Had power outage and after hitting reset button green light blink

Hard to say without looking and sniffing!

But if you suspect that it is and it is likely, you may be able to get it repaired on your insurance policy. It should be covered under FUSION

Dont mention the lightning but check your policy. Then get the repair guy to write fusion problem on the receipt and submit for claim.

Had a power outage while watching tv. Then 3 blinking lights.

This is an on-going problem with DLP sets. Normally you shut the set off and the cooling fan cools the lamp down and then it shuts off. In your case, of which it's not your fault, however your lamp has taken a major hit by not properly cooling down, in turn, you need to replace your lamp at this time.
I suggest in the future if you have an electrical storm and a chance of a power outage while your watching tv, I would'nt play that model or any other model of a DLP set.

TV won't work after storm

ok lets try this hit the power button on the DVD player some go into stand by mode and when power is interrupted you have to push the button manually also reset the surge protector next get a lamp that you know works and unplug the tv and plug the lamp into the socket where the TV was plugged into turn on the lamp, does it turn on? yes then something wrong with TV again may have been in stand by mode plug back in and try pushing the power switch on make sure the TV if it has a remote is on the right im put to get a picture say like a satellite or cable or DVD player. hope this helps.
