Although chances for the recovery are good but you might need to shell out some money for it ...
the point id that most probably if you did not have any protection for the TV the worst which can happen is that some microprocessor could have got blown up.
i dont know in detail as i am not really an expert in these.
As this has happened once with my TV i thought i might just come and tell you this
If you have a service center of JVC nearby try getting in touch with them
they would be the best option maybe a bit costly but the best choice
If you are willing enough to open up the TV cabinet open it up and try to see if something is burnt or something....

i hope you would get a better solution from some one else

I have a Vizio model E601I-A3, lightning struck outside my house and fried some of my electronics, despite everything being plugged into a surge protector, anyway it's getting power but I have no picture...


Replace the TV as it has been damaged by a power surge and the faults will be recurring.
A home surge protector will do nothing to break the power of lightning.

You need to contact your insurance because that surge destroyed the TV circuit boards.

JVC LT40A320 turns on but no picture. Replaced Power Supply & Backlight Inverter (TV was hit by a lightning surge, would not do anything at first) now the green light comes on but no picture or sound.


Since your TV was struck by lighting, the power supply is the first board that gets affected by the sudden change in AC power.. The main board is the next board due to the fragile components and the excess of voltage that is supplied to it when the lighting happened. Since you have replaced the power supply already.. I would suggest to replace the main board and that should restore the functionality on your TV.

Tv hooked to cable system and next door neighbor had a lightening strike. After that, the tv does not work any longer--no power light at all.!


Your TV got fried when the lightning struck. Time to get another one.

This time be sure you plug it into a surge protector power bar, available at radio shack, walmart, any TV or computer store.

TV won't turn on


It may be too late for this advice, but if you live in a lightning prone area, you should consider having a 'whole house surge protector' installed.
The cost should be well under $300 (a lot less if you install it) and with the included insurance (most often for $25,000) it is a good investment.

If your house was struck, I'm surprised you don't have a list of things that no longer work.
It could just be an expired TV.

TV was struck by lightning


If it was struck by lightning, the surge would completely fry the insides of your TV. Your TV probably won't work anymore and you may have to consider replacing it. Some TVs have accident warranties so something like this could be protected, but if not, you will have to purchase a new one.
