I have a 51" JVC HD TV that is about 3 years old. Recently lightning struck my home and now I have sound but no picture. Is this set worth fixing and any ballpark figure on repair?

Lightning strikes are always tough because there is often hidden damage. By that I mean that the lifetime of some of the components might be shortened.That being said however, I would invest in a detailed repair estimate. Report the results here and we can help guide you from there. Without seeing the unit itself, remote diagnosis, especially in this type of situation, is tricky at best. You would be wise to have the actual unit examined. For a set of this size and age, the estimate is worth it.

The sound suddenly went out on our JVC HD52Z575, that is about seven years old and otherwise works well.


The sound board is gone.... it's not worth it to repair. Just use the analog audio out from the TV to the external audio system. that's what I do on mine.

Those links all contain service manuals, your exact unit will be one of them...
I think, though, you will have to get a "Quote" for a repair.

Tv struck by lightning


You wont be able to fix the TV your self as the power circuit board may have blown - consult a qualified repair man. Buying a surge protector for your expensive electronic goods is highly recommended.

Picture getting darker


first thing i would look at is it is probabily dust on the lences and miror, you need to take the screws out all the way arount the screen from the back, then lean the screen out tward you from the front, do this while the tv is on, you will be able to see the dust alot better, take a soft cloth and glass cleaner and clean little miror, and lences

NO PICTURE OR SOUND


Hi
Usually, if the red light is flashing and you get no picture, that means that the lamp life cycle is finished and you'll have to get a replacment lamp. the lamp has about 3000 hours of life (2 to 3 years under nomal use).

You can buy a replacment lamp from here

HITACHI 51F59 51 " TV -- NO SOUND NO PICTURE


If it is only a few days over the warranty call immedieatly, if it is much over that then these newer Hitachis are in my opinion not worth repair, and I mean the newer under $1000 units the parts are near the origianl cost sometimes.
