Know principles of diodes, transistors, transformers, etc. Any help is appreciated. Thanks and have great days...........Ed

Ed,
Open the back and take a look at the saw tooth filter cap. It's the largest cap you'll encounter in the PS. Just follow the electrical cord onto the board and look for a VERY large electrolytic cap in that area. Usually they bow at the top on a strike like that. Replacing the cap might restore the unit.
If not do you have an esr meter?
Bill

Lightning strike at house, tv not working. Standy light now blinking 4 times.


Hi.
Yeah, lightning can wipe out electronics really easy.
I would file a claim with your homeowner's insurance policy.
Surely they have these kinds of things in your policy.
As far as getting it fixed, first you will need to get estimates from 3 different companies for your insurance company.
I would take it to BestBuy, Fry's, Staple's, or CompUSA.
All these places have service centers, and I am sure that they have all seen lightning strike damage and insurance quotes.

I hope that you get it going again, or that you get an approved claim, as it was an act of God, not an intentional act which affected your tv.

Good luck to you, and have a good day.

Had a lightning strike near our house. After the strike we are no longer able to get a picture on our TV. Running a Yamaha RVX 1600 receiver. Screen on the receiver says HDMI ERROR and HDCP ERROR...


That strike could easily blown an internal component either via the mains supply or aerial, near where I live in those bad old days before a local TV relay got fitted with protection a strike on it would blow every "suitable" house in the main road that led to it as it followed along that mains cable.

If you are seeing nothing (including a set up menu) then its had it because repair costs make it not worth it, claim on insurance possibly house contents as a service contract would exclude it I would think.

If you can see the menu then try initial set up and see if that helps restore things if not then it would be a new set.

Hope this helps..........

A lot of electronic devices have built-in on-board surge suppressors such as MOV's, and avalanche diodes - these could get damaged during a lightning strike. Fuses are another possibility. Beyond that, gotta take out your DMM and oscilloscope and start troubleshooting, or see a technician.
