If it was struck by lightning, the surge would completely fry the insides of your TV. Your TV probably won't work anymore and you may have to consider replacing it. Some TVs have accident warranties so something like this could be protected, but if not, you will have to purchase a new one.

Well, I have the same problem - I have a Vizio P50 HDM that died after 16 months of use (1 year warranty). I called Vizio and they gave me the number of their authorized service company. They told me that it was the YSUS board which would have to be replaced with the ZSUS board - $835.00 visit including parts. That was three months ago and they are still not here. This is a common problem - Do a Google search for the "Vizio Pop of Death". It seems most are not repairable and have to be replaced. Now I have a $2700 wall decoration. One idea might be to do a search on Ebay for the part number - More and more are showing up on Ebay from units with cracked screens - Good Luck. I was a component level TV tech for 20 years and will do this myself, probably with parts from Ebay. Some say they have had success taking it back to Costco or Sams, even after two years - If you got it at one of these stores, it wouldn't hurt to try.

I have the same tv at my place and I got Sears to come over and fix it. It cost me ~$90 for the initial visit then I ordered ~$140 part he recommended (voltage thing for crt) ordered and installed. He said that if that didn't work then he would have been able to return the part and it would have been the circuit board going out and that would have cost around $400 more. He said that if that were the case it wasn't worth it since you can buy one of these tvs used for around $500. The part he ordered worked on my tv and is doing fine.
I have an additional question though: is this tv HD ready for when all the signals change next year?

Warranty voider there.
Hate to see a $1,000 TV go down the toilet.
If your lucky, you can try checking the fuses inside the TV.
The lightning may have taking out only your power supply board, shopjimmy.com may have replacements for about $100. But, I can't tell you for sure that will fix the problem.
You may have to take to a repair shop to find out for sure.

Are you under warranty? Chances are real good that you need the signal board....the one with the rca jacks and rf connectors. This may be pricey $$$$$ but will surely repair the problem.
