Question about Televison & Video

Ok we had a violent thunderstorm, and I didn't have a chance to turn the tv before the power went out multiple times. I tried turn the tv back on and it started to turn on. But then made a popping sound and shut off. Now the light won't even come on. Help please?

    (original poster) ok I got my tv to come back on. I have the Back cover off. But there's a black fuse I think that looks different from the rest. It's number is C849. It sounds like it's buzzing. Is this my problem?

  • cwbarrow1265 Aug 23, 2010

    Me again. The C849 fuse is also getting pretty warm compared to the rest

    ive done more research on the capacitor. It's swollen and it's the only thing I can tell is wrong. I'll buy a capacitor kit and repair it. It should fix it.

You need to look at the power supply module to see if you can locate blown components, you will more likely to need new power supply module, hopefully you will not have other boards that are damaged also but you will need to get the power supply working first to find out if it has any other hidden problems.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

    Component with C designator is for capacitor, the fuse will be labeled with F?. Cap should not be getting warm. Please send me good clear pictures of the board so I can help you identify the parts. Unplug the TV from the outet.

It's my mothers and she had a power surge during a thunderstorm in Tulsa, ok. The power in the whole house flickered off then on again. the TV was on...went off with everything else (no surge...

I have seen a few cases when all that is necessary to repair would be to replace the power fuse. In worst cases transistors and resistors will be blown. You will have to find a TV tech to inspect the power supply. Give me a few hands and thanks for asking!

My area had a thunderstorm and our power went out now my emerson tv won't turn on. Can you help me.

Some times electrical storms contain EMP's - electro-mechanical pulses- which affect the TV permanently.

Take it to a TV technician or junk it and buy a new one.

No signal...deep sleep

Go to main menu, turn off sleep mode, then find the "autoprogram" feature and select it.
THis will program all available channels, just make sure you tv is set to AIR for regular tv and CATV if you have cable.

The thunderstorm may have reset the television. Hopefully there is no damage done to the tuner

During a violent thunderstorm, our air conditioner unit stopped working. The unit looks ok, but I wonder if the thermostat might have been surged?

turn fan from auto to on, if it comes on low voltage should be ok.
Unit may have a breaker or fuses located inside if it's a package unit.

Thank you!!!! Our power was off due to new transformers being installed in the area and we had no clue how to fix this. I called around and no one seemed to know the answer (not even Samsung, who only wanted to tell me my TWO year old tv was out of warranty),so I tried this and it worked perfectly!!! You saved me a bundle! Thanks!
