LIghtning is usually not something for the do-it-yourselfer. Too many things could have happened. The power supply could be damaged, the tuner (if connected to cable or outdoor antenna) could have been damaged. If the power surge was large enough the microprocessor could have been "fried"

If the set is smaller than 27", I recommend you just purchase a new unit which will be digital ready and have all the "new stuff" built in.

Trying to repair a samsung led tv. It was struck by lightening. There are 4 boards in the tv. Do you think if I replace all 4 boards it would work? Could the lightening have damaged the led screen?


any answer here will be pure guessing. and the cost versus the risk of not working by replacing all four boards may make it worth buying a new tv instead.

if you were to try and fix it i would not do anything more than trying to fix or replace the power supply board. . if the power surge has gone further in the electronics. its rarely worth trying to fix

2004 envoy won't start after my house got struck by lightening. Coincidence?


Yes the lighting likely burned out the car's electronic control module(s). Contact your insurance company, this can be a very expensive repair.

Why won't my TV turn on after a storm?


Your TV might very easily be destroyed now, from lightening damage. Lightening can come in on the cable, on the power line, all sorts of unexpected ways. I've personally been struck by lightening, plenty hard enough to destroy almost any electronic device... and I was working in a basement at the time.

ILO 42" flat screen I think was struck by lightening and now there is no color. Is there anything I can do to fix myself?


tried to reset the tv first, if struck by lightning the tuner will be damaged or the main board but since the tv is still working so i think not the lightning was the main cause.

After getting struck by lightening, my tv keeps blinking red and wont turn on.


Posible problem of your tv is the power supply and it is very difficult to fix. You can contact a technician or you can replace the whole power supply. Good day and best regards.

Sony trinitron color tv ,model no.kv-G14Q2,70W,SER NO. 2266941.was struck by lightenning and now can not power or ever do any other operation. what can i do to bring it back to normal.


If your set was struck by lightening then God Help! you must be lucky.
A first hand look into the set is important to see the extend of the damage and if you see burned boards then it will be bettter to go for a full replacementt of the board.Check cost and decide.
However if you are lucky you can have basic faults in the power section, fuse, surge protector, rectifier, capacitor or the Sm driver.
If fault in the tuner side and there is damage there is no hope.

Tv struck by lightning


You wont be able to fix the TV your self as the power circuit board may have blown - consult a qualified repair man. Buying a surge protector for your expensive electronic goods is highly recommended.

Lightening struck nearby and the tv went out. Now


Obviously the tv took the hit but the dvd player was spared. check and replace the fuse in the tv if it's open. If this does not fix it then get an est and file a claim with you homeowners insurance.
