Question about RCA P61960 61" Rear Projection Television
We lost power momentarily during a thunderstorm and later noticed that the TV wasn't working. The screen is black and sometimes, not always, there is a low rumbling/crackling sound which appears to be coming from the right speaker and only for a few seconds just after the TV is plugged in. The sound is a lot like that made when an album (LP) comes to the end of one side and the turntable keeps turning.
Also, when first plugged in, especially after being unplugged for some time, there is a spark and faint "pop" coming from the outlet. The set was plugged into a power strip at the time, along with a VCR, DVD player and 7" TV/VCR combo. The power strip wasn't tripped and none of the other electronics plugged into the strip were damaged.
After removing the back panel, when plugged in and powered on, no internal lights are burning; the internal fuse does not appear to be blown.
I'm assuming that since we had a thunderstorm and brief power outage earlier that day, that the problem is surge-related, but possibly not.
Tv has no power and makes a beeping noise

There is a possibility that the semiconductor in power supply side damaged due to electrical surge. more likely the STR IC of Diodes.
