Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

No Power A few nights ago a couple of long thunderstorms and a lot of lighting strikes in our area, caused my TV and cable box no power through. I also discover my garage door opener also not working although it has the light on. Generally, there is a standby red light on the ON/OFF button, but this case I did not see any power. I checked the same outlet that I use all units, it does have power to my receiver and DVD player. Does anyone could provide me some hint to why no power on my TV? If the lamp is totally out, does it really have an effect on the light located at the ON/OFF switch?

    Actually I resolved the problem. As I speculated, the fuse was blown out. I had to replace a new fuse. That was a great experience.

Would replacing the main board fix my TV?


We can't predict what might have been happened during a lightning strike. If the TV is dead now; the main power supply regulator board [SMPS] board is fault. If so, you have to replace it first. then only we can get information about the condition of the main board. If the TV was connected to external Ariel or cable; before the lightning stroke; the possibility to damage to the main board too is there upto 80%.
In fact, if both of this boards are damaged, it might cost around 2/3rd of the total cost of a new TV.
The decision left to you. Do whatever you want.

How do I fix my Vizio Television after a thunderstorm?


You TV was victim of power surge. You should take it to a qualified repair service to diagnose it, it it it can be repaired and if it's worth.
Curren flat panel electronic TVs are particularly sensible to power surge so it might be a good investment to use spike protectors.

Lighting strike 42 inch phillps tv mill not turn on


I would first look at the power supply board. it might be a removable fuse. unplug the TV first, remove the back of TV check the area to where the power cord comes into the TV. it should be real close to the power supply board.I have had a couple of quick fixes by just replacing the fuse. (that means it did it's job) if that doesn't fix it try to get the part # from the power supply board and check with Shop Jimmy.com for replacement board. (easy fix) take pictures of the back of TV with cover off and of the power supply board before u do anything. Leave the old board in place till the new one comes in. that way you won't forget where the cables went etc. Just be careful cause the dead board can still hold a charge so handle with care.
