What did you find as your problem? i had the same symptom on the same tv. Screen froze during lightning storm, now looks like display powers up but no picture or menu. I have let mine sit unplugged overnight without any change. Normally i would suspect Power supply board and it might be but I think the Tuner/CPU board is more likely given the frozen image.

You might have had a power surge.Try unplugging your TV for 5 minutes and plugging it back in. If you cannot get a picture from any device such as a DVD player and cable then your TV needs serviced call a repair man. Good Luck!

What your describing is symptoms of a power surge, Many LCD Tv's are sensative to Slight fluctuation in power during rain, thunder and lightning storms, i myself was happily watching Tv through such a storm at one time, and when i went to bed the TV would not respond remotely or manually, i also disconnected the power from the wall waited for the ready light to disolve and try to turn on, unfortunatley the damage was done, a Tv Repair was nessecary and since then i now use a belkin power surge protector board for my TV and appliances......one question to you is i would guarantee you do not use a surge protection my friend......and your set will need a Tv Repair, it is not major as what is neccesary is a firmware dump on the internal memory and replace the BIOS Battery as well.

Insignia 37 inch....no sound after lightning storm and HDMI's are not working


Dude! You fried it! Sound board can be replaced, but what else was stressed? Replace it, use a good surge protector, and turn the thing off during storms, light a candle and cuddle with your sweetie.

lightning can do extensive damage to electronics equipment especially flat panel TV's. I would really recommend a professional diagnosis instead of board swapping. You could have several boards that are damaged!

Bravia blinking 6 times


The TV is going to protection mode due to secondary power failure in the video out section and this is a case to be handled by a qualified service technician.

During a storm, my tv was plugged into an outlet and it was working fine and in a minute, it turned off by itself. Now the tv does not work. There is no sound, no picture. The only thing thats still on is...


It got hit by lightning I believe. I hope you have insurance. It will most likely be in the power supply board. My recommendation is if you have cost replacement insurance is to get a new one. Once a tv get hits by lightning it is hard telling what other damage may be lurking.

Green light is on ...white noise sound but no picture


This TV finds the connected input sources
automatically for AV1, AV2 and Component 1-
2. It is presumed that RGB and HDMI/DVI
sources are connected.

Check your setup to see if the audio is turn off but if you have a clear picture you should have sound.

Time to call a TV Tech if you are not going to repair the unit.

Blinking light wont turn on Toshiba TV CE19H15


Yes, it's quite possible that you indeed may have sufferd from a Power Spike, induced by lightning during the storm, esspecially if plugged in during said storm. I have had quite a few customers ova the years with this exact problem. I always advise my clients to unplug ALL devices during a storm, and for ones that simply cannot be unplugged then some sort of Spike/Surge Protection device MUST be used. As a matter of interest, I have written many a report to insurance companies to support a claim for a replacement.
