Question about Protron PLTV-26 26 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
This happened during a thunder storm and all the electricty went off for about two minutes. I had been watching the T.V. when the power was out, but when the power came back, the T.V. had no power. I checked all circuit breakers. If it was struck by lightening, can it be repaired?

Posting this for the third time now:
I checked and found the Protron name belong(s) or (ed) to Spectroniq and neither of the two websites are up anymore.
Also, I could probably make a zapped supply work again but you do not know what might have been damaged downstream from it and that is a good possibility; the damage may be much deeper than it appears since many of the integrated circuits used in modern equipment don't tolerate hundred (or thousand) volt spikes and without a working supply, there is little chance of diagnosing it unless a service department has a few lab-type power supplies and can simulate the failed original supply.
If you do find anyone who has stock on assemblies for this TV, you may find more than one part number on the board. If it is a number that seems to be under clear lacquer, it is likely only the bare board number. If it seems to be stamped on or has a label with a number on it, this is going to be the whole part number for the 'stuffed' board.
I can't help you with this one but I would suggest, especially if you live in a lightning-prone area to consider installing a 'whole house' surge protector. They do cost a couple of hundred US dollars plus installation charges, but the established companies even include an insurance policy that covers $10,000-25,000 in damages. If you own your home, it's your decision and I cannot imagine any landlord would object to having you install one at your own expense.
