Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service.

My HDTV went out in a lightening storm. What could it be?


Is your TV plugged into a surge protector? If not it very well may have gotten a power surge during the lightening storm that fried components in the TV.
Or is the TV connected to a cable box? It could be that the cable box took the hit if it's not plugged into a surge protector.
Or a possibility of both.

I have a 60' lg..flat screen..walked in house.heard lighting in a distance.my daughter turned the tv on..then it shut off..think lighting hit it..any way to fix//


Always a good idea to have a "surge protector" between the wall outlet for electrical and the appliance plugged into it. A surge protector will prevent a surge that could damage your set. $10.

My envision model L32W961 volume goes from normal volume to blasting then back to normal. it started after lighning hit a tree beside the house.


Anytime and electrical storm is close enough to hit a tree, it sends all types of energy through everything. Did you have a surge protector on the TV? Sound to me like the TV has internal damage and needs repair or replacement. Have you tried to simply unplug the TV and wait 30 seconds and plug it back in. This sometimes will reset the microprocessor.

Your surge protector did not function properly, contact the manufacturer of the power strip.

After a lightening strike hit our house, our Panasonic Viera powers on but does not have a picture or volume. The best buy geek squad set the TV up but did not plug into a surge protector. Is the TV...


i would say there is a good chance that the power board has fried , or some rectifiers on the power circuit have gone, i would check the mosfets for damage too. I would try a working power board in it to see if any life is shown before writing it off

We had a near lightning strike and now my tv (sanyo model ht27744)doesn't want to come on.


Lightening may have caused a surge on your power lines to the house and to the outlet the TV was on.
Do other things work on that outlet? If not you tripped a power breaker.If they do work check this.
Unplug the TV for 2 min or more and plug back in.
Try bypassing your surge protector you had it plugged into. It could have died when the lightening struck.
(no surge protector?) Bet you'll buy one for your next TV.
Look for 3000 joules and up rating for a surge protector and insure it has protection for a cable/antenna input too.
If this doesn't work the TV may be fried or internal fuse blown.
Time to take it to a repair shop or depending on it's age (5 years+) it may be time to buy a new TV and surge protector.
Near Lightening strikes can effect appliances from several inputs that could be affected from outside like Power, Cable, Antennas, Phone Lines that come into your house.
