If the set is more then a few years old most likly woundny pay to fix. Find out how much it will cost for an estimate and you be the judge on the repair. A 113inch vcr combo cost only around a 100 bucks or so. Good luck

Hello. I have a RCA flat screen tv that lightning hit it through the cable wire but the tv was plug out. Is there by any chance the tv can be repaired?

lightning provides HUGE power surge to electronic components. it is very likely that your TV is now a paperweight.
call a tv repair shop in your area and have them take a look. Usually the initial evaluation is no charge, but call and see.

My TV we belive was affected by lightning. The TV was connected in a small Monster surge protector with a VCR. The VCR was unscathed but the TV will not power up or turn on. I read there could be a fuse...

There has to be some form of a fuse that is in the AC power line, it may be a square ceramic fuse or a regular cartridge fuse, chances are its blown if the set is dead after a lightning storm, unfortunately if you replace it there is a really good chance it will blow again, if it does then the rectifier diodes would be shorted and need replacing or you could replace the power supply if your unable to repair it yourself

Sumsung 40'' LCD Hit By Lightning

If it's been the subjest of a lightening strike chances are the saw tooth capacitor is opened and the main fuse. That's a cheap repair even at a good shop... At the very worst they can diagnose the problem for an estimate and that fee is generally worth the money even if that's not the entire problem.

Lightning strike

Lightning hits do some nasty damage to electronics.
Alot of times that type of repair is part of an insurance claim. The insurance company requires estimates and will repair them up to the cost of replacement.

If you arent dealing with an insurance claim on this I'd still recommend a professional estimate.
Lightning damage sometimes is confined to the power supply and once repaired could be fine bit in my experience most items that take a nasty hit are a write off.

Lightning hit last night tv won't work cable company says it's in the television

Sorry to here about your problem! This is the time of year I used to get tons and tons of sets, stereos ,games, and vcrs in for repair. On your panasonic it seems that maybe the surge took out the tuner portion or the power supply. It sould cost aprox. 200 bucks or so for a new tuner. Im sure your aware that homeowners will cover almost all repair after the deductable. Good Luck
