This unit needs to be sent or taken in to a service center for complete testing and service. The lightning strike has caused a component failure, in the main board of the television. This is the board that controls all the functions of the television. The customer service telephone number for Insignia is 1-877-467-4289. You can also go to the website www.insignia-products.com. Go to the customer support section and ask them for help getting you television evaluated and serviced. I hope this information helps you solve your problem.

My set was zapped by a nearby lightning strike. The screen still works. But it won't do anything past the "Vizio Internet Apps" screen. It then times it and shuts the screen off. It is a model #E422VA


Pull the plugs on everything - going to everything, starting with the TV and on out. Let everything just set for 20 min. Then, hook everything up to the TV BEFORE you plug in the TV. Turn it on. Good luck. . .

TV out after lightning strike. TV led light comes on for 5-10 seconds then shuts off. Phillips 46pfl3505d/f7. Can this be fixed?


Sure it can be fixed. Most likely a problem with the power supply being zapped by the lightning.

Check to see what the price of a new PS is and is cost effective given the age of the set.

Outdoor unit doesnt kik in at all


Capacitor failure is the most common cause. A lightning strike near by can zap a capacitor. Check the top of the capacitor where the wires plug on. It should be flat. When zapped they will swell and are puffed up a little.

Lightning strike nearby, no power from the card what so ever


The most likely explanation is the high voltage from the lightning has probably zapped the sensitive electronics. It is however worth checking all the fuses are OK
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

"zapped" tv (dee7189)


I would need more details on this problem. Does the tv turn on? If so, what do you see on the screen? If you mean by "zapped" that the tv received a lightning strike and does not turn on, it's possible there are several damaged circuit board components. Depending on the severity of the strike, it's possible that just the fuse is blown. I need more details to advise further.

No Picture & No sound. Red LED, Green LED, Red LED.


If the power supply outputs are good! Then I would say the back light inverter is bad! If the screen stays black and does not come on.

Color messed up on tv since lightning strike


your tv may have ben magnetized by the lightning strike.
tv's have an automatic degaussing circuit that demagnetizes
the pix tube when the set is turned on. this degaussing circuit
may not be working or magnetism may have been too strong for
the internal degaussing to correct.
contact local tv repair shop in your area see if they can manually
degauss your set , it should be a min. service charge around $25.
