Question about Hitachi 61SDX01B 61" Rear Projection Television
My house got hit by lightning and my TV seems to have been affected. When I turn the TV on there is no video and no audio, but the red light in front of the TV does come on. The fuse inside the TV is good, I do not see anything obvious inside the TV of being damaged, The TV was plugged in to a surge protector. The cable for cable TV had no protection. What could have fried on it? the power supply, the lamp... Help
Most likely the power supply. In most models, if the lamp goes out you will still get sound. However, the power supply is not a single piece swap. I would suggest getting a voltmeter, and check the voltage where the power cord meets the power supply. Then follow the circuit pathways, checking after each component, until you find a break in power. You are getting power to that light, so some power is getting through. However, the light works on much less voltage than the rest of the television, so probably there is a capacitor or transformer that's gone out.

Excellent visual acuity technique!! I try to teach that procedure.
IC F6629B is probably shorted and at least one other part will
be open, possibly a zener diode,a fuse,a resistor or combo.
The service diagram would help.Be sure to use OEM first quality
parts.Let me know if you need more help.
