i have vizio 60" e601i-a3. I was watching tv during an electrical storm and i think lighting zapped the tv. Everything works except the tv cannot find an lan. Internet apps are not working.
TV Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 1 year ago

Ok, try restarting your uverse modem/router.

Then check if the TV can find a LAN again.

If that doesn't work then the TV has likely suffered some damage and will require a repair.

No doubt it needs repair.. It has not worked for months. I need to know which piece might need to be replaced or maybe a part number. All the hdmi ports as well as the antennae work anbd everything else seems to function. Is their a bard that can be replaced that just controls the internet?
TV Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 1 year ago

It depends what damage has occurred.

If a lightning storm caused a power surge then multiple circuit boards may have failed inside the TV and it may not be recoverable.

A lot of troubleshooting will be required to test each board to see if it is fully functional or not.

Do you have schematic diagrams and test equipment available to do this?

If you want to take pot luck and replace a board then you can just try replacing the main board that includes the network connectivity.
