Re: Sanyo 21" t.v. will not power

I would check store and see if will take back, my not want to say it was storm. Just don't know first. If will not take back or exchange then open and look for open fuse, or open resistor in Power Supply.

Sanyo AVM-3651G fuse box?

Should be on the board near where the power cord connects. It should be a fuse with pigtails that is soldered to the board. If you had a true lightning strike then the power diodes are probably shot ad well and more than likely the power transistor.

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!

Power hits are very difficult to recover from primarily because odd things can happen. Usually the standby transformer or power supply takes the largest hit. With no symptoms to go on, it is difficult to provide a diagnosis remotely. If you have any electronics experience, start by looking for the standby 5V inside the set. If that does not exist, start with getting that portion to work. After that, hopefully the set will attempt to start and we can continue from there.

2 TV's won't work in 5 months


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.
