Might be the relay on the power board that stands up just behind the big transformer. I has a complete no power also, I shorted out the relay legs on the black one, it started to work again. I will probably replace it, since the problem started by the system shutting off randomly.

Probably not, but your insurance should pay if you have a renter or homeowner policy.

Check the fuses on the power supply board first. They usually blow when you get a power surge. You may be able to replace them and get the TV running for a few dollars. If the fuses are good then the power supply board will be the issue. The main board should not be damaged because the surge has to go through the power supply board first.

Stopped working after a storm


Did you have a power surge after a loss of power? If so your TV is ruined from the surge. In the future use a surge protector if don't already.

Repair or Junk my Samsung UN55C6500VF TV?


Hi William,
Not necessary to junk your TV. Damages due to lightning are extensive at times but from what you have mentioned it appears that may be it is only the power supply board which has gone bad and rest of the TV is ok. Replacing power board may restore your TV.
Good Luck.

Polaroid TLA-01511C stopped working after electrical storm. Will try to change fuse, if I can get to it. How do I access the fuse? NOT equipped mentally or with tools to do more.


Contact any service technician. The fuse can be located at itw main power regulator board inside. If the power supply regulator board is found faulty, it will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and precious time.

After a lightning storm, my TV will not turn on. Is there a fuse or something on the in coming power that may have blown causing it not to turn on?


Any TV subjected to a power surge will have problems. If you can remove the back cover, do so. Locate the glass fuse. In the best situations the fuse is clear and opened, and replacement will repair your TV. In worst cases the fuse may be blackened, and you will see that many components are burned and shattered. If this latter is true, only replacing the TV is your best bet. In many cases electronics may be connected to surge protectors, but lightning will over ride these devices and cause damage. I have seen this happen many times.Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

No power (dead after a lightning storm hit the house. Tried replacing the two power circuit boards and have a current going in and all around all circuit boards. Still no sign of life when plugged in...


If its after a lightning storm, it really could be anything. Your mainboard could quite possibly be shot. In fact almost anything in the TV could be damaged by a big surge. It could even be that your backlights went out from the surge too.

Does your power LED come on? What is it connected to? Directly to the power board or is it connected to the mainboard? If you have current through all the circuit boards, you may have a burnt tuner or chip on the mainboard.

Might not be worth fixing depending on the size/model. If its a big LCD, you could probably get a good deal on a working one of the same size with a broken LCD panel (~$100). Then you can just replace the broken LCD panel with yours and you have a fixed TV.

My tv went dead during a lightning storm. I heard


The sound could have come from one of your power capacitors. You could tell if one of them is no longer operational by looking at them; they will be burned, or blistered, or will be bulging. If this is a CRT type of TV ensure that you only look inside if you are fully aware of how to deal with the lethal voltages that are stored on the inside of the unit.

You will need to replace the convergence chips located inside the set. Typically a repair shop will charge 150-250 to fix it. Good luck
