Stopped working after a storm


Did you have a power surge after a loss of power? If so your TV is ruined from the surge. In the future use a surge protector if don't already.

Why does my tv turn on then off , on, off continuosly by its self an wont stop


Electrical storms can damage components. Are you insured?

When you get the TV fixed/replaced, buy some surge protectors or a UPS (uninteruptable power supply) to protect the rest of your gear.

Wont turn on but tries too come on,power light blinkink


Internal power supply failure. Was there a lightning storm in your area recently or utility work being done recently? This two things usually kill TV's and other electronics with surges when power is restored. If the set is under warranty call the manufacture, if not, call you homeowners insurance agent to see if the damage is covered w/or w.o. deductible. At least you can get something toward repair/replacement costs. Future fix, purchase and install a surge arrestor in your main AC panel for the whole house or buy a power strip with a built in surge filter/protector for your expensive equipment.

My sharp LC-46SV50U wont turn on


get the service manual and then open it up and do a voltage check on the 5v standby.

if it's not showing anything, then you need to hunt down if it's the ic, cap, or diode or a combination thereof.

Insignia quit working after storm


Check the fuses on the power supply board first. They usually blow when you get a power surge. You may be able to replace them and get the TV running for a few dollars. If the fuses are good then the power supply board will be the issue. The main board should not be damaged because the surge has to go through the power supply board first.

Had a lightning storm,now brand new aircon wont restart,remote is ok


The electrical storm may have caused a power surge and burned out the circuit board. Especially, if the power went out briefly and then came right back on. Most manufacturers recommend turning the unit OFF during a power outage/electrical storm.

Hope this helps you.

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.
