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.

Panasonic tv hdmi inputs not working


It appears that during the storm there may have been an electrical surge that damaged the electronics of your tv. If the tuner is working fine then the affected area (board) is the one that has the HDMI input sources.

Hitachi 46w500 went off tonight during storms, low voltage, wont turn back on


There might be a failure on the power supply or horizontal section of the TV even if you see some light inside the TV. Some of the voltages could be missing and that is why the TV fails to power up.
If you know how to use a multimeter, you could check all the fuses from your power supply.
Unplug your TV from the main AC line if you intend to do it yourself.
You will know how much you can do or it might safer to contact a tech.
Let me know if you need further assistance

My behringer mixer phx2000 was took a lightning strike. the right speaker does not work. everything else seems ok


Should either unplug all electrical equipment during a storm or get a grounded filter to bleed off excess voltages from storms, power company fluctuation etc. Once the mixer electronics are fried you are SOL (**** Out of Luck) I'm afraid.

Change TV viewing channel to 3 or 4. If this works your VCR's output channel got changed during storm. If this is the case, review previous answers to prblems with this VCR.
