Had lightning hit near by and tv will not do anything. could it be the cord or is there a reset button?


it may have blown the shock diode on the power board check that and change it. it stops the tv from blowing up in a lightning strike. if it has worked it wil have just blown that and the fuse inside the tv and nothing els.

Dynex tv


If your TV dead after the lightning, then your TV doesn't power ON with red light stays on lit you possibly have faulty main board.

If totally no indicator try to replace the fuse on power supply board if busted or blown (it is usually connected directly from power cord.

If the fuse still blown you need to replace the whole power supply board.

please rate!!!

My dynex tv wont turn on! the strom knocked out our power, now the power is back on the tv wont turn on from remote or tv power button.


Lightning is a weird beast, and can do strange things to a TV. Sounds like the set took a hit. If there is a fuse then check it on a volt-ohm meter for continuity while it is out of the circuit, and if it is an open circuit, replace it. If there is a circuit breaker, then reset it. If these don't work, look for obvious scorching on the circuit board (assuming you know how to avoid electricution, otherwise do not touch). Lightening can literally jump around on a circuit board, so there is no way to know what part of the set was effected by the strike - the lightening will not always burn out the first circuit it touches, but will burn out something further into the circuit. The most obvious place to look is around the transformer and rectifier circuits. If a capacitor was hit, it may be swolen or discolored; resistors will scorch, and the worst thing is that transistors and IC's often show no damage - in fact, any part might be burned out and not show visible signs. If nothing is obvious (like scorch marks) and the fusing is intact, there are too many possibilities to begin listing them all. The fact that it won't turn on at all sounds like it is probably a power circuit, but, not necessarily. FYI turning a set off during a lightning storm does not protect it, you have to unplug the AC power cord and the line that feeds the signal into the set. Even circuit protection devices (lightning arrestors) may not protect against a close strike. Maybe the techs at Best Buy can supply more suggestions (Dynex is their brand).

Where is the fuse located ? Was hit by lightning


The fuse is located int he front end of the power supply which is a SMPS- switch mode power supply unit. Now trace the power cord and you will arrive at it from the mains switch.
If the fuse is blown you must be careful and specially if the new fuse blows then it is confirmed you have more damage in the circuit.... In most cases it can be too severe depending on the strike level.
Please check this link for tips on SMPS.

The tv shut down when lightning occured when i open it i saw a busted fuse i tried to replaced it with the same amperes rated but the fuse blown


The lightning probably took out circuitry before the fuse went. Solution, call your insurance company and get a new set!

My neighbor?s house was hit by lightning. My Keurig machine was plugged in and now won?t work at all. Is there a fuse/breaker/reset button?


..um... there might be a Movister a metal oxide Resister that may have taken the hit...but there is a electrical panel in the unit. the b-70's electrical unit is on the right side lower area... covered by the black shroud.
no breaker... that's for sure...
It could be as simple as a circuit board trace blew... acting as the fuse when the Movister took the jolt of the lighting hit... so it may be fixable.
just the realitty of opening up the unit... and your willingness to open it and look...

you can re-submit on how to open the unit...
I have an answer on how to open up a B-70... should be similar

Lightning?


90 % of the time, when you get lightning damage to a tv set, its not worth repairing, because the chain reaction the surge causes. Its a matter of labor v cost of a new set. Ive seen brand new large screen tvs 1 week old get popped with lighyning and cause every board in the set to bur and blow out not only the printed circuit traces, but the ICs had holes in them and the transistors were blow apart. Luckly this customer had homeowners insurance and got a new set. With a lightning strick all you can do is start from the front of the power supply an work your way back till you get some life in the set. Now you could get lucky as I know panasonic uses whats called a thyristor type of a device that when a surge enters the set it shorts out the ac plug and pops the internal fuse and it will be black. You cant simply replace the fuse cause the thyrisistor is shorted. Also no one with no teleivision training should be inside a tv now a days as there are no user serviceable parts inside and theres way way more voltage inside these sets ,even unplugged then a dvd or satillite reciver. I would advise you to get a pro to assist you in this matter as it could if your lucky ,like i said before be a simple problem But i've seen peeps make a mountain out of a molehill. Good Luck
