    i realise this could be more a electrician's forum question but I'm guessing someone on this forum will know what's happened...

    long story short, a lamp blew up in the lounge tripping some electrics in the house.

    Power restored but no picture on lounge TV (although the screen does function because it shows HDMI1 and other standard mesages) but not showing pitcures from Sky box. Sound is fine but that is through the amp.

    Funny thing is the lounge TV was not on at the time of the possible surge(?). The TV in the kitchen was on and it takes its picture via HDMI splitter from the lounge TV.

    Could there have been a surge from the TV in the kitchen to the Tv in the loung or the Sky box causing this loss of Sky picture?

    Any ideas?

    Addendum: just about to post this and the TV has twice cut out before turning itslef back on...eeek

    thanks for any advice, Cal

    Electricians do electrics, they don't do TV repairs.

    Have you tried the Sky box straight into the Tv without the splitter or via a scart lead?
