I have a panosonic plasma 42 inch tv. After a storm all I get when I turn it on is black and white static but all the menus display fine


Look to see if the rear video/audio inputs work (DVD etc) and if they do the damage is at the tuner in the set (nearby lightening can discharge into the cable or wires for signal.)

If using a box (cable or satellite) it may have took the hit.

A good idea if lightening storm is to not only unplug set (static discharge can come in via the power cord also) but disconnect signal source from set.

I have in extreme cases seen a nearby strike get in via the power lines and destroy almost every appliance plugged in even if not on.

You can't blame any component in the TV failing after lightening storms. Get lightening arrestors on the antenna cable and use a surge protector on the power cord before you replace the power board again.

After a huge lightening storm, my tv seems to be frozen, went on this morning but will not chang channels or even turn off. I can't find a reset button Help!


Unplug the set and any peripherals that are plugged into it. Then push in the power button and hold for at least 60 seconds. This should reset it to recover from the surge effects caused by the lightning.

It might have been blown out by the lightening storm. that happened to two of my tvs that were plugged in during a lightening storm. they both, and two dvd players, would not work after, but the ones that were not plugged in were fine. You should unplug your major electronic equipment during a storm, unless you have a power surge plug/equipment.

We had a lightening storm and now the tv won't turn on


Possibly a spiked power supply,
If you have insurance you can claim if your covered for fusion. But i would refrain from mentioning lightening as its a religious coput to avoid paying out "Act of God" so lets sue him like Billy Connolly

One thing to try would be to unplug the set for about 10 seconds or so in case the microcontroller is out of sync and not responding to the power button. As far as lightening damaged sets, it does have a fuse but in my own experience, it rarely blows fast enough to protect the solid state circuits and is probably still good. If it still doesn't work when you plug it back in and assuming the fuse is good, then I would suspect a bad voltage regulator or even shorted transistor if it was on when the lightening struck. There are also possibilities of "swollen" surge damaged electrolytic capacitors that took the brunt of the lightening. Depending on the age and condition of the set, it may not be worth repair.
