Tried to get some one to tell me if I should repair or replace tv


If the TV is totally dead, check the fuse. Check power supply components. unless it is accessed for circuit damage it is difficult to say whether it's worth repairing. If you have Insurance take the claim.

Lightening came in on the cable, is there a reset or a fuse in the electrical input?


Yes, however the pcb could be fried due to the high voltage, need to have it checked by an approved engineer and contact your insurance company if insured
Never take the back off the tv unless you have safety training, it can still have voltage inside even with the tv turned off

I have a Toshiba 27AF43 27 inch television that no longer powers on at all. We had a lightning strike right next to our house and it tripped our breaker box. When I flipped it back on all other electronics...


Lightening does a LOT of damage, I wouldn`t have it repaired and I`d contact my house insurance immediately. I`ve repaired lightening damaged sets before only to find that the set only lasts a short period before different fault appears and once you make a claim on the insurance for a repair, they won`t pay out again for another repair on the same set. The problem you`ve got is when the lightening hit the power line, it sent a transient or high voltage pulse through your power lines. The computer and a lot of the other circuits in your set only run at about 5 volts. If your TV power is normally 240 volts like ours is and the transient pulse rises 1,000%, (In practice a lot higher than this) in effect the power lines in your home will have risen momentarily to 2,640 volts. This means that the other voltages in the set will have risen proportionally with the input voltage meaning that the 5 volt lines will have risen to 55 volts which would either destroy the circuits on that line or as you will find out later if you have the set repaired, weaken the circuits which may survive for a short period until you`re sat down watching your favorite TV program and one of these components decide to give up. Take my advice and claim for a replacement set, You`ve been warned. Ian

We had a near lightning strike and now my tv (sanyo model ht27744)doesn't want to come on.


Lightening may have caused a surge on your power lines to the house and to the outlet the TV was on.
Do other things work on that outlet? If not you tripped a power breaker.If they do work check this.
Unplug the TV for 2 min or more and plug back in.
Try bypassing your surge protector you had it plugged into. It could have died when the lightening struck.
(no surge protector?) Bet you'll buy one for your next TV.
Look for 3000 joules and up rating for a surge protector and insure it has protection for a cable/antenna input too.
If this doesn't work the TV may be fried or internal fuse blown.
Time to take it to a repair shop or depending on it's age (5 years+) it may be time to buy a new TV and surge protector.
Near Lightening strikes can effect appliances from several inputs that could be affected from outside like Power, Cable, Antennas, Phone Lines that come into your house.

A month ago our house was struck by lightning and The Insurance company wants to know what the price of the Television. Or what it is worth today. He purcheased the TV about 4or5 years ago. the tv was...


$150 usd- $177usd. SEE HERE
$200 SEE HERE

Quote from the link...
" My Bottom Line

Considering the price, I am pleased as punch with this purchase. Expecting to receive only basic features, the Orion shouldn't disappoint. Audio buffs should look elsewhere, but at a purchase price of approximately $150 for a 27" TV, one isn't looking to the STV2763A as a high tech set. I'm sure I'm forgetting certain specs here, but this my low tech review of a low tech set. I'm happy with the Orion, a nice balance of value and price."

Amount Paid (US$): 177.00

Since it is 4-5 years old look to get less than half from the insurance co.

One thing to try would be to unplug the set for about 10 seconds or so in case the microcontroller is out of sync and not responding to the power button. As far as lightening damaged sets, it does have a fuse but in my own experience, it rarely blows fast enough to protect the solid state circuits and is probably still good. If it still doesn't work when you plug it back in and assuming the fuse is good, then I would suspect a bad voltage regulator or even shorted transistor if it was on when the lightening struck. There are also possibilities of "swollen" surge damaged electrolytic capacitors that took the brunt of the lightening. Depending on the age and condition of the set, it may not be worth repair.

TV Powered Off, won't come back on


mine did the same thing, I took it to a TV repair store and they said it was a power surge which damaged the power source board. (possibly caused by lightening)
total cost to repair was $70.00 well worth since was only couple years old.
TV is working well.------we'll see for how long????
