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

My tv was hit by lightning is it fixable


When tvs are struck by lightning most of them are beyond repairs and if successful they always give problems in the future.

Hello a ligtening strike near my house burned out the audio video input board at the back of my set. a repair man came and said the part is no longer available but he could send it to an electronics place...


It's hard to find new parts for older sets like that one. It is very common to have to get boards rebuilt in older sets. Being the a/v board, I would feel pretty safe using a rebuilt board as long as lightning doesn't hit again. There isn't much that will cause one to fail other than lightning. A lot of shops will give you an estimate to replace the set, that you will then give to your insurance company if it's going to be that expensive.

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.

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

Tv struck by lightning


You wont be able to fix the TV your self as the power circuit board may have blown - consult a qualified repair man. Buying a surge protector for your expensive electronic goods is highly recommended.

I have a sharp AQUOS, it was working last night but since the heavy lightning no longer working, power point is OK


Unplug it, wait a minute, then plug it back in. If it still doesn't work, you may have taken a lightning pulse and damaged the unit. You'll need a repairman. BTW, your homeowners insurance may pay for the repairs.

Lightning


Lightning damage could be all or nothing, It's very hard to tell without checks all around the boards. I think your best bet is to check with homeowners and see if they will pay for lightning damage and if they say take it to a tech to fix and they will pay, go that way. But If you want to DIY, then the best thing is to call PTS 18008447871 and price a Deflection module. This is more than likely the area, but still not 100% sure. But it has the HV area on it. This will still be around 200-300 and it most likely will fix the problem. Hope this helps!
