First try plugging the receiver into an outlet that is known to work. If it still does not work, look at the following:

Hopefully there is a fuse on your receiver that is blown. 2 options before it needs to be repaired by a professional:

1. Look on the back for any type of fusing house. It would be labeled "Fuse" and they are commonly held in by what looks to be a flat head screw.
2. If there is no fuse on the back of the unit, it is very possible that there is an internal fuse. Open the chassis, and carefully look for a fuse. It usually is about 1/4"diameter cylinder that is about an inch long. IF you are unfamiliar with electronics, it may be wise to skip the opening of your receiver.

Lightning Strikes can do a lot of damage. Hopefully its a blown fuse.

What's the likelihood of my TV being able to be fixed after a lightning strike killed all electronics on one wall?


Probable power supply fault now. Maybe if you replaced the power board it might work again.

hi due to it being lightnig strike their could be that much wrong with it that you might never find the problem.
If you are going to try and repair it then your going to need a multimeter and also get hold of the schematics so you can follow them and for any part numbers you might need.
The chances are its going to be several blown resistors because the lightning strike causing power surge so i would start looking around the board where the power lead goes into the board this would be a good place to start testing

I have a LED TV that was hit with a power surge caused by lightning.


Could be your household insurance would cover the damage.

Unless the lightning strike was very local to you, on your side of the local substation, the responsibility for the cost of repair or replacement could be the power company's.

Surges from lightning strikes aren't supposed to get past the electrical substation.

Old-fashioned valve tvs and radios sometimes survived huge surges on the powerline and even minor lightning strikes to the antenna but solid state semi-conductors and micro chips aren't very tolerant to overloads of any sort. These days a tv is not longer a tv in the conventional sense but like cars and radios should be considered as just another computer that is full of CMOS chips which are extremely sensitive to overloads and static discharges. Even the screen of your tv is made up of semi-conductors.

I would be very surprised if the set isn't a write-off.

Your Sony Bravia KDL-46S5100 might have been affected and damaged by the lightning strike. You cannot fix it without the help of qualified technician. It must be brought to your nearest service center.

Fan doesn't work after nearby lightning strike


Your issue is most likely a faulty speed control, which presumably was destroyed by a power surge. The part is integral to the remote receiver in the fan housing. You can purchase spare parts for this fan through Home Depot (Hampton Bay) Service at 800-654-0688.

The fan unit itself is manufactured by AirCool 800-896-4908

Unfortunately the Brookdale fans with a Rhine 7058 series controller have a separate circuit wire for each speed. Rewiring this to use a conventional fan receiver that uses a single wire to control each speed is not easily achieved. Your best bet is to order a new remote receiver of the proper type.

"zapped" tv (dee7189)


I would need more details on this problem. Does the tv turn on? If so, what do you see on the screen? If you mean by "zapped" that the tv received a lightning strike and does not turn on, it's possible there are several damaged circuit board components. Depending on the severity of the strike, it's possible that just the fuse is blown. I need more details to advise further.

Altec Lansing ACS45.2-Lightning strike


There is a good chance with a lightening strike that damaged so much of your equipment that this device was also affected. power to the device doesn't necessarily mean that other components were not damaged.... you can elimanate speaker damage by hooking the speakers up to another device to check them.

Surge from lightning strike damaged tv and won't turn on.


Unless you are skilled at trouble shooting power supplies , you will be better off getting a skilled repair center to repair yourset. If its repairable I have seen surges from lightning strikes make the set no longer cost effective to repair.
