Sure it can be fixed. Most likely a problem with the power supply being zapped by the lightning.

Check to see what the price of a new PS is and is cost effective given the age of the set.

SOURCE: samsung tv lightning strike reset

It is likely the ac fuse which the power cord goes directly to got hit.

back would have to be removed and fuse checked.

If the power supply outputs are good! Then I would say the back light inverter is bad! If the screen stays black and does not come on.

SOURCE: My flat screen tv shuts off and standby led blinks 13 times.

Our $2700 less than 3 year old Sony LCD KDL-40XBR5 did the same thing 2 weeks ago. Sony was anything but helpful. They said to take it to a repair shop or we could send them $550 and they would replace it with a $800 set. Repairman says that it is a panel and the part has been discontinued by Sony. The 46" sets had the same problem and were recalled but not the 40" screen. We stopped on the way home and purchased a 40"

I have a LED TV that was hit with a power surge caused by lightning.


Could be your household insurance would cover the damage.

Unless the lightning strike was very local to you, on your side of the local substation, the responsibility for the cost of repair or replacement could be the power company's.

Surges from lightning strikes aren't supposed to get past the electrical substation.

Old-fashioned valve tvs and radios sometimes survived huge surges on the powerline and even minor lightning strikes to the antenna but solid state semi-conductors and micro chips aren't very tolerant to overloads of any sort. These days a tv is not longer a tv in the conventional sense but like cars and radios should be considered as just another computer that is full of CMOS chips which are extremely sensitive to overloads and static discharges. Even the screen of your tv is made up of semi-conductors.

I would be very surprised if the set isn't a write-off.

Which circuit board on my Smart TV might be broken after a possible lightning strike. There are two main ones. The power is getting to the unit, but I can't get the menus, connections etc to work.


Nobody can predict, what might have been happened to your TV after a lightning strike. Do you thing anybody can? Is any technician have a super-natural power to predict the faults that might have been happened due to lightning (More than 10 Million volts to start on stroke) ? Can you?
Sorry.
Contact the authorized service center. OK?

Will a nearby lightning strike cause a power board failure?


It could happen yes it would depend where the strike entered the TV. Not all lighting strikes hit on the electrical lines, on a TV they can come through the cable, as well as a antenna if you have one hooked up.
