackened, and you will see that many components are burned and shattered. If this latter is true, only replacing the TV is your best bet. In many cases electronics may be connected to surge protectors, but lightning will over ride these devices and cause damage. I have seen this happen many times.Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

I had a power outage a couple nights ago, which has caused my television to not turn on. It is a Toshiba model CZ27T31, which was off & plugged into a surge protector at the time the storm knocked the...

Please check if your surge protector is working properly now. There is possibility that the surge protector is blown off due to high voltage surge. Check if your surge protector has a reset switch which some of the surge protectors have. If the problem still persists then you have to call the technician to replace the safety fuse which is inside the TV. The cost will not be much. I will personally recommend that you change your TV as it has outlived its life being 10 yrs old.

We had a near lightning strike and now my tv (sanyo model ht27744)doesn't want to come on.

Lightening may have caused a surge on your power lines to the house and to the outlet the TV was on.
Do other things work on that outlet? If not you tripped a power breaker.If they do work check this.
Unplug the TV for 2 min or more and plug back in.
Try bypassing your surge protector you had it plugged into. It could have died when the lightening struck.
(no surge protector?) Bet you'll buy one for your next TV.
Look for 3000 joules and up rating for a surge protector and insure it has protection for a cable/antenna input too.
If this doesn't work the TV may be fried or internal fuse blown.
Time to take it to a repair shop or depending on it's age (5 years+) it may be time to buy a new TV and surge protector.
Near Lightening strikes can effect appliances from several inputs that could be affected from outside like Power, Cable, Antennas, Phone Lines that come into your house.

Tv won't come on

Does the outlet still work? The storm may have tripped the circuit breaker for that outlet only.
Another option is there was a surge of power and you weren't using a surge protector. That can overload a capacitor and you will need to get a technician to fix it
