Good Day, DaiseyLu;

I would recommend an expert to look at your TV's but if you are handy the main fuse may be the problem.

To locate the fuses; follow where the a/c line cord attaches to the PCB (printed circuit board). ALWAYS unplug before attempting any type of service to the TV. The fuses are a small glass type devices, the values will on the fuse itself or on the PCB near the fuse. Inspection of the fuse will tell if it's bad, IF THE FUSE IS BLACKENED BE VERY, VERY CAREFUL.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

    Good Day, Daisey;



    I know what you mean about storms, I'm here in Houston, Texas with a hurricane coming down on us this day, I'm from Detroit, wish I was there now or in Chicago watching the Ballgame, ASTROS.



    The blacken fuse normally means that more then the fuse is bad. Like maybe a regulator or something else in the TV's power circuit.......Just make sure he uses all caution for his safety.



    Good Luck, big IRISH.

How to reset tv after a storm


Does the satellite receiver power up? Usually they go through a test sequence when trying to reconnect, i.e., there is some picture output to the TV even when a satellite is unavailable. Did the input on the TV get changed? Try cycling through all the inputs. Do you have any other video devices, like a BlueRay or DVD player? Do they work? Divide and conquer, figure out what does work, then look deeper into what does not.

My tv was zapped during an electrical storm...what part should I look to replace?


It could just ba a fuse but it could have damaged the power supply or even worse it all depends on hard it was hit. You really need a TV service man for this.
