Tv dead during lightning


Could be minor or maybe done for but here goes. Some flat panel TVs have the main power cord with one of those small transformers built into the plug end that converts 120volt ac to DC power. Output voltage should be listed on the transformer tag. You need to find someone with a voltage tester and see if the TV plug end is showing DC voltage. If not the complete power cord needs replaced. If that checks out-- the next thing is to remove the complete TV back cover and look for fuses right near the power plugs into the TV. The fuses should blow out first from a lighting surge. The problem is how much of a surge you got. It may have damaged the power supply board in the TV which may need replaced. Hope this helps

Power surge caused by lightning strike, TV is dead, any Thoughtd/ does this damage every components?


Lightning can cause serious damage. You will surely want to get a professional diagnoses. What is damaged depends on where the surge came in at, and the intensity of the surge. If the surge came in through the power cable, most likely your power supply board has damage. But I have seen situations where the surge came in though an HDMI or coax connection and just take out the main board. But the moral of the story is to get a proper diagnoses, you could have several boards damaged.

How do I trouble shoot a tv struck by lightening ?


That is a tricky question, lightning can cause minor to severe damage. If the TV is completely dead, the power supply board will be the first order of things to check, if fuse is open chances are there will be damaged parts and open foil. If fuse blows, board replacement would be the next step, however the risk is will it work, lightning may take 1to 3 boards for example and the unfortuneate thing is you must sub boards until it works.

Sanyo DSs31820 dead after lightning storm. Is there a master reset?


A lightning storm will destroy a TV in many cases. I have repaired very few, with this problem. I would certainly find a new TV, if this is the case for sure. Thanks for asking!

My 62 inch mitsubishi tv was hit by lighting


Try to find a local repair centre & ask if they can give you an estimate on the cost to repair. A lightning strike can cause either minor damage such as just an internal fuse blown or can cause severe damage which will wipe out entire circuit boards which can be a costly repair. In this case it's usually not worth repairing.
