No reset button, unplug for about an hour and try again, you may have blown main AC fuse (F?),

It has knocked out your power supply board...It can be changed very easily just by taking the back off the set and tracing it from where the AC cord plugs in. Then unplug and unscrew the board. The part number should be 1AV4U20C17201. Match this number from your board and do a search with the number on Ebay or shopjimmy.com or google to get availibility and price. You can even do a search with the model number as well. Just be sure the board numbers match completely. But first replace the fuse as this could be your sole problem since you had a power surge.

SOURCE: Hello, I have a Toshiba
As it is a fault caused by the lightning it is better to consult some one experienced rather than doin it by Yourself. Its powers supply have problem. If you are able to do the same then remove the back cover. then check the input fuse in the power supply. If you find the fuse faulty then check the MOV (Componet used for High voltage sure protection, MOV have a voltage range, if voltage above its rating occurs it will get shorted and blows the fuse preventing from further damage to the power supply.). It will be near to fuse. It will be placed in Paralel to the Phase and Neutral track after fuse. You can check the same is it faulty very easly. Insert the new fuse in position, using multimeter (in ohms range) check the ohms between the two pins in the power cord. if its shows a low ohms ( bellow 1K) then the MOV is faulty. After replacing the MOV you have to check the ohms Again. if then also it shows low ohms. then you have to replace the bridge rectifier. first of all check the fuse and MOV. picture of MOV is added below.

If cable box converter has damaged, there is no question about the main board of your TV. It has been damaged. Before replacing it, you have to check the power supply board also. If the TV has been pluged to power supply, surely there will be fault to it also. We can't predict the exact fault occurs during a lightning, because Trillions of volts are passes nearby. You have connected the TV with cable connection and to the home power supply too.
Just replace the main board first. If it does not hel you, replace the power board too. I hereby send picture of both boards.
The first one is main board and the other is power supply regulator board.
