My Uncle's tv will not turn on after a lightning storm had passed by a couple of days ago. I believe its the power fuse but when I took it out, it does not look burnt or fried. Is there anything else that oculd be wrong or am I lookin in the right place?

Check the fuses on the power board. there is one fuse on primary side and one on secondary side. Take
of back panel and follow plug into the tv.where it ends is the power
board.always use caution.the capacitors in there hold high voltage even
after unplugged for a couple of days.Discharge capacitors before
servicing the board.
It is most likely the power supply burnt out. The capacitor's inside are made cheaper than the o'l days and get overheated easily. You can test capacitors with capacitor tester and service manual. You can test power supply output voltage with just a voltmeter
There is a small fuse in the board beside or close to where your power cord goes into your tv. Pull the fuse to see if it needs replaced. It will only cost a couple of books. Mine did this after a lightning storm.
