Question about Toshiba Televison & Video
Lightening does a LOT of damage, I wouldn`t have it repaired and I`d contact my house insurance immediately. I`ve repaired lightening damaged sets before only to find that the set only lasts a short period before different fault appears and once you make a claim on the insurance for a repair, they won`t pay out again for another repair on the same set. The problem you`ve got is when the lightening hit the power line, it sent a transient or high voltage pulse through your power lines. The computer and a lot of the other circuits in your set only run at about 5 volts. If your TV power is normally 240 volts like ours is and the transient pulse rises 1,000%, (In practice a lot higher than this) in effect the power lines in your home will have risen momentarily to 2,640 volts. This means that the other voltages in the set will have risen proportionally with the input voltage meaning that the 5 volt lines will have risen to 55 volts which would either destroy the circuits on that line or as you will find out later if you have the set repaired, weaken the circuits which may survive for a short period until you`re sat down watching your favorite TV program and one of these components decide to give up. Take my advice and claim for a replacement set, You`ve been warned. Ian
