My Sony KDL-46V3000 television HDMI ports no longer worked following a thunderstorm, and a factory/power reset did not fix the problem. Do you know what board I need to replace (GF1,DF2,DF3)?

A nearby electrical storm can cause a voltage surge in the mains electrical supply or a very close storm could send a discharge along the antenna downlead and either way the ultra-sensitive CMOS logic chips are likely to be damaged. Such chips are likely to be found throughout a modern tv.

These days a tv is less a television and more computer and should always be used with a surge protector though these cannot provide full protection.

I suggest you entrust diagnosis to an experienced engineer in order to reduce the frustration and expense to a minimum.

Check for small fuse on circuit board:
Water heater circuit boards are NOT protected from surge. And reset button does not protect from surge. Nearby lightning can put out any household appliance, especially since more of these things are electronic instead of mechanical.
Install single-use whole house surge protector and replace it after each surge event instead of replacing appliances.
The quickest solution for tankless is to replace whole thing with more reliable tank-type electric heater for $275 from local box store.

Had a storm the range works but the oven went out model number 8114P732-60 Maytag advance cooking system super cap. is there a reset button

There isn't a reset per say but you can turn the unit off at the breaker box for the home for 1 to three minutes. If this does not work...either the heating elements were blown during the power outage or the control board is now fried from the surge and needs replaced.

After an electrical storm the vcr combo do not come on


Unfortunately this is a worst case scenario. Electrical storms with electrical surges can wreak havoc on all electrical devices if they are not protected with a surge protector. The bad thing is it will cost to more money to have the board replaced as opposed to buying another unit. In the future it is best to invest in a surge protector and protect all your electronic devices. Thanks for visiting

Central air conditioner unit comprssor doesn't come on i suspect a lightening storm did something while we were away

check main power breaker, and reset breaker on unit, otherwise lightning storm would have nothing to do with units problem other then power surge, which would trip a breaker. Hope this helps, Thanks Mikemc1bean.jpeg

Hi, I have a Rheem water tankless heater and there was a storm lastnight so suddendly I have no hot water. What can It be?

1) All tankless water heaters require voltage to operate electronic sensors and circuit board.
This is true for gas and electric tankless.

2) Check that circuit breaker is not tripped. Push circuit breaker all the way one direction and then all the way back other direction.

3) There are fuses located inside the tankless unit, so check your manual for location of each fuse.
Manual is filled with useful maintenance and troubleshooting steps.

4) Before calling service technician, open following link for troubleshoot resources including manuals, Rheem on-line chat, and useful links for maintaining tankless water heater.

5) If you had nearby lightning strike, I don't know if your tankless is protected from surge.
I recommend whole-house surge protector for tank and tankless water heater electronics, and household circuits. Surge protection is installed in main breaker box, and is replaced after each surge event. Separate protection needed for co-ax TV satellite, co-ax surge protection can be found on some ordinary power strips.

We had an electrical storm and I did not have surge protection on my Compaq 7360 desk top. Now, I cannot get any movement on my computer, it is dead. I have checked the receptacle and it is OK. Is there...

Sorry to tell you your computer is indeed fried. Go inside and check the motherboard fuse although I serious doubt it will work again

No surge protector will hold back a lightning strike. Any one who sells these at a specialty computer store will tell you that. High school kids that work at Best Buy don't know anything if you ask them.

The surge protection built into the typical power strip is primitive and the component(s) that provide protection by conducting (shorting) between the hot and neutral degrade with repeated activation. They are worth much when new and after having switched a few times, the voltage breakdown point moves uprange and they become less effective.
Most more expensive electronic systems have better internal protection than that afforded by the majority of the power strips and there might be an internal fuse that blew that can be replaced. I'm afraid however that the main power supply has taken the hit.
The supply is normally built on a separate boardsince these are often out-sourced by set manufacturers.

Unplug your set overnight to allow potentiallyhazardous voltages to discharge, remove the lower back panel of the set so you cansee the guts.
Look for a smaller board with larger parts onit; some cylindrical (capacitors), others block-like and relatively large(chokes and transformers).
You should also see a relationship between theboard and the incoming AC.
Check the board for a label or if not present, astamped-on number.
Call the manufacturer's service center with yourTV model number and the number found on that board and inquire aboutrepair/replacement costs; if both are offered, they won't be that muchdifferent.
If you must buy a new board, don't dispose ofthe failed one as there are smaller companies that can repair it for less thanthe mfr. and then keep it as a spare as this problem will likely arise again.

If you reside in an area of frequent electrical storms, I highly recommend you install or have installed a 'whole house' surge protector. These are either installed in an existing main breaker box or in an auxillary box next to the breaker.
The device and installation labor fall between $150 - $300 US and have an included insurance policy that covers losses of 10 or 25 thousand dollars.
