Lightning Strike My Brother MFC was struck by lightning (even though it is connected to a surge protector) and now it will not turn on and when I plug it into the outlet it just hums. Would it be more economical to purchase a new one or get it repaired?

Replace with new will need new main board (170 bucks) and modeum board, for best protection it needs a fax filter that protects power line and phone line, standard surge protecter only protects power line

    sounds like if you can't afford a fax/phone line surge protector, it's best to leave that disconnected in between faxes....everything else being via the 'Net anyway.

I have a Vizio model E601I-A3, lightning struck outside my house and fried some of my electronics, despite everything being plugged into a surge protector, anyway it's getting power but I have no picture...


Replace the TV as it has been damaged by a power surge and the faults will be recurring.
A home surge protector will do nothing to break the power of lightning.

I have a Samsung tv model un50eh5300f that was hit by lightning. I have swapped the power board and the main video board. It now has the standby light but no picture. What else could be the problem


the fact that unit is nor working after a lightning strike means that all that you have done is to no avail and it will co9st more to continue with repairs than to replace the unit
use a quality power surge protector next time

Is the module of lg tv 32ld330-mb affected when theres a lighting strike???is there a chance to be fix??


The damage from a lightning strike tends to be random. Sometimes it's minor, and only a few parts are affected. Other times, many parts are ruined, or destined to fail soon as a result of the current surge.

If the strike came over the power line, the input surge protectors in the power supply should be replaced, even if they look good. It would be prudent to replace the entire power supply. If you had the set plugged into an external surge protector, that should have taken most of the hit and should also be replaced. (Some surge protector manufacturers will pay up to a certain amount for repair or replacement of equipment plugged into their products if it is damaged by lightning.)

If the lightning came over an unprotected input cable, fixing the set would be a gamble. You could end up changing a lot of modules, beginning with the main board.

All LED lights flashing on Brother HL-2140, how do you clear it?


Your printer needs servicing due to a fault on its electronics. This is due to a power surge or spikes cause by an abnormality in your power distribution system or your power transmission/distribution lines might have been struck by a lightning during a storm and its breakers have failed to cut the power.

As a precautionary measure, always plug electronic devices on surge protectors.

Send your printer to your nearest Brother Service Centers.

After a lightning storm my bosch single 30" wall oven displayed an F03 err. I turned the power supply off at the breaker for one minute as directed by the oven's manual. This action did not...


Find out what the F03 error is for and then check out the appropriate area. If there was a strike of surge the most likely place to look for damage is the area where the electricity first enters into the device.

After lightning struck in my backyard, printer won't turn on.


HI, this was an unfortunate surge that has fried the power board Assembly in this unit. it has also fried the main control. this may be a total loss unless, you are considering replacing the entire mother board and power assembly as well.

Replacing the main control board and power board will restore proper function.

Sony KV-20FV12 channel will not change


Pasted from another message I just posted-

It may be too late for this advice, but if you live in a lightning prone area, you should consider having a 'whole house surge protector' installed.
The cost should be well under $300 (a lot less if you install it) and with the included insurance (most often for $25,000) it is a good investment.

If your house was struck, I'm surprised you don't have a list of things that no longer work.
No, I don't think it is worth the cost of a repair, if you can even find someone to do it for you.
