Question about Mitsubishi WD-Y657 65" HDTV

1 Answer

Help! Lightening struck our house and the tv, receiver, and playstation 3 all went out. Since then, we cannot get the tv to receive input from either the receiver of playstation when using the hdmi inputs. The tv recognizes when a hdmi cord is plugged in, but does not receive any input from it. We can watch and listen to the playstation 3 through the receiver when using cords other than hdmi (s video or rca's). Has anyone heard of hdmi inputs blowing out during a storm, but nothing else?? Yes, we have tried multiple hdmi cords and tried all four hdmi inputs.

It is possible that the HDMI ports are blown. The work through their own circuit area in the TV set. This is a particularly complex area.

You will have to send the set to the authorized service rep for an estimate. See if your home insurance plan will cover for this type of thing. Some types of home policies will cover for this type of thing. The cost of servicing your set may be expensive. Damage from a lightning strike will not normaly be covered by warranty.

2004 envoy won't start after my house got struck by lightening. Coincidence?


Yes the lighting likely burned out the car's electronic control module(s). Contact your insurance company, this can be a very expensive repair.

Onkyo sound popping / protected shows in the display


It depends on what happened to the receiver. Have you tried to connect up the unit to the wall socket yet, without the Monster power strip? If that does not help you, and the unit still gets pops and goes into protect mode, you have an issue with one of the output stages in the amp. I'm afraid that this type of repair can only be diagnosed by a tech who knows how to trouble shoot solid state amplifiers. You may also contact Monster cable, as if you can get the tech to agree with you on the cause of the problem, most of the Monster Cable power strips come with a warranty against this problem from happening and will pay for the repair. Good Luck

We had a near lightning strike and now my tv (sanyo model ht27744)doesn't want to come on.


Lightening may have caused a surge on your power lines to the house and to the outlet the TV was on.
Do other things work on that outlet? If not you tripped a power breaker.If they do work check this.
Unplug the TV for 2 min or more and plug back in.
Try bypassing your surge protector you had it plugged into. It could have died when the lightening struck.
(no surge protector?) Bet you'll buy one for your next TV.
Look for 3000 joules and up rating for a surge protector and insure it has protection for a cable/antenna input too.
If this doesn't work the TV may be fried or internal fuse blown.
Time to take it to a repair shop or depending on it's age (5 years+) it may be time to buy a new TV and surge protector.
Near Lightening strikes can effect appliances from several inputs that could be affected from outside like Power, Cable, Antennas, Phone Lines that come into your house.

Lightening struck nearby and the tv went out. Now


Obviously the tv took the hit but the dvd player was spared. check and replace the fuse in the tv if it's open. If this does not fix it then get an est and file a claim with you homeowners insurance.

Hooking up a sony playstation 3 with digital optical cable


Here's one solution, if you have an audio output from your tv, you can go from the audio output on your tv to the audio input on your receiver that way anything that is playing on your tv for example, playstation 3, dvd player etc. Anything playing on your tv will have audio on your onkyo home theater system. The other thing I would try if you want to hook ps3 directly to receiver is go to your connection settings on your ps3 menu and change your connection method to digital optical cable.

No output from outputs to speakers.


Usually the outputs are not fused, but you can go thur speaker white noise test and see if that works first. If it does, then outputs are probably fine, IF not then the output transistors are most likely bad. Let me know and we can try some other things thur live chat if you would like. Good luck Guru Jay

TV turns on, but no sound or picture from any of the inputs


I don't know if I had any lightning, but it is possible because my DVR/Cable box was operating on limited capacity right before this started. I unplugged everything to reset the DVC/Cable box, and when I turned the tv on, I got real tv sound for a few seconds and then a "no signal" message in the center of the screen. This happens every time I turn it on. It is not the DVR/Cable box because I hooked it up to another tv and it works fine. It's not a bulb because I would still get sound...like this other person, none of my inputs will pick up the cable. I really don't want to just have a random service person in here to charge me to figure it out if someone can lead me down the right path to getting it fixed. Please help, I love this tv and don't want to replace it. LH
