It has power as it is plugged into the same surge protector as my tv and it works. I think it was zapped last night though. In the diplay area where channels and time are displayed there is a circle with a dot to the right of it. How do I fix this?

To answer your questions: I recommend you begin by checking the outlet where the TV is plugged in, or the APC/Surge protector, for power. You can use a hair dryer or lamp for example. If you establish that there is power flowing to the outlet where the TV was plugged in, then the TV will have to have the internal fuses and power supply tested, possibly replaced. If there is no power flowing to the TV, check your fuse box for blown breakers, or bypass the APC/surge protector and plug the TV straight to the wall to test for power.
ok lets try this hit the power button on the DVD player some go into stand by mode and when power is interrupted you have to push the button manually also reset the surge protector next get a lamp that you know works and unplug the tv and plug the lamp into the socket where the TV was plugged into turn on the lamp, does it turn on? yes then something wrong with TV again may have been in stand by mode plug back in and try pushing the power switch on make sure the TV if it has a remote is on the right im put to get a picture say like a satellite or cable or DVD player. hope this helps.
Check the power source to the computer (both ends of the cord), if a surge protector is in line with the power , remove it and plug the computer straight into the wall. also check the wall plug with a lamp or something to ensure power there. make sure the switch on the power supply hasnt been changed to the 220v side.
If no power at the wall- check your breaker box in the house
If it works plugged straight into the wall- check the surge protector
If power at the wall and plugged straight into the computer (no surge protector) and nothing lights up when you turn it on- have your power supply checked.
First thing to do is try to plug the pc in another wall socket to see if it goes on, If not, the MB could have gotten fried, even though the other plugs seem to work. Hopfully you just need another surge protector as that could have gotten damaged.
I had a similar problem when there was a power outage or the lights went briefly out. I unplugged the TV and left it for a few days/weeks and then plugged it in and the TV worked. I think newer TVs should be treated like a home computer and put them on surge protectors.
You will probably want to get the audio module checked by a professional. It could be something as simply as a blown capacitor/resistor, but if you are not familiar with this, best get a professional to diagnose/repair the set.
Try this first: Unplug the tv from the mains and remove all cables. Wait for about 10 mins. Now plug the TV back into the mains, while holding the power button ON. See if this resolves the issue.
I would also recommend investing in a surge protector/spike buster if have frequent storms in your area.
LOT OF TIME WHEN YOU LEAVE IT OFF FOR THE NIGHT DISCONNECT POWER CORD DEFECTIVE SURGE PROTECTOR IS NOT GOOD FORE EVER PLUG TV IN THE WALL WITOUT THE SURGE PROTECTOR IF IT GOOD CHANGE THE SURGE PROTECTOR FOR NEW ONE CHEERS
