Check for a reset button in the back. If a reset button is not present. Unplug the unit and take the back off. Look for a blown fuse on the motherboard. If the fuse is blown, replace it with a fuse with the EXACT same rating. Hopefully, the set will come back to life. If not and it blows again, it will need servicing as there may have been damage done to the power supply. You may be able to make a claim with your insurance company or the power company to get it fixed if the power surge was caused by the power company.

Today my power went out for a split second and came back on I turn my TV back on it makes a high pitched whining noise and the screen wont turn on. Cant add picture but model number is MW30G71.

unplug your tv. let it sit for a good bit. 1/2 hour did your power just go out or did you have a power surge then no power. surges cause the grid to go down for a second too and that causes problems too. surge protectors are good for everything. also are you on cable? if so have the cable company check they're filters into the house may be an issue but check the tv after a half hour unplgged and then plug in and turn on normally? sometimes it needs a reset time period before the fuses inside will reset themselves.

Why won't my Vizio TV power on ? No standby light or anything for that matter

Always check your plug first to see if it came unplugged from the wall. If plugged into a surge suppressor or other device between wall and TV power cord unplug from device and plug directly into the wall. If still no power make sure wall receptacle has power by using a tester or if none available plugging in a lamp. If no power at wall check for power switch on the wall. You should never plug a TV into a receptacle that works off a wall switch.
If you determine TV is plugged into a working power source and still no sign of life then the power module may be the culprit. You didn't say which model but most have a separate replaceable power module. It is not recommended to replace yourself, however, because you risk injury from shock. If you want to try it yourself get an inexpensive line tester to check the internal circuits. You will need schematics because it is unlikely modules are labeled.
If you find a bad module you can check with a company called ModusLink PTS, Inc. TV Board Repair and Replacement to repair it since you cannot replace most parts these days.

Buzzing tv after power surge

Get the estimate. When your insurance company sees it, believe me, they won't buck at replacing your TV _especially since the prices of TV's have come down over the years while the quality and resolution has skyrocketed. . .

Power went off while watching t.v. Power came back on and now t.v.won't come on.

Was the TV plugged in to a surge protector?
It may be fried if there was a surge in power, sometimes there may be a fuse you can replace in the tv, other times the TV itself may be a goner, best to check with the company that manufactured it or the store where you bought it

Keeps blowing fuse

You will probably be replacing boards left and right with a surge. I would make a claim with the insurance company, it's covered under most home owner's insurance.

Power Surge at Home

This time it came in on the cable, the clue was the cable box also blew. So if you had a cable surge supression device...for HDTV, I think you would have survived the second surge.

I do have the technology. It is a F-connector type and will handle HDTV signal.

Power outage then wont turn on

contact the power company to see what they will do for you they are responsible for power damage also the surge protection should have replacement warranty. may just be blow caps but take to a service center to have it looked at better yet have a service person come to your home to look into it.

TV Turns off

Mondern day television sets have to user serviceable parts inside them as they are all solid state and you will not ben able to look at a set and see something wrong. These sets you need specialized test equipment to troubleshoot relace and repair parts inside them. Your set suffered what alot of solid state electronics these days . A power surge will usually blow out the power supply section of a set and who knows what else. If your not a tech a TV set is not a place to be experimenting with anything .. best thing to do is call a tech to trouble shoot and give tyou an estimate. Now if you mailed in the Registration to the surge protector, and the tech writes down that this was all caused by a surge, then you shouldnt have any problems collecting what you laid out for a repair. The surge protector company,if the repair cost alot ,will contact the manufacturer to see how much the parts listed ncost and if these parts could go bad when a power surge to stop peeps from padding there bills. Make sure you get a complete itimized bill not just repaired power supply on a bill cause you wont get paid. Also make sure you call an authorized repair place for the manufacturer of your set. as its not 100% necassary, but much more legiter in the eyes of the power strip company. Good Luck
