Question about Sanyo DP42848 LCD TV

1 Answer

What spark gaps replace the ones in dp42848?

I got a "free" Sanyo tv from my neighbor who was throwing it away because it was struck by lightning. I managed to get it and took it apart to see what happened. I was thinking it was some blown capacitors or resistors. Well, it appears to be just one spark gap. Been looking for a week to find these parts to buy, but can't get a schematic, even from Sanyo. This little $2 part is all I need to fix this tv. Anyone know where I can get schematics or know of where they are sold? I appreciate any help!

SOURCE: In one week we have managed to break 2 Sanyo tv's?!

you are probably better off replacing the tv. unless you are a t.v. repair guy replaceing a screen might be difficult and if you do find a replacement it will probably be expensive.
