If the fuse show any sign of being charred, you have a serious problem. If the fuse was open, then there is a chance a fix is near. You did not specify a brand of TV or how old this TV is. I would guess by the nature of the power indicator you described. You have two bad capacitor in the power supply. Please find these and replace. It may be as simple as explained. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

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.

SOURCE: How do I trouble shoot a tv struck by lightening ?

That is a tricky question, lightning can cause minor to severe damage. If the TV is completely dead, the power supply board will be the first order of things to check, if fuse is open chances are there will be damaged parts and open foil. If fuse blows, board replacement would be the next step, however the risk is will it work, lightning may take 1to 3 boards for example and the unfortuneate thing is you must sub boards until it works.

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.

Hello,my Sony Bravia HD TV (LED & LCD) we suspect that it was struck by lightning,but my other appliances connected on the same power cord as my tv are working fine,so i'm confused..


The power surge from lightening can come in thru the antenna or cable box. Also just the proximity of lightening can damage one item and not another. An ic chip can be destroyed from the charge in the air.Likely took out power and main brd both.

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.
