Your luck seems to be holding - bad. I checked and found the Protron name belong(s) or (ed) to Spectroniq and neither of the two websites are up anymore.
Also, I could probably make a zapped supply work again but you do not know what might have been damaged downstream from it and that is a good possibility; the damage may be much deeper than it appears since many of the integrated circuits used in modern equipment don't tolerate hundred (or thousand) volt spikes and without a working supply, there is little chance of diagnosing it unless a service department has a few lab-type power supplies and can simulate the failed original supply.
If you do find anyone who has stock on assemblies for this TV, you may find more than one part number on the board. If it is a number that seems to be under clear lacquer, it is likely only the bare board number. If it seems to be stamped on or has a label with a number on it, this is going to be the whole part number for the 'stuffed' board. 
I can't help you with this one but I would suggest, especially if you live in a lightning-prone area to consider installing a 'whole house' surge protector. They do cost a couple of hundred US dollars plus installation charges, but the established companies even include an insurance policy that covers $10,000-25,000 in damages. If you own your home, it's your decision and I cannot imagine any landlord would object to having you install one at your own expense.

Why does my tv turn on then off , on, off continuosly by its self an wont stop


Electrical storms can damage components. Are you insured?

When you get the TV fixed/replaced, buy some surge protectors or a UPS (uninteruptable power supply) to protect the rest of your gear.

Insignia quit working after storm


Check the fuses on the power supply board first. They usually blow when you get a power surge. You may be able to replace them and get the TV running for a few dollars. If the fuses are good then the power supply board will be the issue. The main board should not be damaged because the surge has to go through the power supply board first.

Vizio plasma tv will not turn on by button or remote, cable box is lit. We had a loss of power last night due to a storm. What do we do to check it.


hi usually the cause of won't power on problem due to the storm is the current fluctuation which the tendency is power supply failure. now since totally dead set what you need is to open the tv unit then look for the power supply where the power cord is connected. check obvious defective component part like blown fuse and burnt part like resistor and capacitor. just replaced with the same value and ratings to avoid damage from others component.if their is no problem with the power supply the output voltages are good the main board get damaged. good luck thanks for consulting the fixya.

Storm hit and does not work


The problem of your tv is the power supply, when power supply is damage by thunder storm it is already hard to repair sometimes it can be repaired but it will only takes week or month then it will shut down again. You should replace it with a new one, if you order a new power supply it has a warranty.

Your reasoning about the switch mode power supply being damaged is probably right.
Bear in mind that this power supply may not be the only thing that may be damaged in your computer.
You won't know for sure until you borrow a power supply and install it into your computer to see if it will work again.

Yes, we had a cracker of a storm to pardon the pun!
There is likely to be serious damage to the power supply. There may not be but there might.
Check your house insurance and see if you have storm damage. If you have submit a claim and go buy a new one, if not find a manufacturer authorised agent and get an estimate.

No power to unit after storm and power failure


HI!

Its most likely damaged the Power supply and the main board!What people do is buy a new power supply and when they get home it still wont turn on!It will be cheaper buying or claiming one from the insurance than having that one fixed!!

Good Luck!!

We had a storm and now the wii will not even turn on.


Was the Wii running while the storm was going on? Was it a lightning storm? If the answer is yes to eaither one of these then most likely there was a power surge and the power supply and / or motherboard has been damaged
