JVC 36 inch televivision i bouhgt it about 6 years ago
The other night my place was struck by lightning and now all i have on my tv is a blue screen. i have digital cable and i'm sure it's not the cablebox. when i go to the menu button and go to the channel summary option and put it on channel 3 nor 4 i can hear the tv but it's still on the menu option. once i click off of the menu it goes right back to a blue screen. i also can't change the channel when it's on the blue screen.

yes it can be repaired,mostly tv strucked by lightning are dead set because of the very high voltage that goes to the circuit coming from the lightning.there are voltage protector on the circuit.they are placed on the high voltage section of the circuit example are,pico resistors,glass fuseand varistors..yuo need to check them out..
Warranty voider there.
Hate to see a $1,000 TV go down the toilet.
If your lucky, you can try checking the fuses inside the TV.
The lightning may have taking out only your power supply board, shopjimmy.com may have replacements for about $100. But, I can't tell you for sure that will fix the problem.
You may have to take to a repair shop to find out for sure.
Assuming this line is across the screen horizontally (side to side), this means the vertical deflection circuitry is dead. In late model sets, there is a Integrated circuit package which drives the vertical yoke coils. Possible defects: the I.C. itself, bad solder connections where it solders to the board, missing voltage source to this I.C. (often around +24 volts), or a bad electrolytic capacitor in the associated circuitry. This latter often results in a non-linear picture, or less than full deflection condition, rather than a thin line only.
It is possible lightning caused this problem, (I've seen some rather illogical damage from lightning ) perhaps it produced enough of a surge to pop the I.C. or a fusible resistor in that voltage source noted above.
Sorry to here about your problem! This is the time of year I used to get tons and tons of sets, stereos ,games, and vcrs in for repair. On your panasonic it seems that maybe the surge took out the tuner portion or the power supply. It sould cost aprox. 200 bucks or so for a new tuner. Im sure your aware that homeowners will cover almost all repair after the deductable. Good Luck
