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.

    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?

Husqvarna 500 sewing machine won't power on

I'd put a surge suppressor and voltage regulator ahead of your machine from now on... because I think you've probably got another fried board. With luck, though, it just needs reseating.

I have a whirlpool cabrio washer and after a power outage it will not light up or start

If you have power to the outlet and the machine does not power up then the control board is fried. All the newer appliances with the electronics need to be on a surge suppressor to prevent this from happening. I repair these machines all the time and it is always the same. Happens after a power outage.
Here is the control board to order.
Here is the complete service manual for that unit also. Keep a copy of it. It will come in handy and will show you how to replace the control board. Look at page 4-5 for the control board replacement.
Keep me posted!

This is unfortunate.
The display is a computer you need to do most of the work.
Go Onlne to and order that display. You will need a friend or a service guy to open and install you new display

Sanyo dp32648 possible lighting strike, whats needed to fix and a possible cost an can i repair myself?

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.

Came home from work to find that my circut breaker was tripped for my furnace...what and why caused this...i flipped the breaker back on and smelled like it fried the control board....why did it do this

The most likely cause was a power surge. The surge from the power line into your house wil fry the board and trip the breaker at the same time. Then when you turn the breaker back on it will continue to fry the board....
Whole house surge protection can help to stop some of the surges, but may not toally protect you from them. Some are too large to be completely stopped with normal surge protection devices.
There are many deivices out that will provide surge protection and some like these that will provide surge protection and can help to save you money.

Nothing hooked up to usb ports but computer tells me power surge

umm, usually you can't. your board is probably feeding too much current/voltage to the usb ports or someone shoved a paperclip into the port and shorted it out (frying the power supply to the usb ports) in any case, you will probably need a new motherboard or power supply.

Computer will not boot up after i disconnect power

If the component with the blinking green light is on your network card, it has nothing to do with your problem, but does demonstrate that *********** board is NOT fried or there would be no voltage available to make the light blink.

Something on your board may be fried, but not the entire board.

Unit needs board level service, so obtain an RMA, if available and submit the unit for bench testing and service.
