    The user didn't provide any details about the type of power strip that was used, or whether it was actually a surge protector. The term "power strip" is generic and generally includes any device capable of powering multiple devices. There's a difference between a power strip and a legitimate surge protector. Not all "power strips" provide surge protection, or the same level of surge protection to TV's and other electronic components. Most inexpensive "power strips" provide little if any surge protection and are in fact useless against lightning surges. Unless your "power strip" was specifically designed to provide overload (surge) protection against very large current surges associated with lightning strikes, very likely your TV absorbed the surge and was damaged. The fact that some of the components on the same power strip still work while the TV doesn't work only means that the power strip didn't provide enough surge protection to the TV. Different components react differently to power surges, and some devices may not be noticeably affected by a lightning surge. One other not so well known fact is that MOST surge protectors don't last forever and are only good for one surge. After that, they don't provide any surge protection. The sad thing is, you may NOT always know if your surge protector is actually protecting your equipment. This particular Toshiba TV produces a fairly good picture and it may be worth having a TV service technician inspect the TV to see how much damage was actually done. It may turn out to be be something simple and fairly inexpensive to repair. Good luck.

Tv stopped working after a bad storm


Any piece of equipment that has suffered from electrical storms can be a major problem You could be lucky & it might have just blown an internal fuse or protection resistor or it may have destroyed several components in the power supply. I would advise calling a repair centre to have someone assess the damage & give you an idea of what is needed to repair it. Best of luck.

No power on Samsung TV after storm


Hello Zkarim,

I'm very sorry to hear about your unfortunate new's. I had the same problem in my own home maybe a week ago.

Basically if your power flickered on and off at anytime during this storm then there was a power surge that probably fried your TV.
* First check the power where the tv was plugged in. Is it a power strip or a surge protector ? Surge protectors typically have an on/off switch and a separate reset push button.

If it is a power strip then the tv fried because there was nothing to stop it from happening (not even the fuse). If it was plugged into a surge protector then it could be quiet a few years old and not as reliable or the surge was to powerful for the limit on the surge protector.

The only thing you can do personally is send it in for repair if it's under warranty, if it is not then you can have it looked at by an authorized repair technician in your area. Troubleshooting should be fairly low, and you will at least be able to find out your options once they find the defected part.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Samsung hcn653w power surge


If the set went dead during a storm and will not power up at all, first try unplugging the set and waiting an hour or so, and then plug it back in to a working outlet and try turning it on. If the set still will not respond, your power supply has stopped working and should be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with Samsung projection sets.

Blinking light wont turn on Toshiba TV CE19H15


Yes, it's quite possible that you indeed may have sufferd from a Power Spike, induced by lightning during the storm, esspecially if plugged in during said storm. I have had quite a few customers ova the years with this exact problem. I always advise my clients to unplug ALL devices during a storm, and for ones that simply cannot be unplugged then some sort of Spike/Surge Protection device MUST be used. As a matter of interest, I have written many a report to insurance companies to support a claim for a replacement.
