Question about Toshiba Televison & Video
There is a possibility that a sudden surge in voltage can cause a damage to the electrical circuit, If the damage is caused inspite of the device having a mechanism to handle this sudden surge (eg SMPS) then you can surely claim the compensation as the voltage regulator mechanism itself failed to check the increase in voltage.

Look for any capacitors that are puffy. Normal Capacitors have a flat silver top on it. Capacitors that go bad normally look puffy (pregnant) and normally would have a silver top that is not flat. You may find a bunch of these depending on how strong the power surge is.
Also you may find scorch marks if the board took a direct hit by lightning, it will be black marks and the chips will look burnt like a bad piece of wood.
