Re: LIGHTNING HIT IT
This could be bad.. You want to check the fuse in the power supply. If you are lucky that is all that is bad. If the lightning got thought the fuse you could have real problems. You would have to replace at least two boards, one being the power supply board and the other could be the signal board or digital board. Sometimes they unitize the signal and digital boards as one board. Lightning can do strange things. sometimes it will just take out a diode and fuse Sometimes it can trash a set making it cost prohibitive to repair.. Good luck.

Almost always, the power supply board will need to be replaced after a lightning hit. If the cable or antenna input was hit, you will need to replace the main board also. It is usually cheaper to replace the TV than to repair a lightning hit.
Lightning damage on LCD TV's can be a doozie. You really need to get it checked out by a qualified technician. I've repaired several TV's hit by lightning, most of the time the damage was limited to the power supply board. However, it is possible that multiple boards were damaged. If multiple boards were damaged, it's not worth repairing the set.
Hi, I also live in Highton and having had perfect reception on all channels, also recentlydeveloped trouble picking up HSV7.
I decided to rescan the channels. 7 was still not right so I scanned again and it was fine. This may not be the technical answer you were looking for.
My dissappointment is the tv died last night. No power at all.....fingers crossed it won't cost more than the tv cost to repair.
