Question about LG 42PG20 42 in. Plasma HDTV
I'm around 80% sure that the TV is repairable because by what you have explained it is still receiving power.
Have you tried a factory reset on the TV? If not try that if you can and see if the TV will come on. If there is no option to manually reset the TV then because of the lightning strick on your home there will have been a massive surge of power that will have damaged components in the TV. One of the components which will have no doubt been fried is the controller board and possibly other components too.
You are not going to know just which parts have been damaged until you take the TV to a shop to have it looked at where they can test all the components and circuit boards.
This could be quite expensive but on the other hand it could also be as simple as them replacing a coulple of semicontuctor chips or capacitors.
You could also investigate this yourself by removing power fron the TV, take off the back of the TV and inspect the main boards for anything that looks to have blown out.
