Screen went black after a storm no picture or sound

If you try and reset it by unplugging for 30 min and then plugging it back in and it does not respond, then most likely you had a voltage spike and caused damage to one of the main boards. The power supply board is the most likely to be damaged, it will be the one the power cord is connected to. Look this board over for any signs of damage or capacitors that may be bulging or split or even leaking. these sets are very sensitive to voltage spikes and you will be miles ahead if you protect them with a top quality surge protector, not the cheap ones you see in the dept stores. If you still have warranty have it sent in for repair and do not mention any storms when this went out.

Not getting power to tv.Socket and plugs are getting power ,there was a thunder storm,but every thing else fine.

The problem of your tv is the power supply the thunder storm cause that. You should unplug your tv when not in use, try to check the fuse if busted, their are two classification of a busted fuse, if the fuse is only open try to replace it but if the fuse is all burned out dont just replace it, it has a shorted parts like the regulator and the bridge type rectifier

I am getting an error code C0500 after changing the toner. What do I need to do to get the printer back online?

Depends on the model of you Konica Minolta. The CO500 is usually related to fusing temp. It's possible that a power spike or a thunder storm that knocked out power to the building would caused this.

Printer stopped responding.

It is possible that a power surge/spike took out the printer's circuit board somewhere. You might check with the printer's manufacturer for sure.
