Question about Acer Aspire 3004LCi Notebook

1 Answer

My computer is dead

My computer got struck by a lightning I believe because after the strike its no longer functioning. My question is, what specifically should I repair or replace? Somebody said it's the motherboard. If this is true where can I purchase? Or can you give me specifically the replacement? My processor is AMD Sempron 3100+. Please help. Thank you so much.

This will be like a needle in a haystack. It could of fried the board, the processor, the hdd and so on, unless you are equiped with all sorts of spares, i would put the responsibility on a local repairer, but that's not to say they won't charge you for every part until the come to the faulty part themselves.

Sony Bravia KDl-55EX720 Struck by lightning.Red light shines.Nothing else works.

Claim on your insurance. lightning strikes reach voltages higher than a PCB (printed Circuit Board ) can handle. most of the chips inside will probably be bits of burnt glass now.

We had a tree struck by lightning last night. Now, our truck and sports car, parked 10 feet away, are both showing problems with charging system, (truck) and ABS, tracking system, and active handling...

Yes. Although the tires are suppose to insulate, there is enough humidity to allow the air to carry a charge. The ECM for example, can be interfered with by Radio frequencies. A lightning strike produces all kinds of freqencies beyond visible light.

You should document the tree strike and park your vehicles back into their spots if you do not already have photos of the tree damage showing the vehicles in the foreground or background.

This is comprehensive coverage with hidden damage discovered within a recent timeframe of the original event.

Since lightning struck the house the CM1312 is dead. I looked inside and the main fuses are okay. Any suggestions?

Call your insurance company and put in a claim.
If it is under warranty call HP.

Tv hooked to cable system and next door neighbor had a lightening strike. After that, the tv does not work any longer--no power light at all.!

Your TV got fried when the lightning struck. Time to get another one.

This time be sure you plug it into a surge protector power bar, available at radio shack, walmart, any TV or computer store.

After lightning struck in my backyard, printer won't turn on.

HI, this was an unfortunate surge that has fried the power board Assembly in this unit. it has also fried the main control. this may be a total loss unless, you are considering replacing the entire mother board and power assembly as well.

Replacing the main control board and power board will restore proper function.

Sony KV-20FV12 channel will not change

Pasted from another message I just posted-

It may be too late for this advice, but if you live in a lightning prone area, you should consider having a 'whole house surge protector' installed.
The cost should be well under $300 (a lot less if you install it) and with the included insurance (most often for $25,000) it is a good investment.

If your house was struck, I'm surprised you don't have a list of things that no longer work.
No, I don't think it is worth the cost of a repair, if you can even find someone to do it for you.

Dead SA-HE 100

hi due to it being lightnig strike their could be that much wrong with it that you might never find the problem.
If you are going to try and repair it then your going to need a multimeter and also get hold of the schematics so you can follow them and for any part numbers you might need.
The chances are its going to be several blown resistors because the lightning strike causing power surge so i would start looking around the board where the power lead goes into the board this would be a good place to start testing

Lightning Strike?

Assuming this line is across the screen horizontally (side to side), this means the vertical deflection circuitry is dead. In late model sets, there is a Integrated circuit package which drives the vertical yoke coils. Possible defects: the I.C. itself, bad solder connections where it solders to the board, missing voltage source to this I.C. (often around +24 volts), or a bad electrolytic capacitor in the associated circuitry. This latter often results in a non-linear picture, or less than full deflection condition, rather than a thin line only. It is possible lightning caused this problem, (I've seen some rather illogical damage from lightning ) perhaps it produced enough of a surge to pop the I.C. or a fusible resistor in that voltage source noted above.
