Question about Sanyo Televison & Video

I have a Sanyo 42" Plasma TV. Possibly hit by lightning, and won't come on. Model # DP42740-05. Is it salvageable?

Hello, I have a Sanyo 42" Plasma TV, that will not come on at all. Model # DP42740-05. March 25th, we got hit by lightning. It took out the landline phone, internet modem, burned out some bulbs in an overhead light, took out the DirecTV box, and this Sanyo TV. Everything is up and running again, except the TV. Luckily we had a back up TV. When you plug it in, you can hear a click, but nothing comes on, and the on-off switch, and indicator light does not come on. Just wondering if you would have an idea if this TV is salvagable. I've watched a lot of You Tube video's. That's where I found your email, and website. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Probably not worth repairing as it would be cheaper to buy a new tv.

You need to report to your homeowners insurance. It is normally about as cheap to buy TV nowadays as to repair. Especially one hit by lightning.

No video but audio is fine on Sanyo 42" DP42746 TV

If you unplugged the Ysus board, then you need to replace the Ysus board, or both sustain boards. This is the part: The part is often available on Ebay, or from manufacturer. Look also at Vance baldwin or Partstore. To do a good job the Sustain boards should be tested by a tech , following service manual. It is almost for sure sustain board by the way.
