About a week ago there was a lightning strike near my house. Both my TV and my DVD recorder went out. The surge must have come through the cable, because none of the other stuff was hurt that was connected to the TV. I junked the TV, but have kept the recorder. Last night I pulled it apart because I was told to check the fuse. I found one fuse near the power cord, but that looked fine.
Would it be possible to fix this thing? Could I do it myself, I have a multimeter, but only understand the volts part of it, and even that not very well. Are there other fuses that might have blown, I looked and didn’t see any, but the part where the cable comes in is in a box. What else can I look for, or is it a total loss?
I’ve figured that since it’s already gone I can’t screw things up any worse so maybe I can learn something.
