Question about Flat Panel Televisions
We just had a lightning strike yesterday and the cable box got friedalong with my modem. My LCD tv will turn on but on all of the inputsit says "no input" and the screen remains blue. I tried to play a DVDand use some of the other inputs but none of them work either. Themenu and all of the tv controls work (source select, menuscreens,...). Is there an easy way to fix this problem? I think thelightning came through the cable rather than the power source.
Your tv is going to need internal repairs. I recommend using our premium service to help walk you through these repairs. Or contact a local repair service.
To avoid this in the future I recommend an inline surge protector or a "green" switch.
An inline surge protector makes sure that all power to your tv comes through at the same level and does not spike or fall. It has a battery backup as well.
A green switch is a way of rewiring your home or your entertainment center to allow you to disconnect all power to your entertainment center when you are away, when a storm is coming, or when you are simply not using the system. A remot control can restore the power.
The average home entertainment center has one of the highest drains on electricity in the average home for appliances that are not in use. that is what makes the green switch appealing.
