Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi , I`m JackPerhaps I can help you with this problem , a few questions coming up and please note that it may take a few minutes between replies;
Is the power light blinking at the front ?
What is the tv doing now if anything ?Is there a light or clicking sound from inside when you plug in the power cord or try to turn it on ?
Or is it totally dead ?
O.k and you said this happened at the same time as a power surge ?
O.k then you have a defective power board now , this is usually what will fail if anything does during a power surge , the tv doesn`t have to be on , the power supply is always online .
If you are into repairing this yourself i will find it for you
No problem , if that is not your cup of tea so to speak then to have this repaired at home could cost you around $250 to $300 parts included and perhaps $50 less if you take it to the shop yourself .
If you need to find repair shops near you then look at the link below and enter your zip code ;www.tvrepairpros.comThis will give you a list of NESDA member repair shops in your area.This list may be limited though and you may find more by simply using the yellow pages or simply google "tv repairs" and the name of your town .You could give a call to different shops in your area to get an idea of their rates , it pays to shop around.
