The audio transmits, but no video. . .

This happened after a power outage, could have been a surge on the home base power supply or through the cable TV box attached, after power was restored.

Check all cable and connection first, try unplugging battery for five minutes, you may need to replace the cables to the display.

    Forget about the battery, I mixed your model with an handheld tv.

    In your case leave the TV unplugged for one hour or more.
    When TVs get stuck after a power surge , that is becauso of the internal protection circuit, that keep the TV off.

    You often fix it by unplugging the power cord for a couple of hours, this will drain power from the set completely, and reset the internal circuits.

    If that does not work , that means that the power surge had blown something inside the computer (typically power supply problems) , and you need a technician to find the faulty part.

How do I repair it after power outage?

Power outage will not damage set. If it was a power surge then perhaps the power supply board got toasted and is in need of assistance to restore operation of your set.

U have no audio and no video which tells you that it has to be something that both systems have in common - the power supply.
Locate the PS board and check for blown fuse, burnt resistors, bad or bulging caps.

Why did cable box hdmi connection blow out my tv in power outage??

Yes it can happen. Though you can't prevent this 100% you can reduce the chance by getting a surge protector with coaxial protection as well. Lots of times the surge comes through the coax.Here is and example.

A security camera on top of our home was struck by lightening. The current ran through the camera cable to the power supply, into a surge protector (worthless), then throughout our home. It affected...

The surge likely came in thru the video input to the TV from the camera. In which case the Main board should be replaced. I have repaired numerous TVs with just Main boards only and not power supplies. This is not always the case but if the input device is fried and it is connected to the TVs Main Board, which has all the video and audio inputs, then that's the bad board. I personally have a nice 46" Sony LCD hanging in my master bedroom which this happened to. I spent $90 on a main board and ended up with a nice $1800 TV in my bedroom. Sweet Action !

I hate to tell you that this happened to me last week and mine is 18 months old. after calling toshiba and going through all troubleshooting, nothing worked. they referred me to a service center near me and the repair is $466!!!!! I have lots of power outages so they can seriously damage a tv (the motherboard to be specific). Mine is the 42 inch 535U. get a surge protector for your cable and ask your electric company to install a power shield on the meter or a surge arrester.. good luck.

No power

If you see a light on the front panel, is not the fuse but something else in the power supply circuit board or could also have damaged the main board due to the poor voltage regulation of these power supplies.

Tv won't come on

Sounds like the typical power surge created by the outage has caused a power supply problem inside your TV. IF that is it, there not much you can do yourself.
