|No power. No clicking. No blinking lights. Checked 3 buss fuses on P-board. Fuses OK. AC to P-board OK.
Had lighting strike. Nothing looks burnt. OTA cable was connected to RF input. I did have a PS3 connected to the HDMI. I lost the PS3. I believe I lost the PS3 from the router via the modem that came from the phone lines. I lost all that equipment.
It definitely came in on the phone lines and I believe the antenna. I'm pretty sure the lighting didn't come in to the power source.
I'm suspecting the main board but not sure how to identify that for sure.
NOTE: The TV was off at the time of the storm.
"Analog Devices" chip is burnt. Small burn mark in the center. Don't know how I missed this. I think the numbers on the chip are ADV7495B, BSTZ-170.
I'm hoping that this is the only card that was affected. If the surge came in on the "Panasonic ENGE6604KF Tuner" (part of the Main Board), while off, does anyone know what the likely hood is that everything else is ok? Is there a way of checking the power board without this board connected?
