First check the outlet, power strip, UPS etc. that the computer is plugged into. Many devices have a circuit breaker that will need to be reset after a power surge. Once you establish that you're getting power to the computer, check the power supply on the back of your computer - next to the power cord connector. Many power supplies have a fuse or circuit breaker. If there is no reset function or fuse then you will need to replace the power supply. These are inexpensive, simple to replace, and easy to find on sources such as eBay and Amazon.

I hope this helps.

Mitsubishi wd-73738 turns itself back on


Hi,

It sound like the remote is powering off the cable box but not the TV. The remote control may need to be reprogrammed to the TV. When you press power it may only power off the Cable box. At that point, try pressing the TV button on your remote and then Power. If it does not power off the tV after pressing the tV button, the remote may need to be reprogrammed to the tv. Cable companies usually have the codes needed to program their remotes to the TVs.

You can't blame any component in the TV failing after lightening storms. Get lightening arrestors on the antenna cable and use a surge protector on the power cord before you replace the power board again.

It might have been blown out by the lightening storm. that happened to two of my tvs that were plugged in during a lightening storm. they both, and two dvd players, would not work after, but the ones that were not plugged in were fine. You should unplug your major electronic equipment during a storm, unless you have a power surge plug/equipment.

The lightening may of caused a surge and your unit may have it's own protector that resets and comes back on after a time frame programed into it.
