During a rainstorm, there was a power surge and the picture on the tv went out. However, the sound is fine and I can change the channels with the sound tuning in to the channel. There just is not any picture. What could be the problem?

unplug the tv and remove the back cover,locate fuses and see if there bad.if so and you replaced a bad fuse and the unit works consider yourself lucky and invest in a surge protector if you dont already have one.if no fuses are bad you have a bad board most likley the power supply board.theres a risk of live voltage so be careful.
im srry to tell you that you picture tube blew in you tv this can happen from many things as simple as a defective one .. to a bad power surge in your house ... if it is under warranty they will fix free of charge .. if not you'll have to get a new tv .. a new tv in most cases is cheaper then tryin to just by the tube .. oh and if its not under warranty .. you could always just say it surged and claim it on you home owners insurance =]
i have a rca television and my t.v. just cut off when i was looking at it and , when i tried to cut it back on, there was no sound and no picture and the power button did not want to cut off on it's on i had to unplug it.
Modern sets dont like power surges which is what happens when supply goes on & off.
I would think that something is damaged it will be expensive to repair.
My advice would be get A shop to check it for you If you can ask them to see if this problem in there opinion is due to power surge.
If you have house hold insurance new for old make A claim.
Check to source of power to TV. These unite's are very sensitive to changes in power. If it isn't get the proper power, it can effect the TV output. Computers are very sensitive to power fluctions and should be connected thru a battery backup, so that the power going to the sensitive electronics is filtered to prevent surges from effecting the output of the electronc device. It could be a microwave, refrigerator, Tv anything having electronic conponets.
hard to diagnose with out voltage measurements, first thing i would do is call insurance company and tell them you had a brown out and then the tv went out. a common problem with this tv is convergence amp ic's http://www.hdtvoice.com/voice/showthread.php?t=28929
