Yes, you can save it, however, it will need to be repaired if it isn't turning on. The questions will be whether the part needed to repair it is still available and whether you want to spend what it will cost to repair it. Likely, one or more parts will need to be replaced and the labor alone will run between $75 and $125.

So, consider the age of the set and whether you want to put money into an out of warranty TV or use the funds towards the purchase of a new one.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Sharp tv has no power

Sounds like your set has been zapped by a spike on the line. Now you know why UPS units and surge diverters were invented.
A new TV sounds probable as many components could be damaged. If you are lucky it could be just a fuse but I have my doubts.
Moral, invest in a surge diverter, it would have saved you a new TV

Your refrigerator could have been a victim of a power surge or spike.
Modern appliances have circuit boards which are highly susceptible to surges & spikes and you really should have these type appliances plugged into a surge/spike protector.
If all else fails, have a qualified repairman come take a look at it, or contact the manufacturer.

Answering and memo systems will not record or playback messages. All other phone fuctions work but the answering system. Phone was unplugged by mistake and batteries ran down. New batteries and setup...

I had the exact same problem. But mine was due to a slight power surge even though I had it plugged into a backup battery with a surge protector. I called RCA and they said this model has a history of answering system malfunctions with power surges. It has a two year warranty. Gave the girl my info from my receipt (although it sounded like I really did not need the actual receipt). She gave me an RMA # so they are shipping me a new unit. I have to pay for return of the bad unit though. Try calling them @ 1.800.511.3180 and explaining your issue. Good luck!

My unit is in stand by but will not power on

Disconnect the main power to the receiver and let it set for 15 minutes or so, this will allow the capacitors to discharge fully. If the receiver did not suffer transformer damage, it should turn back on. If you don't have a good surge protection unit with line conditioning like Panamax or Furman, get one! It will save you $$$ in the long run. Hope this helps.

Had a power surge... a of my external harddrives work; however, can't get either computer to power on... Gateway GT5654 or my wife's Gateway GT5408.. on my wife's motherboard, there is a green light......

You can get a powr supply for this, but if the surge went passed that and smoked the motherboard then your going to need to replace that as well but a new poer supply should shore this up and you can get them from, you be glad you did!

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

The battery plug in area is dead but the surge protector side works

Hello Vicki,

What you are describing is usually a result of the batteries losing their ability to hold a charge.

The surge protector side does not rely on the batteries.

I found good batteries at a reasonable cost on ebay, but I think you're going to need to replace batteries at this point.

Hope this helps.
