your problem is a more technical problem you will need a tech to look at your set if you are not a tech you wont be able to do it your self. contact a tech to repair your set the problem is in the power supply or related circuit.good luck.

Yes, it's quite possible that you indeed may have sufferd from a Power Spike, induced by lightning during the storm, esspecially if plugged in during said storm. I have had quite a few customers ova the years with this exact problem. I always advise my clients to unplug ALL devices during a storm, and for ones that simply cannot be unplugged then some sort of Spike/Surge Protection device MUST be used. As a matter of interest, I have written many a report to insurance companies to support a claim for a replacement.

This sounds like a power supply problem, visually check the fuses and if they look ok, and you have a backgroud in electronics test to see if the set is prducing Dc voltage, you will need a multimeter and a schematic to do this with. However, if you do not have a background in electronics please take the set to a qualifide TV repair shop to have the repairs done.
I hope this helps.

This set is full of safety circuits that can cause this. It is really hard to say because anything can cause that. Have a shop check it out for you. Thanks for using fixya.

It may be a failure of the transistor that drives the flyback which would be much cheaper, easier, to source and replace. You really need at least a multimeter to check the transistor; checking the flyback requires a different instrument not commonly found at home. The precautions previously mentioned apply since the HV circuit may not be at fault meaning there could well be high voltage at the described terminal.
