Since the projector is not powering on, then it means its having a power problem. The fault is from the power board.

The power board of the the projector is defective as a diode, capacitor or fuse must have blown on the power board as a result of the storm that led to the loss of power.

Get a screw driver, open the projector, take a look at the power board for any blown fuse. If you find any, replace it, but if you don't, then maybe you should send it for repairs.

Good luck.

Loss of power at low speeds, car doesn't stall but will have my foot to the floor and car won't rev up. Once I come to a complete stop car will work fine again. Recently had my catalytic converter replaced...

Yes, many things. First do you have any trouble codes? Loss of power at any speed almost always pertains to air (vacuum) either leaking or blocked. That's an inexpensive place to start. Test all intake vacuum including egr and pcv with a inexpensive vacuum gauge.
Other possible things to look at is dirty fuel injectors or a small stone in the fuel line between the filter and the injector but these possibilities are more labor intensive and not as common.

Flat screen tv power surged

Is it just the cable? Do you have a DVD player or game system connected? If so, how do they look? Ofter a momentary power loss can cause cableboxes to loss picture, loss sound, and even cause the picture to be distorted. Try unpluggind the AC power from the cablebox and TV. Wait about 5 minutes and reconnect both. Leave the cablebox alone for about another 5 minute after you reconnect it so that it can fully boot up. Then see if you still have the problem.

Dvd player to projector

Yes please.
You can connect it either thru the RCA Composite output(yellow) of your DVD or thru the S-Video or even thru the component out(YPbPR) connections. In the component out you would require three RCA cables and would give you the best possible picture.
Find a link below , which gives a review of the Viewsonic PJ 501.
