Does not run. All systems not working. No pilot lights on. Fuse?


That is highly possible. Lightning can hit miles away from you and ruin your electronics. I would suggest that you contact your insurance company about it because it could be expensive to repair.

Sound system keeps cutting off. Red flashing light over power button


Take it in to a Kenwood service centre. You can't possibly diagnose what has been damaged by the power spike. At least it is not totally fried and they usually are. You are lucky.

My Mac G4 Tower, 10.3.9, suddenly lost all color. The display is black/white, shades of grey. When I start to boot up the screen starts blue but then goes to grey. This happened 2 days ago after a nearby...


The wether does have something to do with it. After a lightning storm humidity is a problem. the humidity and heat can make the screen lighter, kind of grey. After the wether clears up it will take an hour to regain full color. Also it could be if it was charging while the storm happened it could have blown a fuse and messed up you screen colors

Why using a telephone during a lightning strom is dangerous?


Hi

Lightning routinely gets into copper telephone cables during storms and can overwhelm the fusing protectors at your home and enter a telephone set, causing a lot of immediate damage to the telephone and the user.

Lightning can travel from outside your home to inside your home—and to you—through materials that conduct electricity, including electrical wiring, phone lines, water, and plumbing. These safety guidelines will help minimize your risk.


If you need to use the phone corded phones are dangerous during thunderstorms. Lightning traveling through the telephone wires has killed people. Cell phone and cordless phones are a safer choice, but stand away from the cell or cordless phone's power base



Hope this will help you.

Maybe you had the same problem as I did... the unit may have been dropped or mishandled during shipping or maybe during installation. If it is still under warranty, return it. If not, try this:

I took mine to a technician that went through the settings, found nothing wrong, except for the fact that it won't play video. What he did afterward was open the unit up and checked out inside. Apparently there was just some little plug that got loose and/or fell off inside. This probably happened during shipping or could have happened if someone dropped the unit I guess. Anyway he re-plugged the little plug inside and it worked fine. I'm still to pick it up and test it myself but this is what I was told today so just thought I'd share it with you guys. Maybe that's what you need to get done.

Please note that if your unit is under warranty (like mine WAS), this would pretty much void it.

Won't turn off...constant hissing...blank sreen


Sounds like a power surge likely followed the outage- or maybe you were actually hit by lightning- and since this set did not have a built-in kill-switch (circuit breaker) it could have very well caused some significant damage. Check the internal fuses, if they are blown, chances are, so is the rest of the set. For the cost of repairing something as over-reaching as this, I'd be looking for something new (And be sure to buy a quality surge protector, so this does not occur again!)

Hope this helps in some small way!
