The control board(s) are fried. Cost of parts, assuming they're even available, is likely to be very high. Not a DIY project.

Call your home insurance company. You should have at least some protection for lightning strikes - but there could be disclaimers regarding electronics unless you purchased a rider.

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.

Is the module of lg tv 32ld330-mb affected when theres a lighting strike???is there a chance to be fix??


The damage from a lightning strike tends to be random. Sometimes it's minor, and only a few parts are affected. Other times, many parts are ruined, or destined to fail soon as a result of the current surge.

If the strike came over the power line, the input surge protectors in the power supply should be replaced, even if they look good. It would be prudent to replace the entire power supply. If you had the set plugged into an external surge protector, that should have taken most of the hit and should also be replaced. (Some surge protector manufacturers will pay up to a certain amount for repair or replacement of equipment plugged into their products if it is damaged by lightning.)

If the lightning came over an unprotected input cable, fixing the set would be a gamble. You could end up changing a lot of modules, beginning with the main board.

How check pcb after lightning strikes??


Over voltages as little as 20% greater than expected (under the right circumstances) can cause components to fail with no outward indication of failure. Other times, these same or greater voltages will obliterate a component and without the benefit of a schematic will make identifying & replacing it impossible.

Nearby lightning strikes often cause multiple components on different PCB to fail at the same time, complicating troubleshooting significantly. Faults can appear on power supply PCBs and in the RF stages along antenna / cable inputs and out to cable boxes DVD players, etc.

These are usually not fixed by DIYers without specialized test equipment and manufacturer's service manuals.

My sony bravia NSX-40GT1 is dead....no lights...nothing. (lightning strike) If I replace the P/S board will that get it up and running?


First things i would check are the powerpoint and then the fuses
a lightning strike at the powerpole may take out a fuse at the fuse box thus no power at the powerpoint,a power surge could take out the fuses on the powersupply board but check all fuses ,be sure to unplug the set from the wall first.
good luck.

Will a nearby lightning strike cause a power board failure?


It could happen yes it would depend where the strike entered the TV. Not all lighting strikes hit on the electrical lines, on a TV they can come through the cable, as well as a antenna if you have one hooked up.

Lightning strike at house, tv not working. Standy light now blinking 4 times.


Hi.
Yeah, lightning can wipe out electronics really easy.
I would file a claim with your homeowner's insurance policy.
Surely they have these kinds of things in your policy.
As far as getting it fixed, first you will need to get estimates from 3 different companies for your insurance company.
I would take it to BestBuy, Fry's, Staple's, or CompUSA.
All these places have service centers, and I am sure that they have all seen lightning strike damage and insurance quotes.

I hope that you get it going again, or that you get an approved claim, as it was an act of God, not an intentional act which affected your tv.

Good luck to you, and have a good day.

Lightning strike and tv picture messed up


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.

Lightning strike


Lightning hits do some nasty damage to electronics.
Alot of times that type of repair is part of an insurance claim. The insurance company requires estimates and will repair them up to the cost of replacement.

If you arent dealing with an insurance claim on this I'd still recommend a professional estimate.
Lightning damage sometimes is confined to the power supply and once repaired could be fine bit in my experience most items that take a nasty hit are a write off.
