I would need more details on this problem. Does the tv turn on? If so, what do you see on the screen? If you mean by "zapped" that the tv received a lightning strike and does not turn on, it's possible there are several damaged circuit board components. Depending on the severity of the strike, it's possible that just the fuse is blown. I need more details to advise further.

Products powered by electricity
should be serviced or repaired only by experienced professional technicians.
Any attempt to service or repair the product by anyone else could result in
serious injury or death. If
you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock.Instead, contact
the nearest service centre.
I am sure you had some strong static electricity. The static spark arced to inside of the TV in to the circuit board. Many of the low cost TV sets have poor static electricity protection.
In most cases there is damaged caused by static shock to electronic devices.
Just for curiosity, you can try unplugging the set from the AC mins and plugging it back in to do a simple reset, in case there is no damage and some logic device became hung up.
Last year I picked up my mobile phone and got a static shock from it. I had to get a new phone. This phone never worked again!
That my friend is the high voltage transformer with a tiny pin hole allowing the high voltage to arc to ground. The red wire going to the picture tube is carrying 30 thousand volts to the anode connection on the CRT. This is not a consumer replaceable part as the CRT can retain healty voltages even when off. Refer to a local TV technician.
Invest in a long poking stick....... Either the Infrared receiver or controller it blew out. The high amount of static electricity formed and must of jumped off by the infrared receiver causing a momentary short in the circuit board. Safety's shut the tv down before frying, but damage looks to be done. It can be fixed, but only cheap if only the infrared receiver was damaged, anything else and it's going to be pricey.
