Customer Question
We have a KDL-32M4000 Tv...
We have a KDL-32M4000 Tv about two years old. We had a lighting store last night and a house across the street was struck. The TV I was watching in the Kitchen is fine. But for some reason the Sony Tv in the master bedroom that has a surge protector does not work? We have four other TV's that also work. We have one other Tv downstairs that also does not work today.

My question is the Sony Tv worth having someone check it out? Or is the Tv just junk now?

How hard would it be to determine if the fuse is blown?

 

Would I be able to recognize the fuse if i removed the back on the TV?

TV Technician: Anthony F., Owner of TV Service Center replied 8 years ago
not if they are ceramic
you will need a meter to test the fuse
yes they look like fuses
