    I was given this TV over a year ago. Loved it until recently doesn't power up. Power light comes on for 1-2 seconds, then off. No lightening hits here. Really don't want to get rid of it but don't want to spend $300+ to fix.

Had lightning strike. Will not turn on.

Main processor was fried and god only knows what else. Call a repairman and be prepared for a very stiff repair bill. Or just junk it and buy a new one.

Lightning struck the cable tv line coming into the house. All of the electronics connected to the cable quit working. I took the back off of one of the tvs, and could not find any sign of scotch, burn,...

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.

Surge from lightning strike damaged tv and won't turn on.

Unless you are skilled at trouble shooting power supplies , you will be better off getting a skilled repair center to repair yourset. If its repairable I have seen surges from lightning strikes make the set no longer cost effective to repair.
