Re: The TV won't do anything
Power surge and lighting do a lot of damage ,you will be lucky if you only find the bridge rectifiers shorted(maybe just one) and a open fuse,that will give a place to start but expect more extensive damage.Be carefull

It appears that during the storm there may have been an electrical surge that damaged the electronics of your tv. If the tuner is working fine then the affected area (board) is the one that has the HDMI input sources.
This model only has an analogue tuner so wont receive anything if the analogue signal in your area has been switched off. either buy a new new with a freeview tuner built in or just use that one in conjunction with a freeview box.
It might have been blown out by the lightening storm. that happened to two of my tvs that were plugged in during a lightening storm. they both, and two dvd players, would not work after, but the ones that were not plugged in were fine. You should unplug your major electronic equipment during a storm, unless you have a power surge plug/equipment.
To my knowledge a CMKM-P3X is a generic interface board assembly, generally used by many electronic manufacturers. I am therefore inclined to think that this is not the real part number or board number for that matter.
Having said that, is it possible for you to provide photos/images of the burned board or component? There is a possibility that generic/replacement/refurbished may then be available.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
The problem has nothing to do with Vista. The solder joints have come loose on your vertical output IC. This is very common in those Panasonic TV's. If you have experience in working on TV's then you can disassemble the set and resolder the pins of the vertical output IC and your picture will be fine. Otherwise, allow a qualified tech to handle it for you. It is a quick and simple procedure and should not cost too much.
