How do I know whether the power supply or the main board is broken on a Samsung LN46D630 LCD TV?

Most of the time the power supply is defect when the lightening was close enough. But you can't be sure there is a lot of other damage in the rest of the TV set. Is there no insurance you can claim a new TV, because repairing it now, will not give any guaranty nothing else can switch of (become defect) within only a few months.
Just Google for ESD (Electro static discharge) and see what a small discharge (is close enough can damage let alone lightning close to an electronic device. But read the damage can come with a delay.

I have sound and picture distortion (like what happens during a thunderstorm) in my 42 inch insignia lcd tv but not during storms. started about two weeks ago, happens intermittently. driving me nuts. is...

Your probably having what cable guys call a SNR ( signal to noise ) issue. There's no way to know unless you call your cable provider. The SNR should be 32 and above with zero pre/post errors. In case you want to ask the tech what they are.

We had a thunderstorm and it close by and turned off the tv. When I turned it back on, the screen is blue but no reception. Any ideas? Is there a reset button?

You probably got some lightning through the antenna connection to the tuner input. You can try feeding it with a DVD player through the RCA jacks, setting the TV input to match the jack location on the TV. If that works, you can use an external tuner to watch TV, or you could pay to have the tuner section repaired. The repair might be a little pricey though.

RCA 32 in TV no picture no sound just a beeping noise TV power is on

The beeping sound is most likely the high voltage generator needing replacement. This is a fairly easy job if you have some tech support to discharge the picture tube. You can go to the following link and leave them an email with your model number and your symptom and they will email you back with the part you need and they provide free tech support with instant messageing so you can do the repair yourself. the HV generator takes about a half hr to replace and takes only the basic soldering ability. heres the link.
