My HDTV went out in a lightening storm. What could it be?


Is your TV plugged into a surge protector? If not it very well may have gotten a power surge during the lightening storm that fried components in the TV.
Or is the TV connected to a cable box? It could be that the cable box took the hit if it's not plugged into a surge protector.
Or a possibility of both.

Lightening caused surge protector to "spark" but no power loss, and everything plugged in works except the Samsung HDTV


Hi, In a lighting storm you are supposed to unplug your TV. In this case you may have fried something on main board. Take it to repairman. Good luck.

A power surge fried my Epson Home Lite projector HDMI port......how much does it cost to repair or is it pretty easy to buy the part & fix yourself?


I have lost many things to power surges; sometimes it's only the electric cord (can be replaced), sometimes it's the battery (for lap tops), sometimes it's the electrical socket itself (try plugging into a different one). Worst case scenario the whole thing is fried (not all power surges are equal) now that I have everything plugged into surge protectors I only see them fry (beats losing another computer) try plugging it in without the surge protector or extension cord (if you were using one).

How can I get Dynex TV out of "protection mode"?


the protected mode kicks in when there is a safety issue with the receiver. This usually comes from an overload to the system via a short in the system or perhaps a surge in power. Your receiver shuts down, and you'll need to shut the entire system down to fix it.
In some older homes, some of the wiring doesn't deliver the "cleanest" power, delivering minor power surges to the items you plug directly into the wall. If your receiver is plugged directly into the wall, purchase a surge protector to stop this

No power on Samsung TV after storm


Hello Zkarim,

I'm very sorry to hear about your unfortunate new's. I had the same problem in my own home maybe a week ago.

Basically if your power flickered on and off at anytime during this storm then there was a power surge that probably fried your TV.
* First check the power where the tv was plugged in. Is it a power strip or a surge protector ? Surge protectors typically have an on/off switch and a separate reset push button.

If it is a power strip then the tv fried because there was nothing to stop it from happening (not even the fuse). If it was plugged into a surge protector then it could be quiet a few years old and not as reliable or the surge was to powerful for the limit on the surge protector.

The only thing you can do personally is send it in for repair if it's under warranty, if it is not then you can have it looked at by an authorized repair technician in your area. Troubleshooting should be fairly low, and you will at least be able to find out your options once they find the defected part.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Powers on - no output to TV


Ok, this is general hardware failure. This will need to be repaired by a Sony tech asap. the central board is malfunctioning at this time. Contact Sony asap.

Receiver will transmit t.v. sound but no picture


Maybe the video portion of your receiver was fried by the lightning. The good news is, you don't need it!
I run all my video sources (sattelite, xbox and dvd player) to my TV with hdmi cables, and a single toslink(optical) from the televison to my 5.1 home theatre receiver. it sounds great and I only use a single input of the receiver for all my video.

If your setup does not have toslink themn use coaxial digital. it is also one wire and probably is indistinguishable in sound quality.

for future, run the power for all your electronics through a UPS or fancy surge supressor to protect them from bad power (and lightning)
