Question about Vision HDV-42P2 Television

1 Answer

I was home watching television while we were having a thunderstorm out, there was lighting and thunder and it was pouring out, the power went out so did the TV. I can power up the TV you can hear it power on but the screen is blank not black but blank. The little red button lights up but the screen once again stays blank.

You may have fried one of your control boards in your TV. Sometimes these can be easy to fix. I recommend you take your unit to a repair shop and get a quote to repair it. Be sure to get a quote and don't just tell them to repair it. It may be cheaper to buy a new TV! Sometimes they will charge you just to troubleshoot your TV but that should be expected.

How do I fix my Vizio Television after a thunderstorm?


You TV was victim of power surge. You should take it to a qualified repair service to diagnose it, it it it can be repaired and if it's worth.
Curren flat panel electronic TVs are particularly sensible to power surge so it might be a good investment to use spike protectors.

Is there a reset button on tv? tv went out in a thunderstorm last night and will not come back on.


Hi Anne,
It is not a case of reset. The power supply section of your TV is damaged in the thunder storm. It is a common thing happening to TVs. Yes, sometimes, if you are lucky you escape with small damage like fuse and a few safety components. Otherwise you may have to replace the entire power board. Please consult some local TV tech,
Good Luck.

HELP! I think my TV got zapped and is ruined from storm!


Check whether the power outlet has power. If it has, I suggest please do not attempt to switch on the TV, unless checked by a qualified service technician.

Why do thunderstorms have heavy rain with them?


rain and thunder are two peas in the same pod. thunderstorm clouds also known as cumulonimbus are generally the clouds we know as rain bringers.

as water molecules rub together they creat static electricity. this is then discharged as lighting. the thunder you hear is the sound waves made by the lightingin caused by the water molecules.

so water rubs and makes electricity which makes thunder which is why thunderstoms have rain!

Tv turns on and then off


Good Day, ruschracing;

Storm? The first thing you should do is unplug the TV from the wall for 3 to 6 minutes (reset), then plug back into wall.

If that does not help, then you should call an authorized service center to give you an estimate for the repairs. OR call your home owners insurance company.

Good Luck, big IRISH.
