Check out Ceramic Capacitor C514 by the horiz. output transistor (burned/shorted?) My question is how do you find the specs of the capacitor and where do you buy one?

SOURCE: Panasonic TV model CT 27D10B fried by lightning surge

Hi There,

I am unsure as to "where to start looking" means? Do you mean parts to fix it or new TV's?

If you are looking to fix it, you will end up spending a lot more than you prolly want. The surge could have blown a board, Power Supply, fuse, capacitor, transformer or a combination of them all. These TV's are only 27" and if you look on government websites you will see they start the bidding around $5 for the whole TV. If you are looking to upgrade I would suggest balancing a budget that works for you especially with the economic issues going on. 1080p is the latest being talked about, but that doesn't mean it will work for you. I went to Walmart and spend $600 on a Visio HDTV 1080i and I have not had a problem yet (knock on wood). I would not suggest buying a Panasonic HDTV but that is my personal opinion - the majority of issues I have resolved at my full time job came from Panasonic Projection TV's and HDTV. At the same time they were able to shoot out one of first 103" TV's but that just means some tech will have a bigger TV to fix in the future - LOL..

Hope this helps and feel free to rate me..

Happy Holidays..

SOURCE: tv after power surge

I have been servicing televisions for over 20 years and I have never had any luck on a lightning strike repair. There are too many variables in electronics and IC's and these repairs can be very lengthy. I would ask for a replacement rather than a repair.


I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

This time it came in on the cable, the clue was the cable box also blew. So if you had a cable surge supression device...for HDTV, I think you would have survived the second surge.

I do have the technology. It is a F-connector type and will handle HDTV signal.

Today my power went out for a split second and came back on I turn my TV back on it makes a high pitched whining noise and the screen wont turn on. Cant add picture but model number is MW30G71.


unplug your tv. let it sit for a good bit. 1/2 hour did your power just go out or did you have a power surge then no power. surges cause the grid to go down for a second too and that causes problems too. surge protectors are good for everything. also are you on cable? if so have the cable company check they're filters into the house may be an issue but check the tv after a half hour unplgged and then plug in and turn on normally? sometimes it needs a reset time period before the fuses inside will reset themselves.

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).

Had a power surge into the house- the tv was not on a surge protector and i am wondering if the tv is blown out- or is there a fuse possibly that blows at a power surge?


hello kath... if the tv won't come on now the power surge fried internal fuse and possibly more. The least expensive way to get this repair is to physically take the tv to the repair shop. If they have to make house calls, the cost goes up significantly. Joe

RCA HDTV model#HD52W59. When I turn the power on it stays on for a few seconds and then goes off by itself.


TV turns off unexpectedly
• Sleep timer may have been activated.
• Electronic protection circuit may have been activated because of a power surge. Wait 30 seconds and then turn on again. If this
happens frequently, the voltage in your house may be abnormally high or low.
• Unplug the TV. Wait ten minutes. Then, plug the TV in again.

Have an Aquos Sharp 32" 1080p LCD TV and the power went out in the house. Now the TV will not turn on, when I try the power indicator light blinks green repeatedly. Read the manual no help there....


This sounds like a problem that only a repair person can specifically point out.  It could be anything from a fuse to the "engine".
Try to find a local "authorized" repair person to give you a free quote with no responsibility on your part to get it fixed as TV repairs can cost 50% of what a new one would or what a working used one would.
Also, I'd recommend to NOT overload your electrical outlets and to not use without a surge protector (a real one).  If there is a storm or it's very windy,  try keeping not only your monitor for your PC off, but also your TV (unless you need it for emergency reasons).  Also, try getting a used battery powered cheap small tv with a digital converter box if you need to monitor the tv during an emergency.  Also, get renters of home insurance to cover the costs of weather related damage.
Last thing... be sure that any "extended warranties" offered by your local electronics store will cover the cost of any weather related power outages.  If so, it may be something to look into purchasing, although I generally advise to not buy into "extended store warranties".
OK, one last last thing... check the warranty with the manufactuer (SHARP)... If it's under warranty, tell them it's not working and you don't know why, so you need a replacement.
Good Luck! thomseye

My sanyo tv was hit by a power surge.now it dosnt turn on. i have a 27 inch sanyo tv


You have a power supply issue on the main board of your set. This is not an easy fix for a home owner, Your best bet is to call a service shop and get a price quote. Tearing into tv's is very dangerous! High voltage is present even when unplugged! Good luck!

Digital or not digital


this tv has no digital tuner built in to it. In order to recieve a digital broadcast the tuner must be atsc compliant. The best solution is to get a converter box to decode digital to analog signal.
