TV hit by Lightening, A wii was also in same receptacle, ruined it, also

This TV was hit by lightening. Turn it on and it does nothing. Is there any possibility it can be repaired? I checked the cord, it is OK. There was also a fuse I checked, it was OK. The on off switch was OK with an ohmeter. Do you have any idea of repairs and estimate?

TV's have motherboards just like computers. Most likely a small capciter was burned out. You can get a new motherboard for $300-$500 from the manufactuer.

Why won't my TV turn on after a storm?

Your TV might very easily be destroyed now, from lightening damage. Lightening can come in on the cable, on the power line, all sorts of unexpected ways. I've personally been struck by lightening, plenty hard enough to destroy almost any electronic device... and I was working in a basement at the time.

What to do on bravia hit by lightning

If the TV sustained a direct lightening surge, it probably is fried. Does it turn on, or is there any sign of it working at all, or is the TV totally dead? I suggest the house wiring and receptacle be inspected for any surge damage.

Our garage door opener has been hit by lightening 3 times. It is a Liftmaster 2220 - screw drive. The repairman says it hits the eyes and travels to the logicboard and ruins it. We have replaced it 3...

Is your house being hit by lightning? If so, there is nothing you can do.
If not, it could be a spike in the electrical service as well, I think. Try installing a high rated surge protector on the plug end. Some even have a guarantee that if the equipment protected gets damaged, they will pay for repair.

Let me know,

How can we tell if our tv was hit by lightening,nothing else in the house was damaged but after a storm our tv stopped working??

You may have blown the fuse. From now on, please keep all electronics on a power surge protector.

Sanyo HT27547 tv - lightening came in on coax line

Ther is probably a fuse and a diode that got hit by the lighting. If you want to try to fix it yourself unplug it check the fuse and change it if it is bad. Then turn it on again. If it blows that fuse then a diode is also out.
