Question about Televison & Video

Sanyo 24" TV

I had a lightning strike which fried 5 TVs back in June, When I took them to be repaired, 3 were deemed not reparable and 2 Sanyo TVs were repaired by the repairman, One is doing fine and has worked ever since. The other was supposedly repaired but when I brought it home it stayed on only a few minutes and then switched itself off. IT could not be turned back on until I waited several minutes. then I could get it back on but only for a limited time ranging from 3 to 45 minutes. I have had it back to the repairman at least five times. He says it works perfectly at his place and he sent it to a factory authorized repair place and they had it on for a week and said it worked perfectly. I called the power company and they checked the voltage and everything leading into my house.I then called in an electrician and had him check all the outlets in the house. they all checked out normal.While it is on,the picture is perfect and the sound is perfect.The electrician installed a new surge protector on the power panel when he was here. We have tried taking it to our neighbor's home where the same problem occured.We love the TV and would certainly want to have it back as it was before the lightning strike.

As you say that tv works fine at the place of tv tech so it sounds me that you please tell electrician to check for ground connectionat your house. if it is ok then in future you will not any problem.

Our hp printer j4680c took a lightning strike. We replaced the power adapter but when we plug it into the printer the light goes out on the adapter. Is there anything else we can try? The unit doesn't...


This sounds as if it has shorted out the main power board inside the printer. Some small TV Repair shops handle out of warranty printer repairs, but will charge considerably for this. Unless your willing to pull it apart it would be more economical to replace the printer. But ask around, someone may be willing to give you a quote, and this should be weighed against the cost of a replacement
Unfortunately with lightning strikes the amount of power surging up the line can destroy many components inside the printer,and not much can be done from the outside.
Sorry it was not the answer your looking for, but lightning is a electrical devices worst enemy!!

Sanyo dp32648 possible lighting strike, whats needed to fix and a possible cost an can i repair myself?


It wont turn on? Well if it is damaged by lightning the only thing damaged would be the varactors on the power supply. They are there to absorb tremendous surge of electricity. The same way a surge protector works. A worse case scenario is the power supply board is fried up. Then being a non electronic technician you can purchase the whole board or order on line and install them yourself. If you brought it to a shop they will charged you for the labor and the board. Don't buy used boards on the internet because a lot of them are no good in my own experience. Get a new one for about a little over a hundred buck or so.

We had a near lightning strike and now my tv (sanyo model ht27744)doesn't want to come on.


Lightening may have caused a surge on your power lines to the house and to the outlet the TV was on.
Do other things work on that outlet? If not you tripped a power breaker.If they do work check this.
Unplug the TV for 2 min or more and plug back in.
Try bypassing your surge protector you had it plugged into. It could have died when the lightening struck.
(no surge protector?) Bet you'll buy one for your next TV.
Look for 3000 joules and up rating for a surge protector and insure it has protection for a cable/antenna input too.
If this doesn't work the TV may be fried or internal fuse blown.
Time to take it to a repair shop or depending on it's age (5 years+) it may be time to buy a new TV and surge protector.
Near Lightening strikes can effect appliances from several inputs that could be affected from outside like Power, Cable, Antennas, Phone Lines that come into your house.

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.

Lightning strike


I have the same tv, but the problem I have is the picture is shifted to the right and can not correct it. At 1700, its probably not worth fixing because to expensive to repair, they dont make it anymore
