Question about Sanyo DS27930 27" TV

TV Doesn't Work

I got this TV for free from a friend of mine and he told me it doesn't work since it had been struck by lightning. He also said it was repairable, and rather than paying $100+ to have someone fix it, I was wondering if there were any ways I could fix it myself?

Probably just a blown fuse. You can go to www.samswebsite.com and download Photofact #4918 for this set to get the schematic and troubleshooting tips for $20. Since the relay is not picking up, the fault is probably in the standby power supply and thus you would not be getting any power to the rectifier bridge to begin with. I do not see to many Sanyos and therefore my tech library on that brand is limited and I can't provide more spscific advice. Later!

How do you know expert if the relays getting any power? I work on alot of sanyo and NEVER had one with just a blown fuse when hit by lightning! As a matter of fact NONE of the many many sets I fixed in the lighning capital ever had just a blown fuse. First off this person has no know how to work on TV sets or they wouldnt be asking,second A TV set is no place to be experimenting inside of. and third you must know basic electronics and know how to use a mutimeter, check resistors, capacitors with a Good capacitor esr type meter, and use of an ocilisciope.. If the peep that owns the TV set has no training they should seek out a trained tech to assist them on this. After all would you work on a 140,000 volt main feeder on a tower if you had no clue what to do????

At least look at the main AC fuse (F1) in the power supply module, and also look to see if any of the MOV's has blown.

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.

TV was struck by lightning

If it was struck by lightning, the surge would completely fry the insides of your TV. Your TV probably won't work anymore and you may have to consider replacing it. Some TVs have accident warranties so something like this could be protected, but if not, you will have to purchase a new one.
