Question about Panasonic CT-36D11 36" TV
90 % of the time, when you get lightning damage to a tv set, its not worth repairing, because the chain reaction the surge causes. Its a matter of labor v cost of a new set. Ive seen brand new large screen tvs 1 week old get popped with lighyning and cause every board in the set to bur and blow out not only the printed circuit traces, but the ICs had holes in them and the transistors were blow apart. Luckly this customer had homeowners insurance and got a new set. With a lightning strick all you can do is start from the front of the power supply an work your way back till you get some life in the set. Now you could get lucky as I know panasonic uses whats called a thyristor type of a device that when a surge enters the set it shorts out the ac plug and pops the internal fuse and it will be black. You cant simply replace the fuse cause the thyrisistor is shorted. Also no one with no teleivision training should be inside a tv now a days as there are no user serviceable parts inside and theres way way more voltage inside these sets ,even unplugged then a dvd or satillite reciver. I would advise you to get a pro to assist you in this matter as it could if your lucky ,like i said before be a simple problem But i've seen peeps make a mountain out of a molehill. Good Luck
