It's fried! You can claim it on your homeowners/renters insurance in a situation like that!! Or you can sell it for parts on eBay and get up to $200 for it. Hope this helps. Good luck to you.

ILO 42" flat screen I think was struck by lightening and now there is no color. Is there anything I can do to fix myself?

tried to reset the tv first, if struck by lightning the tuner will be damaged or the main board but since the tv is still working so i think not the lightning was the main cause.

Hi I have a Sony STR-DH510 that was struck by lightning and would like to fix it myself ,new in elektronics. Johan

As you are new to electronics it is not something that i would suggest, generally items struck by lightning are considered a total loss as the damage is massive, you have to replace every diode, IC and voltage regulator, also most if not all of the electrolytic capacitors will need replacing and parts will cost more than buying a new one.

Stereo struck by lightning and i need to fix it...

I would have thought it will become obvious from the burnt parts and broken parts inside the amp, if it was struck by lighting, when you take the top off. But clearly unless it has an aerial connection, it will have to be from the mains lead that lighting went in to the unit, so a good look around the power supply section, I think first.
To be honest depending on the damage if you fix this one they should give you top marks!
Many service people would say no-chance!

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.

Struck by lightning and won't power up

Warranty voider there.
Hate to see a $1,000 TV go down the toilet.
If your lucky, you can try checking the fuses inside the TV.
The lightning may have taking out only your power supply board, may have replacements for about $100. But, I can't tell you for sure that will fix the problem.
You may have to take to a repair shop to find out for sure.
Good Luck
