Question about Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

We had a really bad storm yesterday with a lot of lightning. our power flickerd on and off a couple times but all of our electronics are plugged into surge protectors. everything in our house is working normally but we can't get our sharp aquos LC-46D62U to turn on at all. there are no blinking lights, no sounds, nothing. i've tried unplugging for a few minutes and then plugging back in and still nothing. i've tried changing outlets and nothing happens when i try that either. this t.v. isn't even 3 years old and we've never had any issues up until now. it was just working perfectly the night before!! help!

What does it mean when one reads FD in the panel and the lights on the panel aren't stable?


The control board to your range may have been damaged because of the lightning storm. It happens when lightning strikes a power line and sends a surge of power to your home. This large current surge can easily damage electronic circuits. More often than not if a device is on and lightning strikes, that is when the device gets damaged. During large lightning storms it is best to turn off all electronic devices. The electricity going to your house is fine now and that is probably what your electrician checked.

lightning can do extensive damage to electronics equipment especially flat panel TV's. I would really recommend a professional diagnosis instead of board swapping. You could have several boards that are damaged!

My scanner stopped working yesterday. Tried everything and no luck. Its an MP830 and the printer works fine.


Did you have a storm or lightning? Try unplugging the power cable from the left rear of the machine (not the wall). I have had to do this on several occassions after storms. Good Luck!

Lightning Storm/Affinity Washer


During a lightning storm, a lightning strike could have induced a high voltage surge in your incoming power lines. Left unprotected from these power surges, the weakest link ( normally low voltage electronic controls) are the most susceptable. Just because you had power available at the wall receptacle after a storm doesn't mean that your washer control system wasn't exposed to one of these surges and got damaged. On the contrary, it is extremely likely that the washer took a 'hit' and was damaged.Other devices plugged into the same receptacle may have survived that hit because electricity travels the path of least resistance.. In this case.. that path may have been thru your washer.. My point being is that your washer could have sustained a power surge and was damaged so don't rule that out. Of course, that surge could have taken an internal fuse or other component out too..
