Strange shutting off - now it wont turn on... help?!?!
We just had a very short sudden thunderstorm and our lights did not even go out but our tv shut off suddenly. (it is plugged into a surge protector and the other things plugged into the same surge protector did not shut off) Now it wont go back on... but when we first unplugged it and plugged it back in the lights came on and then turned off right away. (not the screen but the little lights at the bottom marked on timer, program timer, angle) The tv is a panasonic about 3 or 4 years old. but lightly used. is it fixable??

hi good day, it sounds that their is bad parts which need to check at the power supply section of the unit. you can check the primary capacitor or a shorted regulator transistor. but make sure you have knowledge in basic electronic repair so you can perform this checking.
My guess is that the television has been dropped or opened/taken apart which tripped a tamper switch. It my be as simple as finding this switch somewhere on the inside of the tv, and resetting it or shorting the wires to bypass it, or it may be a situation where once the tamper switch is tripped, the tv shuts down forever. I wouldn't recommend opening the tv yourself. They store enough power to kill you, even when it's been unplugged for a while.
TV/vcr combo units develop problems in the vcr section,what happens is the cassete assembly draws too much current then the tv senses this increase and it says NO and shuts down,you will not be able to use the vcr anyway because it has a problem and the tv will continue to shutdown until the vcr is repaired,I have seen combo units with the tv working only as long as the vcr is not use.Remove the light you have in the opening and hope the tv works fine by itself.Adding a light is not safe.I hope this inf.helps somehow.Good luck
The unit shutsdown for a reason ,is sensing trouble somewhere,it could be mechanical problem or an electronic problem,either way it needs service.An estimate will tell you whats wrong and if it is worth to you to repair.Good day
