Question about Televison & Video
I have worked on your tv many times.
if you can see that the screen is lit up somewhat, then you probably have voltages and scan (power board "P" board, scan board "sc" board), and other board are usually ok. if you truly had a surge, it came in through power or cable/video inputs. with your symptom, it likely did not come in through power, or you would just have a dead set. if it came in through your video inputs, it will usually just fry the video (main) board. we can look up the board part #s and "exact names" when we figure it out, but first we need to confirm.
can you see your tv menu?
does rebooting the tv "hard boot" snap it out of the issues?
-unplug AC power for 2 minutes, plug in, wait 30 seconds and turn it back on.
answering these questions will narrow it down.
also look closely at the screen, if you can see it kind of light up, but dont see any pixels "mis-firing", it just looks like a dark screen, then your power and scan and sustain boards are all likely good.
let me know, we can fix this
