The only fix is to replace the panel and that would not be cost effective. It would be cheaper to buy a new TV.

Sony bravia lcd won't power on after lightning strike


I am sure the tv is shot from the surge but you can check a few things. I would take the tv apart and test the power supply first. Look for obvious burn damage throughout the boards. If there is a blackened one (prob video board) then you can try to replace that. Don't worry about taking this apart and breaking it further. In this case it can only get better for you.

My flat screen tv shuts off and standby led blinks 13 times.


Our $2700 less than 3 year old Sony LCD KDL-40XBR5 did the same thing 2 weeks ago. Sony was anything but helpful. They said to take it to a repair shop or we could send them $550 and they would replace it with a $800 set. Repairman says that it is a panel and the part has been discontinued by Sony. The 46" sets had the same problem and were recalled but not the 40" screen. We stopped on the way home and purchased a 40"
