TV won't turn on after electrical storm

I have a Toshiba 3x32H60 television. We were away for the weekend and did not unplug the television. There is also a DVD player, lights etc. plugged in to the same room and socket. When we returned we found we couldn't turn the tv on, but we could turn on everything else. We were told while we were gone that we had several electrical storms. Am I to assume that's the problem? Is there anyway to fix the television if it was zapped?

    I witnessed my TV blackout during an electrical storm with a very nearby strike. It now won't turn on but makes a hum when plugged in. Otherwise totally non-functional. I am assuming it is fried and not worth fixing since it is an old JVC 32" tube TV which still gave a very nice picture (AV-32730).

If it was on a surge protected plug-in that would not have happened to you. Is your television on warranty?

Just as our modern sets can remember user settings when the AC goes off, they well may record error conditions for an extended length of time too just as our cars do. Flash memory (used in such applications and only type used in digital cameras for example) can keep information for a very long time. Even if not used in your set, there is surely backup provisions that can keep info handy for days and possibly weeks by using components that mimic batteries to retain even standard memory for weeks.
Most PCs have provisions for discharging this kind of circuit which then resets possible stored error conditions and returns stored values to factory conditions.
Feel lucky this time I'd say.

Testimonial: "This explaination made perfect sense for why the error message was erased. Do you think the power going off caused the error message?"

Toshiba tv won't turn off/ stay on


Try unplugging your television for a half an hour or so. It might reset to original settings, Your problem might be input lock features. If you can get to the menu after unplugging your tv for awhile we might be on the right track. I'm just looking thru a Toshiba manual that I have.

If your TV has a reset switch on the back, use it. If not, Unplug the TV, hold the power button down for 30 seconds, let it go and remain unplugged for another 5 minutes or so.
Plug it back in, and see what happens. Try changing the inputs/channels/etc to see what happens. If you're still having this issue, Take your TV in for repair.

- Sidenote, a $25 power bar with built in protection curcuits are the easiest way to protect your equipment from this kind of thing, and quite a bit cheaper than forking over $300 for a new TV everytime there's thinder and lighting.

Blinking light wont turn on Toshiba TV CE19H15


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.
