Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V3000 Television

1 Answer

Lightning strike hit TV coax cable, hdmi 1 in kdl-40v3000 damaged, can circuit board be replaced

The TV works well EXCEPT for HDMI 1 port, which is dead.. The HDMI 2 works correctly. A nearby lightning strike hit the coax cable and fried a part on the cable. I talked to the Comcast technician who was working on the cable to fix it. Is the HDMI 1 circuit board in the TV a user replaceable part, and if yes, how much does it cost? If it is a simple matter of pulling out the old circuit board and inserting a new one, I can handle that job. htgcol1@gmail.com

SOURCE: Sony Bravia television hdmi stopped working

Installing a new software update will this issue. All you need is a compatible USB flash drive. Go to support on Sony.com. Look up your tv model and if there is an update, just follow the instructions to install it yourself. I have a KDL-46S5100 and this worked great. The download and instructions page I used was : http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?upd_id=4769#install

I have the same problem did you ever find a solution

SOURCE: Sony KDL-52V5100, HDMI 1 shows

I had this tv for almost a year, and I experienced this exact same problem about 3 or 4 times. The only thing you can do is turn the tv off and unplug it for a couple minutes. When you plug it back in it will work. This issue along with the intermittent sound issue on HDMI fed sources drove me crazy until I exchanged my tv for a KDL-52EX700. So glad to be done dealing with Sony customer support...because they're TERRIBLE. I had to email a VP at sony to get any results. The picture is beautiful on the V5100 for a lcd, but it's not worth dealing with the other issues...it's a flawed model. Hopefully your tv is still under warranty...you will have to call Sony and tell them your problem. They'll send a tech to come out, and he'll probably change out the motherboard..it won't fix anything. Then they'll probably send a tech out again to do the same thing when you keep calling...eventually they'll offer you an exchange. That's how it went for me...it was a 7 month nightmare.

Would replacing the main board fix my TV?


We can't predict what might have been happened during a lightning strike. If the TV is dead now; the main power supply regulator board [SMPS] board is fault. If so, you have to replace it first. then only we can get information about the condition of the main board. If the TV was connected to external Ariel or cable; before the lightning stroke; the possibility to damage to the main board too is there upto 80%.
In fact, if both of this boards are damaged, it might cost around 2/3rd of the total cost of a new TV.
The decision left to you. Do whatever you want.

Will a nearby lightning strike cause a power board failure?


It could happen yes it would depend where the strike entered the TV. Not all lighting strikes hit on the electrical lines, on a TV they can come through the cable, as well as a antenna if you have one hooked up.

Power surge caused by lightning strike, TV is dead, any Thoughtd/ does this damage every components?


Lightning can cause serious damage. You will surely want to get a professional diagnoses. What is damaged depends on where the surge came in at, and the intensity of the surge. If the surge came in through the power cable, most likely your power supply board has damage. But I have seen situations where the surge came in though an HDMI or coax connection and just take out the main board. But the moral of the story is to get a proper diagnoses, you could have several boards damaged.

Only one (out of four total) HDMI input is working on my set.


The HDMI switcher IC chips in TVs can be damaged but lighting hits near you house even if the power is protected with a surge protector. The damaging power comes in through the HDMI port and blows the chip out and it can affect just one port or multiple HDMI ports. Your best bet would be to just get a cheap HDMI switcher and use the one working port. The repair on the TV would require placing the control board and would run from $75-150 for parts plus the labor to install it.

Panasonic Plasma TH-42PZ80U HDMI do not work after lightning storm


I don't have a solution, unfortunately, but your problem is nearly identical to mine. It even seems to have happened on the same date (7/27/12)! Do you live near Dener by chance? Anyway, we have Direct Tv, and ended up with 2 fried HD DVR boxes and 2 TVs on which the HDMI connections don't work after lightning hit close to our house on 7/27. Those boxes were replaced, as was part of the Direct TV dish. The only difference is, whereas on one TV component connections (red/white/yellow cables) allowed the TV to work normally, on the other (my 50 inch Panasonic Plasma TCP50S30) even the red/white/yellow cables did not work. Now I'm scouting the net for tips on what else to try before I possibly have the Panasonic looked at, which I am hedging on doing since I got it for only $600 new in the first place. Have you found out anything else since you posted this? Good luck to you...

#1 HDMI port dead is there an easy fix?


Looks like this port has gone bad. Just keep adjusting with the other inputs and if necessary get a input sharing multi-switch to select input. If the TV gets some other major problems in future, you can have the technician attend to this port problem also along with it.

I had a nearby lightning strike. Now I get "no


Hi
Just try with component input, and see whether it works fine. If it works fine with component input, the tuner section in your TV has got damaged. Soem Vizio sets will have dual tuner; one for analogue and the other for digital. Lighning stroke will damage the tuners first, than any other components inside a TV, because it has been alway connected to cable. Check the component video. If it also does not work, the mother board of your TV is faulty. Some type of fault will be repairable. If the fault is serious, you have to replace its main board istself. OK.
