Color messed up on tv since lightning strike

A couple of months ago, lightning struck my apartment building and the color on all 3 tv's in my apartment were messed up. The next day, the living room tv had straightened up as well as one tv in one of the bedrooms; however, my small Emerson tv is still messed up in the other bedroom. Is there a way to correct this issue?

Your tv may have ben magnetized by the lightning strike.
tv's have an automatic degaussing circuit that demagnetizes
the pix tube when the set is turned on. this degaussing circuit
may not be working or magnetism may have been too strong for
the internal degaussing to correct.
contact local tv repair shop in your area see if they can manually
degauss your set , it should be a min. service charge around $25.

The wether does have something to do with it. After a lightning storm humidity is a problem. the humidity and heat can make the screen lighter, kind of grey. After the wether clears up it will take an hour to regain full color. Also it could be if it was charging while the storm happened it could have blown a fuse and messed up you screen colors

Depending on the amount of Joules your household/microwave received your low voltage control electronics may have been fried by the lightning strike. For your own safety I recommend a new microwave.

Lighting struck the apartment about a week ago, tv was plugged in when lighting struck apartment. Tv does not turn on anymore.


Best to take it to a repair centre as lightning damage can cause either minor fault such as an internal fuse blown or major problems that would make it uneconomical to repair. Ask for an estimate for the cost to repair.

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.
