When and How Should a Surge Protector Be Used on a Fixed Switch?


Common Causes of Lightning Strikes
  • Outdoor network cables or power cables are routed overhead.
  • A switch is deployed outdoors but is not properly grounded.

Damages of Lightning Strikes
  • If power cables of a switch are routed overhead in an outdoor environment, lightning strikes may burn the power supplies.
  • If network cables of a switch are routed overhead in an outdoor environment, lightning strikes may burn interfaces of the switch.
When a switch undergoes lightning strikes, overvoltage is induced by lightning on network cables and transmitted to interior of the chassis. The surge protection measures, such as lightning rod and chassis grounding cannot prevent the damage. Therefore, surge protectors or surge protection circuits are recommended.

Surge Protector Use Precautions Take the following precautions to protect a switch from lightning:
  • Ensure that the ground cable is connected to a ground bar or a ground point on the cabinet.
  • Avoid routing cables overhead in an outdoor environment. Bury cables underground or route them in steel tubes.
  • To protect network interfaces against lightning, use 8-line surge protectors (or Huawei certified 4-line surge protectors).
  • When installing a network interface surge protector, connect the IN end to terminals and the OUT end to network interfaces of the switch.
If a fixed switch is installed in a network box, follow these instructions:
  • Connect the ground cables of the switch and surge protectors to the ground bar in the network box.
  • The maximum length of a ground cable cannot exceed 40 cm, and a length of smaller than 15 cm is recommended.
  • If the network box is located outdoors and power cables are routed aerially over a long distance (more than 300 m) to the network box, it is recommended that you install a power supply surge protector in the network box. The decoupled power cable must be at least 3 m long

Got hit by lightning and won't turn on. Power source is good. Need to find out how to take it apart.


Most of the time after an appliance has been hit by lightning, it is toast. In the case of a printer you can probably buy a new one for the cost of the replacement part. Next time make sure you also purchase a surge protector to plug your computer and printer into and then you will be protected from lightning strikes.

Is the module of lg tv 32ld330-mb affected when theres a lighting strike???is there a chance to be fix??


The damage from a lightning strike tends to be random. Sometimes it's minor, and only a few parts are affected. Other times, many parts are ruined, or destined to fail soon as a result of the current surge.

If the strike came over the power line, the input surge protectors in the power supply should be replaced, even if they look good. It would be prudent to replace the entire power supply. If you had the set plugged into an external surge protector, that should have taken most of the hit and should also be replaced. (Some surge protector manufacturers will pay up to a certain amount for repair or replacement of equipment plugged into their products if it is damaged by lightning.)

If the lightning came over an unprotected input cable, fixing the set would be a gamble. You could end up changing a lot of modules, beginning with the main board.

L32HDF11Ta no power power surge from cable input


It may be fatal and if you have homeowner/renter insurance check that out.

If it took a direct hit the set would have been in a thousand pieces so someone who knows sets needs to look inside just to see if toasted or not--this kind of damage in the newer sets can cause so much damage the set may no be worth fixing.

Pasted from another message I just posted-

It may be too late for this advice, but if you live in a lightning prone area, you should consider having a 'whole house surge protector' installed.
The cost should be well under $300 (a lot less if you install it) and with the included insurance (most often for $25,000) it is a good investment.

If your house was struck, I'm surprised you don't have a list of things that no longer work.
No, I don't think it is worth the cost of a repair, if you can even find someone to do it for you.
