    First, replace that surge protector. It didn't do its job properly.

    Secondly, what OS are you using....Vista or XP?

My HDTV went out in a lightening storm. What could it be?


Is your TV plugged into a surge protector? If not it very well may have gotten a power surge during the lightening storm that fried components in the TV.
Or is the TV connected to a cable box? It could be that the cable box took the hit if it's not plugged into a surge protector.
Or a possibility of both.

It appears lightening has damaged your router. Do you have a surge protected powerboard and do you plug all your computer equipment into this powerboard?
If you do not have a surge protection board, I suggest you install one to protect your equipment.

I would pull the logic board and check for burnt or missing traces on the printed circuit. Garage door openers hate electrical storms. I really doubt it got to your start capacitor.

The monitor was working one day and the next day, it would not come on, screen black. My grandson has had the monitor for almost three years.


Hi,
I'll hope for the best and assume the simple fix first. Check the plug at the back of the monitor to insure it wasn't pulled out slightly. Sometimes, moving something around can cuse the plug to lose proper connection.
Also, check the power source to insure that you have power to the unit. We had a lightening storm recently and the power strip surge protector did it's job. I turned it back on and everything powered up again.
I hope this helps... Good luck!

PROBLEM WITH MY HUB DES-10160(D-LINK)


Yes the LAN will report plugged and unplugged when the hub goes on and off.

Is this a new or used hub?
If it is used, how old is it?
Is it plugged into a good power source?
If it's plugged into a surge protector, do any other the other items plugged into the surge protector do the same power on and off?
Has it sustained any damage recently (lightening storms, power surges in the house etc).
