Question about Hitachi 46W500 46 in. TV/DVD Combo
During an electrical storm tonight the Hitachi went dim, as with all other lights in the house, low voltage do to the storm. Then all electricity went out for about 2 hours until power company fixed some trouble with the lines. Now, with electricity back on, the tv will not turn on. The book says to unplug it for 30 seconds, then try to power on, I did so, but nothing happens. I can hear a "click" but no light on the power button on the front. When looking at the back of the set, I can see a light inside, so I know it is getting power. Any ideas, or did the storm just zap my Hitachi dead?
There might be a failure on the power supply or horizontal section of the TV even if you see some light inside the TV. Some of the voltages could be missing and that is why the TV fails to power up.
If you know how to use a multimeter, you could check all the fuses from your power supply.
Unplug your TV from the main AC line if you intend to do it yourself.
You will know how much you can do or it might safer to contact a tech.
