Hello,

it cannot be reset, but it can be repaired. Your player is having a power problem. The power supply board is defective that's why the player is acting completely dead. Its receiving power but it cannot transfer the current to the necessary part of the player because a capacitor, diode, etc may have been faulty. Until these bad components are replaced, the Player might not function well again.

If you know about player repairers, I would suggest that you open the Player and read the power board/panel with a meter, detect the bad component and replace it.

But if you don't know about player repairers, take the Player to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you.

I wish you good luck.

My stereo just quit on me there was bad weather but it was on one of those power surge cords it is a pioneer stereo fm-am digital synthesizer tuner


If it was plugged into a surge protector, check the surge protector warranty. There are A LOT of surge protectors that will cover damage to items plugged into them through their warranty system. I've had full home computers and TV's replaced by surge protector companies to avoid having a hit to homeowners insurance.

Wii went dead after power surge


Hi,

Please visit the site HERE it.You will find a solution to your problem.

I would also suggest holding the power button on the Wii Remote itself to turn it on, or unplug your Wii Console's power cable and audio/video cable for 90 seconds. Then plug power in first, then AV cable.

Why are the display lights still flashing even after hitting reset?


You may need to call your service provider to reset it. Try unplugging it completely then waiting for a minute or so then plug it back in and see what happens. If no better then call your provider because they may need to reset your account. Hope this helps

All of a sudden none of the buttons work, we can't change any channels and it will only turn on. The TV is less than a year old, is plugged into a power strip (so there won't be a power surge), and was...


Not all power strips prevent power surge, only those that specify on their packaging or imprinted on them, that they are "surge protectors". Also, even these will have lost their surge protection once they have been hit either by lightning or a strong power surge. You would have to check with the manufacturer on how much of a hit they can withstand. Was there a thunderstorm in your area recently? Are you using a remote to try to change the channels? If so, try the buttons on the tv itself. Also try unplugging, waiting 15 or more seconds, plug it back in, directly to the wall socket. See if that resets it. If you still can't get it to change channels call the manufacturer of the tv, it may be a known problem and they may be able to help.

We moved our TV from it's normal spot (hooked into different power source and cable outlet) and now it's dead. It won't turn on at all. We moved it back to it's old spot and still no luck. We bought it...


If it was plugged in during a power surge without a surge protector, there is a possibility it could be dead. Or if it was plugged into a new outlet without a surge protector, especially if it was never properly shut off before the move, that could kill it. Try unplugging everything and letting it sit for 30 seconds, then try again (with a surge protector if you have one)

Blinking standby light, dead dvd player


Hello illeanaceres,

I'm sorry to hear about the bad news, I had something similar happen to me around a month ago.

Honestly there is not much you can do if it is damaged due to a power surge. Resetting it would be the normal procedure.

Surge protectors only protect equipment up to a certain amount of joules. Basically if the lightning is powerful enough it can damage electronics with that initial surge. You should replace your surge protectors every few years if it is 2-3 years old then it may not be as effective.

Post back if you have anymore questions or comments. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Ihave a sony KP53S75 TV there was apower surge and now there is no picture. The red light blinks 4 times can anyone tell me about this?


Hi, if this TV was hit by the surge and it was protected by a surge protector, please follow this reset procedure.

The STANDBY light will flash if an issue is detected within the television. This can sometimes be resolved by simply following the steps below to reset the television.
  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.

If the problem is still there and the light is still blinking 4 times, this means that the surge has destroyed the Vertical deflection component. in this case, it will have to be replaced.

please rate and have a great day.

Blank Screen


Be sure that the power cable and the video cable are plugged into your monitor, the power cable is plugged into a good outlet, and the video cable is plugged into your computer. It's possible that you simply have a loose cable.

If everything is installed correctly, and if the screen is completely blank (no "cable disconnected" or "test mode" messages), then it sounds like your monitor is simply dead. Since there was a heavy wind storm recently, it was probably hit by a power surge. If you don't already, I recommend that you use a surge protector for all digital equipment.
