    I'm in the process of moving so the surge protector was packed up but I left the TV behind for a few extra days.

    Big storm last night and now the TV is DEAD DEAD DEAD.

    No light, no response from power button. Oh well, it was cheap so not worth fixing.

    Thinking about this one. 50" LG for $388

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/LG-Electron...D-LED-TV-TruMotion-120Hz-Refresh/391415433810

    or

    55" Sceptre 4K for $399

    On the power cord? No
    I think I paid 350 for the thing on a black Friday sale. Not worth claiming.

    Yup, the plug has power

    many black friday electronics were made cheap specifically for that sale.

    But how many thousands of dollars are you going to pay to have it hung on the wall?

    That happened to my DirecTV system last year. Took them weeks to get somebody out to fix it.

    Remember to dip the screwdriver into water to lube it up before making contact with anything metal.
