We had a storm the other night, and although I had the tv on an adequate Cyber Power surge protector, the tv will now not turn on. It clicks like it is coming on and the power light comes on, but the TV never does. It continues to click approximately every 1 second. Is there any way to reset the tv?

Depending on the manufacturer, you may have some sort of warranty available. That is, the manufacturer of the surge protector may reimburse you for the cost of TV repairs.
But foremost, try plugging the TV directly into the wall. It could be that the socket or surge protector were fried, but your TV is ok.
Please check if your surge protector is working properly now. There is possibility that the surge protector is blown off due to high voltage surge.
Check if your surge protector has a reset switch which some of the surge protectors have.
If the problem still persists then you have to call the technician to replace the safety fuse which is inside the TV. The cost will not be much.
I will personally recommend that you change your TV as it has outlived its life being 10 yrs old.
there are several fusses in a hitachi located in the power board if your lucky one of them took the hit you can , or have atech look for you the gma type fuse are avail at Radio Shack or your local tv shop
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.
ok lets try this hit the power button on the DVD player some go into stand by mode and when power is interrupted you have to push the button manually also reset the surge protector next get a lamp that you know works and unplug the tv and plug the lamp into the socket where the TV was plugged into turn on the lamp, does it turn on? yes then something wrong with TV again may have been in stand by mode plug back in and try pushing the power switch on make sure the TV if it has a remote is on the right im put to get a picture say like a satellite or cable or DVD player. hope this helps.
First thing to do is try to plug the pc in another wall socket to see if it goes on, If not, the MB could have gotten fried, even though the other plugs seem to work. Hopfully you just need another surge protector as that could have gotten damaged.
