Tv does not turn on after a thunderstorm and several attempts at power returning to the home. The power went on briefly then shut off several times, now the television will not turn on. We had the tv...


Check the main fuse in the power supply, the TV also has small surge protection devices (MOVs) installed after the fuse, any surges the come along and big enough will cause the main AC fuse to blow. When you surge protector, EVERY connections must go through the surge protector, for example, the AC cord of the TV is connected to the surge protector, the cable connection did not go through the surge protection, the surge then can get to the TV through the cables.

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

Power surge hit my surge protector with my 'sony tv hooked to it.


Well, the power supply may be still damaged by the surge, what may happen is that when first surge happens the surge protector protect your TV by sacrifing itself but then the second surge comes along, since the protector already blown up then the surge will just come right through to the TV on the second surge. That is bad problem for the surge protector that sacrify itself but can only do it for ONE time.

Power surge, TV will not turn on


Power surges are extremely unpredictable, they can damage everything inside the tv, from the power supply printed circuit board, to the main printed circuit board. Normally the power supply takes alot of the damage from these things, so check over the power supply for any damaged components, any burnt out parts on printed circuit board, and also check the fuse. Good luck.

After power surge my tv (toshiba 52') will not power on


after a power surge if you dont have in on a surge protector it probably fried the main board in the tv so it wont work anymore..woudl probably be cheaper to buy a new tv than to try to repair the one you have now

Tv will not power up when turned on after a power surge occurred.


Prayfully the fuse inside the tv took a little shock and broke ...if not that would leave the transformer or the board took a surge also but this would also depend on a little more details...

was the power surge damaged?
was tv plug damaged?
does the power surge still work (if it wasn't damage)
and not all power surges are power surges unless it specified of purchase most are like power surges but are only close to and a extended extention cord updated..

if the power surge is damaged or even still works then go have the fuse check and any further damage will also show up on the board it will have a burned part...
