Louie, and I have a 37" 6-7 yr old flat screen Samsung TV

Louie, My name is ***** ***** I have a 37" 6-7 yr old flat screen Samsung TV which was plugged in to a surge protector along with my AT&T cable box and other equipment. The TV was also plugged into the AT&T cable from the wall. During a thunderstorm a couple of weeks ago, the TV went blank and I have not had a picture since, though the red light is visible on the front of the TV. I checked all of the normal cable checklist things and even disconnected the TV and still got no picture or sound. Is it dead? Fixable at a reasonable price? Or would I be better off buying a new TV?

I have a Sharp Aquos (31 inch?) big screen TV. It worked

Hello. I have a Sharp Aquos (31 inch?) big screen TV. It worked fine yesterday, but suddenly today I can't turn it on. I've tried the remote, the button on the box and the buttons on top of the screen and nothing works. I know I am getting power because the red light is on. i just can't get the green light to work.This is absolutely the very last thing I needed to happen today! Can you please help me?Thanks. David
