Customer Question
My Hitachi TV (LE42S605) failed...
My Hitachi TV (LE42S605) failed immediately after a lightning storm. I have removed the
back but, of course, can see no evidence of the cause of the failure. Is their one component that would be most vulnerable to a lightning strike? Where would I go to purchase that part?
