Hi Last night during a lighting storm, the power in the house went off. The problem is that when it came back, everything works but the TV.

I live in southern Spain and each time they take anything away for repairing, it takes ages to come back. Olease help...

Is there a reset button on tv? tv went out in a thunderstorm last night and will not come back on.

Hi Anne,
It is not a case of reset. The power supply section of your TV is damaged in the thunder storm. It is a common thing happening to TVs. Yes, sometimes, if you are lucky you escape with small damage like fuse and a few safety components. Otherwise you may have to replace the entire power board. Please consult some local TV tech,
Good Luck.

First check your power outlet, try connecting the TV to a different power outlet. Then see whether the LED light on the TV is on or blinking. Anyhow, this might need attention by a qualified service technician.

During a storm we lost power just for a second. When the power came back on my tv was dead. I have a 15DLV76. What should I do?

Yep, thats the way power outages work. They usually destroy your electronics which is why you have to unplug just about everything. The tv needs repair.
