Question about Projection Televisions
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?

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..

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.
