I've checked on line for a schematic of this TV but was unsuccessful but I suspect it is one of two problems.
1) A fuse inside the TV was blown from a power surge caused by the storm. If you can locate it pull it out and look to see if it looks blackened (even a little) or if the wire inside is broken. This would indicate the fuse did it's job and stopped the power from burning out the whole TV. All of these fuses are available at your local electronics store or Radio Shack if you have one nearby.
2) The power supply on the TV was hit by the surge and burned out. There is no simple solution to this problem as the power supply would need to be replaced and the only way to do this is to hire a qualified TV repair service. If you happen to be good at soldering and understand electronics you could do this yourself after buying the power supply on line. I checked online and the part is about $60-70 USD.
There is a possibility that the power surge could have fried one of the circuit boards and if that's the case then you would have to weigh how much you want to pay to repair the unit after having a repair service estimate the work. I feel pretty strongly that you have one of the other two issues I listed since you didn't mention any other items in your home that were damaged at the same time. If there were more items then I would suspect the power surge would have been much more massive and likely caused considerable damage but since not then the damage would be minor leading to my previous conclusion.
