Insignia TV does not come on

Lightening struck near the house and knocked out the electricity in the bedroom that was plugged into the cable surge protector. Everything came back except the Insignia 19” flat screen. The repair people estimated $126 for a board that was burned. Does Insignia repair TVs? The little blue standby light does not come on.

OK if you dont want to pay for this, claim it as FUSION on your home insurance policy. Any legitimate service person can repair this.

But fill out an insurance form and get 3 quotes first.

Trying to repair a samsung led tv. It was struck by lightening. There are 4 boards in the tv. Do you think if I replace all 4 boards it would work? Could the lightening have damaged the led screen?


any answer here will be pure guessing. and the cost versus the risk of not working by replacing all four boards may make it worth buying a new tv instead.

if you were to try and fix it i would not do anything more than trying to fix or replace the power supply board. . if the power surge has gone further in the electronics. its rarely worth trying to fix

Why won't my TV turn on after a storm?


Your TV might very easily be destroyed now, from lightening damage. Lightening can come in on the cable, on the power line, all sorts of unexpected ways. I've personally been struck by lightening, plenty hard enough to destroy almost any electronic device... and I was working in a basement at the time.

Hello,my Sony Bravia HD TV (LED & LCD) we suspect that it was struck by lightning,but my other appliances connected on the same power cord as my tv are working fine,so i'm confused..


The power surge from lightening can come in thru the antenna or cable box. Also just the proximity of lightening can damage one item and not another. An ic chip can be destroyed from the charge in the air.Likely took out power and main brd both.

A security camera on top of our home was struck by lightening. The current ran through the camera cable to the power supply, into a surge protector (worthless), then throughout our home. It affected...


The surge likely came in thru the video input to the TV from the camera. In which case the Main board should be replaced. I have repaired numerous TVs with just Main boards only and not power supplies. This is not always the case but if the input device is fried and it is connected to the TVs Main Board, which has all the video and audio inputs, then that's the bad board. I personally have a nice 46" Sony LCD hanging in my master bedroom which this happened to. I spent $90 on a main board and ended up with a nice $1800 TV in my bedroom. Sweet Action !

Electrical surge can we fix the tv?


Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service.

We had a near lightning strike and now my tv (sanyo model ht27744)doesn't want to come on.


Lightening may have caused a surge on your power lines to the house and to the outlet the TV was on.
Do other things work on that outlet? If not you tripped a power breaker.If they do work check this.
Unplug the TV for 2 min or more and plug back in.
Try bypassing your surge protector you had it plugged into. It could have died when the lightening struck.
(no surge protector?) Bet you'll buy one for your next TV.
Look for 3000 joules and up rating for a surge protector and insure it has protection for a cable/antenna input too.
If this doesn't work the TV may be fried or internal fuse blown.
Time to take it to a repair shop or depending on it's age (5 years+) it may be time to buy a new TV and surge protector.
Near Lightening strikes can effect appliances from several inputs that could be affected from outside like Power, Cable, Antennas, Phone Lines that come into your house.

Tv hooked to cable system and next door neighbor had a lightening strike. After that, the tv does not work any longer--no power light at all.!


Your TV got fried when the lightning struck. Time to get another one.

This time be sure you plug it into a surge protector power bar, available at radio shack, walmart, any TV or computer store.

Sony Bravia LCD TV is tripping the fuse in the house


These things draw a huge surge current when turned on. What size fuse are you blowing? These things can surge 10-12 amps on turn-on. What about a fuse with a reset button. They will take alittle more surge before they go. Don't matter about the insignia working before because the cheaper sets tend to stay powered up more when off....thus not surging on from a dead start. Could you try a different plug on a different circuit/fuse? and see if that makes a difference. If you have a 15 amp fuse, then your pretty close with other stuff plugged in. What size is your service? Do you still have an original 60 amp box with screw in fuses? Is it an old house?
