Check you warranty status and options, most OEM original exuiptment manufacturers do not cover act of god/nature damages, do not report yet that the system was struck by lightning, take information on waht your warranty has and can provide you with repairs, ask if you can upgrade your warranty an d get an upgrade of having the option that the warranty coverage will cover accidental damages but make sure before you upgrade oro purchase the accidental damage warranty that it covers lightning strikes cause if not you will just be spending money on something that already has been burnt by lightning ^_^

Basically your laptop is taost, possibly replacing it with a new one will cost less than having it repaired. ^_^

Hello. I have a RCA flat screen tv that lightning hit it through the cable wire but the tv was plug out. Is there by any chance the tv can be repaired?

lightning provides HUGE power surge to electronic components. it is very likely that your TV is now a paperweight.
call a tv repair shop in your area and have them take a look. Usually the initial evaluation is no charge, but call and see.

Notebook wont boot up

That is typically an internal power supply issue. Power surges (Lightning) cause this type of behavior and a new motherboard is the only remedy. There are companies that specialize in repairing laptop motherboards. For the cost of repair you can probably buy a new one.

MY tv was hit by lightning its a sony trinitron model kv-XA29M20A

this may sound daft but ANY electronic equipment hit by lightening should be thrown away. it is not worth even trying to repair it.

try claiming on your home insurance policy.

There is a high probability that your laptop has been fried, especially if it was plugged into the mains at the time of the lightning strike.
A lightning strike could damage many components and even if you could get it fixed (most likely require a motherboard replacement) there are no guarentees that some other component won't fail in the future.
If it was me, I would put my money towards a new laptop and get a surge/lightning protection power board and disconnect the laptop from the main during a lightning storm.

Surge from lightning strike damaged tv and won't turn on.

Unless you are skilled at trouble shooting power supplies , you will be better off getting a skilled repair center to repair yourset. If its repairable I have seen surges from lightning strikes make the set no longer cost effective to repair.
