Good Day, gizmoally;

After storm to reset your TV; unplug TV from the wall for 4-6 minutes, then plug back into to wall, ensure outlet is working. If doesn't correct then TV's main a/c fuse may open.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

TV out after lightning strike. TV led light comes on for 5-10 seconds then shuts off. Phillips 46pfl3505d/f7. Can this be fixed?


Sure it can be fixed. Most likely a problem with the power supply being zapped by the lightning.

Check to see what the price of a new PS is and is cost effective given the age of the set.

Had lightning hit near by and tv will not do anything. could it be the cord or is there a reset button?


it may have blown the shock diode on the power board check that and change it. it stops the tv from blowing up in a lightning strike. if it has worked it wil have just blown that and the fuse inside the tv and nothing els.

Lightning mcqueen tv will come on for a few seconds, then shut off?


Likely a bad connection in the set, considering a 13 inch it may cost more to fix than to just buy another set. Most of these 13 inch sets are not very well made to begin with.

Our electricity went out for a few minutes, and since then the TV will not turn on. The green light is flashing. We tried resetting it by pushing a pen point into the reset hole, but it does nothing. ...


Your power outage may have been caused by a nearby lightning strike, or any number of
1000 different reasons that cause power surges, brown-outs, voltage spikes, inductive loading,
and/or utility pole breaker trips and resets (this accounts for your power loss (a pole breaker trip),
followed by restoration of power (the pole breaker automatically reset) - even plain old high electrical demand causing an overload due to air conditioning demands caused by hot weather.
When the pole breaker reset, your TV caught a power surge.
Whenever a power outage occurs, quickly power off (or better, unplug) any/all computers, TVs,
etc. that are not protected by surge-protection.
As an electrician, when someone loses an item of electronics concommitant to an electrical
anomaly, its almost
always traceable to a nearby lightning strike (or the power company provided equivalent), accompanied by inadequate surge protection for
the VCR/TV/Computer/Stereo/uninsured valuable electronic item/XBOX 360/Nintendo Wii.
Surge protection can
be provided by the consumer at the power strip (a good one with builtin MOV protection and a
warranty costs $20, whereas a zero-protection 4-outlet or 6-outlet power strip will cost $4-$5).
Your electrician can provide whole-house surge protection where a whole-house MOV-based (metal oxide varistor) surge protector, or per-circuit protection can be installed with
a GFCI breaker (or better, an AFCI breaker) can be installed.
GFCI = ground fault circuit interruptor
AFCI = Arc fault circuit interruptor
Lightning protection is especially important in Florida, which is the "lightning capital of the world."
I've never found a good solution to lightning-fried electronics (random power supply components are destroyed and/or fuse blown), other than renters insurance or homeowners insurance.

Your only real hope for an economical fix is to look for a blown fuse, and replace it.

If desperate to attempt a fix on your own, you could try replacing the entire TV power supply as a module, but even this provides
no guarantee of a fix - lightning damage can extend beyond the power supply.
When traveling, I will always unplug everything before I leave (except the security system),
and also turn off the breakers to unneeded house circuits (which kills the wall switches that
control interior lighting - forcing a burglar to use their flashlight instead of interior lighting)
which is the least convenient lightning protection, but highly effective, and cheap (free).

Sanyo DSs31820 dead after lightning storm. Is there a master reset?


A lightning storm will destroy a TV in many cases. I have repaired very few, with this problem. I would certainly find a new TV, if this is the case for sure. Thanks for asking!
