The fee for diagnosis should also be recoverable from the insurance claim. Check with your agent, as most diagnosis fees that you incurr arrising from an insurance claim are usually recoverable

Back into me insurance. Paid bumper and paint When he hit me my head lights went out. insurance. Says not possible wont pay i need to know if it ids posiible 2004 Volkswagen tourage


Insurance companies always try not to pay if you can't prove it was accident related. If they can't see it, they won't pay. You need to bring it to a licensed repair shop and have them diagnose the problem to see if it is related to impact. I have done auto body and automotive repair for over 35 years and to answer your question it can be related. Did the relay come loose? Was damage done to relay contacts? Did wiring get pinched in rear somewhere and cause short and fuse to blow out? Can be many things. Get it checked and prove them wrong.

Call your insurance company and put in a claim.
If it is under warranty call HP.

Lightning strike at house, tv not working. Standy light now blinking 4 times.


Hi.
Yeah, lightning can wipe out electronics really easy.
I would file a claim with your homeowner's insurance policy.
Surely they have these kinds of things in your policy.
As far as getting it fixed, first you will need to get estimates from 3 different companies for your insurance company.
I would take it to BestBuy, Fry's, Staple's, or CompUSA.
All these places have service centers, and I am sure that they have all seen lightning strike damage and insurance quotes.

I hope that you get it going again, or that you get an approved claim, as it was an act of God, not an intentional act which affected your tv.

Good luck to you, and have a good day.

My home was struck by lightening and my 48 inch HD tv is not working but makes a strange noise. I need a repair person to give me an estimate for a repair or replacement for my insurance. can you help?


I have worked on many televisions in my time and have yet to bring one back to life after a lightning strike.
My best suggestion is to get a quote from a local servicer and get a replacement from the insurance company.
If you need any further help please reply to this post.
I hope that this helps you with this issue.
Thanks for using Fixya.

Denon receiver just struck by lightning.


Any time a unit is hit by lightning, it is usually a total loss. While the initial problem may be fixable, other components have been stressed and are likely to fail. Most shops won't work on these units because of the likelyhood of continual failures. Warranties won't be given or the repairs. In your specific case, the switching IC has been damaged and needs to be replaced as well as the surround processing section. This is best handled as an insurance claim for replacement.

Nothing works.


Remote receiver got fried by the voltage spike. If you have pull chain controls as well, you can remove the receiver and possibly be able to save the fan, but the capacitors, may have also been fried. If the capacitors are fried, then most likely the motor experienced some seriously high voltage too, which would mean I would replace the fan. I assume you have had the house's wiring inspected? If lightning struck the house and killed the fan, then it likely ALSO damaged other electrical components. If the lightning struck your power transformer and not your home directly, you may can get the power company to pay for this ceiling fan as the transformer is supposed to have a lightning arrester on it.

I have a 58'' HP Pavillion Projection screen TV. It was struck by lightning. the power cord is good. It will not turn on at all, no fans running, etc. What do you think I will have to fix?


As u have just said that it was struck by lightning the only way to get the TV back working is to replace burnt items on the moterboard .becouse lightning must have demaged some components on the power supply, if possible i would preffer a new power supply board

AC won't cool


you would be surprised what lightning can do if its documented on a service ticket insurance will pay. usually the tell tail signs of a lightning strike wire connections look like welding splatter. have compressor changed and both coils cleaned. Tom

Lightning Strike?


Assuming this line is across the screen horizontally (side to side), this means the vertical deflection circuitry is dead. In late model sets, there is a Integrated circuit package which drives the vertical yoke coils. Possible defects: the I.C. itself, bad solder connections where it solders to the board, missing voltage source to this I.C. (often around +24 volts), or a bad electrolytic capacitor in the associated circuitry. This latter often results in a non-linear picture, or less than full deflection condition, rather than a thin line only. It is possible lightning caused this problem, (I've seen some rather illogical damage from lightning ) perhaps it produced enough of a surge to pop the I.C. or a fusible resistor in that voltage source noted above.
