Sets such as this still have power applied to stand-by circuits whenever it is plugged in. Try unplugging it for 5 min or so and then if normal operation does not return, ask around for a competent repair shop. With lightning or surges it can be either something "simple" to someone experienced (about $50 maybe) or well exceeding replacement cost. A power strip with surge protection is a good idea in the future, unplugging everything is better but not always practical.

Fault to the main power supply regulator section. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

I have vizio sv470m and all of the 4 hdmi plugs stopped working one at a time.


Power doesn't have to be knocked out for a cable box to destroy the HDMI ports on a TV. Thunder miles away will put voltage spikes on the cable system which in turn trashes the main board in the TV. You can get parts for your TV here: TV Parts Universal TV Stands DLP Chips ShopJimmy

Hi there!
One of reasons your tv not working, the thunder storm /lighting possibility has burnt your Tv micro processor. get a technician to check the power supply section too because during the thunder storm your TV circuitry received excessive voltage .
If is the main processor is burnt you have to change it for the TV to work .

Not getting power to tv.Socket and plugs are getting power ,there was a thunder storm,but every thing else fine.


The problem of your tv is the power supply the thunder storm cause that. You should unplug your tv when not in use, try to check the fuse if busted, their are two classification of a busted fuse, if the fuse is only open try to replace it but if the fuse is all burned out dont just replace it, it has a shorted parts like the regulator and the bridge type rectifier
