I have lost many things to power surges; sometimes it's only the electric cord (can be replaced), sometimes it's the battery (for lap tops), sometimes it's the electrical socket itself (try plugging into a different one). Worst case scenario the whole thing is fried (not all power surges are equal) now that I have everything plugged into surge protectors I only see them fry (beats losing another computer) try plugging it in without the surge protector or extension cord (if you were using one).

All HDMI ports on the sony bravia klv40s550a stopped working due to a power surge. I am told the Motherboard needs to be replaced. Need a sony bravia klv40s550a Mbd or a damaged TV with a good Mbd.

You have several options here.
1) replace the mother board yourself, It's really easy.
2) Send the board for repair
3) have a repair shop do the work.
If you decide to repair it yourself go to TV Parts Universal TV Stands DLP Chips ShopJimmy for parts and board repair services.

the chip in the tv maybe fried or may need to be reflashed (reprogrammed), contact manufacture, hopefully it is still under warranty or find a tv guy, buy a surge protector so it doesnt happen again

Lenovo usb port replicator problems power surge

You probably have a fried board in the port rep. after a power surge. Fixing it will probably cost you more that getting a replacement. Other option is to find a used one.

Dear, i would like to know how and what cable i need to connect my laoptop to a home cinema 705 HD projector

Hello Jerrel43, Here is a quick overview: 1. You must first learn what port your laptop offers for video output. Your laptop could have one or several of the following: VGA (sometimes referred to as RGB), DVI, DisplayPort, S-Video, or HDMI. The following link offers pictures of each. Keep in mind that DVI and HDMI offer the highest quality picture, so if your laptop has one of these, use them. 2. You must learn what port your projector offers for video input. After doing a quick search, it seems that your prjector offers VGA, S-Video, as well as HDMI. 3. Plug your projector into the computer with the port available on your laptop. Power on your projector and laptop. 4. Make sure your operating system is "outputting" (sending signal to) the video signal to the projector. This can be done in a few different ways (and varies according to which operating system your laptop is using). A) If you are using a Windows XP laptop, right-click anywhere on the desktop and choose the "properties" button. Click on the settings tab at the top right of the window that opens. Click on the blue box with the number 2 and then click the box below that says "extend my windows desktop to this monitor." At this point you should see and extension of your desktop background being shown by the projector. Just drag any window you would like off of the right side of your laptop monitor and it will show up on your projector.

The control panel on my stackable washer and dryer got fried during a power surge. While the stackable is 8 years old, it still looks new and runs fine normally and has not been over used. The tech...

at 8 years old I think you got your money's worth out of it. (no offence) but if this is for a rental property and you are not close to repair any issues that may come up you have to ask yourself is it worth repairing a item that has and avg 10 years or less life span at 1/3 its cost to buy a new one. If you are not happy with the price of the newer units buy one from the loaner section of a home store or a scratch and dent unit then get the extended service contract with the money you save and you wont have to deal with this issue for 5yrs or more and should one come up you can have some one else deal with it.
