LIghtning power surge fried transformer

Had a service guy come over and tell me that a power surge fried my power board and that I need a new power kit.
Can I order this part and install it myself? He wants to charge me 300.00 for the repair.

Thanks.

    We had a power outage the other day.  Apparently the 50HDX82 was powered on at the time of the outage.  When power returned we got nothing - no picture at all.  Could this have been due to a power surge?  We tried the reset procedure which did nothing,  Is it worth replacing the power board if that turns out to be the issue?




    Thanks,

It wont turn on? Well if it is damaged by lightning the only thing damaged would be the varactors on the power supply. They are there to absorb tremendous surge of electricity. The same way a surge protector works. A worse case scenario is the power supply board is fried up. Then being a non electronic technician you can purchase the whole board or order on line and install them yourself. If you brought it to a shop they will charged you for the labor and the board. Don't buy used boards on the internet because a lot of them are no good in my own experience. Get a new one for about a little over a hundred buck or so.

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.

A surge protector stops power surges from eskom etc. from fryin your mother board and power supply. when the power goes off sometimes its just a phase . when all phases are off and the power comes back to all Phases instantly at a strong output this can fry your mother board or damage your power supply . surge protector keeps the power at one level even if it isnt , make sense? Also see UPS.Lightning can do the same effect too
