Question about Televison & Video
I have (had) a 5-year old Panasonic 27" TV. While we were on vacation, lightning struck our apartment building. Now the TV will not power on. The unit was plugged into a surge protector, and the outlet it is plugged into is working properly.
Is it worth it to call in a repairman, or is my set fried?
And if it is fried, where can I recycle it in Chicago?
depending on the intensity of the lightning strike.Your tv may have blown components in the power supply section of the motherboard.
unfortunately its very very difficult to acertain level of damage unless its looked at by a trained tech/engineer
