If the TV is totally dead, check the fuse. Check power supply components. unless it is accessed for circuit damage it is difficult to say whether it's worth repairing. If you have Insurance take the claim.

What's the likelihood of my TV being able to be fixed after a lightning strike killed all electronics on one wall?


Probable power supply fault now. Maybe if you replaced the power board it might work again.

I have a Vizio D24-D1 TV that went dead after a lightning strike. I want to open the TV for inspection and repair but there are no screws to remove for removal of the back of the TV.


They tell you not to even try to open up the works on a TV. There are sections in there that will give you a shock a number of hours after its turned off. My repair man said he knows someone that was near ***** because he opened the works up and never shorted the hot section out. Not worth getting hurt over. Repair people have special tools for that.

TV comes on but non-responsive otherwise


I would purchase a replacement. The damage a surge can do is usually not economic to repair.

My 62 inch mitsubishi tv was hit by lighting


Try to find a local repair centre & ask if they can give you an estimate on the cost to repair. A lightning strike can cause either minor damage such as just an internal fuse blown or can cause severe damage which will wipe out entire circuit boards which can be a costly repair. In this case it's usually not worth repairing.

I have a 50 inch Sony Wega and the TV is not coming on,the TV flashes green for about 45 seconds and then flashes red. The lamp light is not lit up, and the TV sounds like it wants to come on but it does...


ok then, it sounds like it is trying to strike the lamp on some of these Sony projections it will keep trying to strike the lamp even though the bulb is no good. The lamp error detection may not be working correctly, there is a detector loop around the ballast and if it is not positioned correctly it cannot correctly detect a bad lamp. Try removing the lamp and see if it is physically damaged, if not it still may be bad and is the most common cause for a no error condition and no light problem.

Lightning strike


Hello bkindle.....not a boat anchor YET!!!! Had similar problem with WS-55513 and it turned out to be a faulty DM board. There are 4 capacitors on the board that may have blown. If yo can solder, it is a pretty easy repair. I purchased a PDF manual for mine online to get familiar with the model.

Otherwise, you can expect to pay between 275.00 for a repaired board OR between 350.00 and 450.00 for a replacement board from Sears or Mitsubishi.

Hope this helps. I know it is frustrating but be patient.

Good Luck - Richard (MetalDad)

Lightning strike


Lightning hits do some nasty damage to electronics.
Alot of times that type of repair is part of an insurance claim. The insurance company requires estimates and will repair them up to the cost of replacement.

If you arent dealing with an insurance claim on this I'd still recommend a professional estimate.
Lightning damage sometimes is confined to the power supply and once repaired could be fine bit in my experience most items that take a nasty hit are a write off.
