Question about Sanyo Televison & Video
I have a Sanyo DP52440 television that won't turn on after a lightning strike. I've tried other outlets, the capacitors on the power supply appear fine, and nothing seems particularly damaged (just by looking at it). When I hit the power button, the green light comes on for a few seconds, then turns off and remains off. After hitting the power button, I can hear a very faint, high-pitched sound I believe coming from the power supply. Is this something that replacing the power supply could fix? Or is it better to replace the tv? This tv belonged to a friend of mine, so I'm not sure the exact situation when the lightning struck (though it may have been plugged into a surge protector). Sorry for the lack of details, but I appreciate any insight.

Your main boards are bad. They are no longer available, You have to
have the chasis rebuilt. Mitsubishi is rebuilding these chasis. You
have to pull it without any cut wires & ship to Georgia.

SOURCE: tv will not come on,
First off what is the exact model of the tv? Secondly do any lights come on at all? Do you have homeowners or renters insurance? then the surge would be covered under that and depending on size of the tv an equivalent size tv it would be worth it to put in a claim. Once I have more information I can assist you further.

If cable box converter has damaged, there is no question about the main board of your TV. It has been damaged. Before replacing it, you have to check the power supply board also. If the TV has been pluged to power supply, surely there will be fault to it also. We can't predict the exact fault occurs during a lightning, because Trillions of volts are passes nearby. You have connected the TV with cable connection and to the home power supply too.
Just replace the main board first. If it does not hel you, replace the power board too. I hereby send picture of both boards.
The first one is main board and the other is power supply regulator board.
