42" westinghouse flat screen wont turn on

We apparently had lightening and storms while I was at work. Came home and tv wont power on. It is on a surge protector along with DVR and VCR/DVD. Turned surge bar off and on, unplugged tv and still it wont try to come on. Everything else that was on the strip works fine. There is also a 19" orion tv in daughters room that was on surge bar and it wont turn on either!! I have the same TV in my room that was plugged in directly to wall and it works fine!

Some surge protectors fail just when most needed.

SOURCE: No power on Westinghouse LTV-46w1 Television

This kind of failure is very common; that is why I suggest that one should keep the old CRT TV, buy a converter and put them both in the garage or basement so they are handy when our s*e*x*y new sets go belly up.
With fair confidence I can say that the main power supply has failed.
If you want to try this on your own, it only will require the removal of a few screws and a flashlight.
- Unplug the set overnight. - Remove the rear housing  - Use some logic and these tips; look for a separate board with larger than average parts on it and seems closer to the power cord than others. This will be the power supply.
Check the board over for something that looks like a part number and record it. If you find more than one, one of them will be the bare board number, the second (sometimes on a sticker instead of printed directly on the board) should be the part number for the assembly.
Search for the Westinghouse service company nearest you and call them with this info. Ask if they repair these or just sell new ones. If it is the latter, don't pitch the old one, continue to look for a repair service that will take it on after you have the new one in place and can watch your favorites again. The new supply will likely cost between $90 - $150 and with a little common sense, most anyone can remove and replace these in the set. Expect any repair to cost about the same as a new supply; US technical labor costs more than Chinese assembly labor. 
These supplies can be as reliable as the primitive older type but companies refuse to use the high-grade components necessary to give them a long life so they fail much sooner than the old, less efficient kind known as 'linear' supplies.

SOURCE: We had a storm come

Hi,
Unplug your unit for 1 hour, before you power it on, press and hold the power button for 1 minute.
If the symptoms still there, then this is an indication that the power supply board was gone to malfunction. Some voltage surge protector is not a 100% reliable because it depends how high is the voltage surge coming from the source and if the design can handle such surged to avoid damaged to the unit. In your case, obviously the surge protector doesn't react efficiently.
Yes this kind of symptoms is quite fixable but needs to send it in because I've suspected that not only the power supply board was faulty but also the mainboard because your direct TV box was also fried which is connected to the TV.
Check if your unit is under warranty/extended warranty, avail it because the manufacturer will fix it for free, but of course don't mention that the unit was fried due to storm. If not, ask for an estimate first for service fee ($300 more or less depends upon the shop) plus parts to have an idea whether to send it in or buy a new TV.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Westinghouse VR 4085DF has no power after a lightening storm. No indicator light whatsoever. Replaced the power supply board, yet still nothing.


If you took a high voltage hit then chances are pretty good that you fried the whole unit. The best I can offer is taking off the back and see if you can find any burn marks on any of the boards.

I have a panosonic plasma 42 inch tv. After a storm all I get when I turn it on is black and white static but all the menus display fine


Look to see if the rear video/audio inputs work (DVD etc) and if they do the damage is at the tuner in the set (nearby lightening can discharge into the cable or wires for signal.)

If using a box (cable or satellite) it may have took the hit.

A good idea if lightening storm is to not only unplug set (static discharge can come in via the power cord also) but disconnect signal source from set.

I have in extreme cases seen a nearby strike get in via the power lines and destroy almost every appliance plugged in even if not on.

Bad storm, lightening strike outside then TV went off and will not come back on.


I would start with your power supply. If you took a surge it is possible that you only blew a fuse. If it is a blown fuse, make sure you only use the same type fuse.

It might have been blown out by the lightening storm. that happened to two of my tvs that were plugged in during a lightening storm. they both, and two dvd players, would not work after, but the ones that were not plugged in were fine. You should unplug your major electronic equipment during a storm, unless you have a power surge plug/equipment.
