Re: TV was struck by lightning

If it was struck by lightning, the surge would completely fry the insides of your TV. Your TV probably won't work anymore and you may have to consider replacing it. Some TVs have accident warranties so something like this could be protected, but if not, you will have to purchase a new one.

Sony trinitron color tv ,model no.kv-G14Q2,70W,SER NO. 2266941.was struck by lightenning and now can not power or ever do any other operation. what can i do to bring it back to normal.

If your set was struck by lightening then God Help! you must be lucky.
A first hand look into the set is important to see the extend of the damage and if you see burned boards then it will be bettter to go for a full replacementt of the board.Check cost and decide.
However if you are lucky you can have basic faults in the power section, fuse, surge protector, rectifier, capacitor or the Sm driver.
If fault in the tuner side and there is damage there is no hope.

yes it can be repaired,mostly tv strucked by lightning are dead set because of the very high voltage that goes to the circuit coming from the lightning.there are voltage protector on the circuit.they are placed on the high voltage section of the circuit example are,pico resistors,glass fuseand varistors..yuo need to check them out..

Lighting struck the apartment about a week ago, tv was plugged in when lighting struck apartment. Tv does not turn on anymore.

Best to take it to a repair centre as lightning damage can cause either minor fault such as an internal fuse blown or major problems that would make it uneconomical to repair. Ask for an estimate for the cost to repair.

Sanyo 25" TV struck by lightning - where do I begin?

Not to different from arcade, If the fuse is blowing right away check the bridge rectifiers next for shorts and anything on the primary ac to dc side first, Caps,may have a surge suppressor on the ac side. If it was lightning sure you will find it in this area. Secondary supply shorts usualy do not blow fuses, Just cause the supply to shutdown.

TV won't turn on

It may be too late for this advice, but if you live in a lightning prone area, you should consider having a 'whole house surge protector' installed.
The cost should be well under $300 (a lot less if you install it) and with the included insurance (most often for $25,000) it is a good investment.

If your house was struck, I'm surprised you don't have a list of things that no longer work.
It could just be an expired TV.

Lightning Strike?

Assuming this line is across the screen horizontally (side to side), this means the vertical deflection circuitry is dead. In late model sets, there is a Integrated circuit package which drives the vertical yoke coils. Possible defects: the I.C. itself, bad solder connections where it solders to the board, missing voltage source to this I.C. (often around +24 volts), or a bad electrolytic capacitor in the associated circuitry. This latter often results in a non-linear picture, or less than full deflection condition, rather than a thin line only. It is possible lightning caused this problem, (I've seen some rather illogical damage from lightning ) perhaps it produced enough of a surge to pop the I.C. or a fusible resistor in that voltage source noted above.

TV Doesn't Work

Probably just a blown fuse. You can go to and download Photofact #4918 for this set to get the schematic and troubleshooting tips for $20. Since the relay is not picking up, the fault is probably in the standby power supply and thus you would not be getting any power to the rectifier bridge to begin with. I do not see to many Sanyos and therefore my tech library on that brand is limited and I can't provide more spscific advice. Later!
