We can't predict which components have been damaged due to lightning. Sometimes, a fuse only, otherwise more other components might have damaged. Anyway, if fuse should blow out, surely there will be any more reason. You should find it out first, before replacing the fuse. If not, more damage can be occur. Check for any shorted components, diodes, capacitors etc: at its main power supply regulator board. Be sure that there is no other defect occurred.
That is a tricky question, lightning can cause minor to severe damage. If the TV is completely dead, the power supply board will be the first order of things to check, if fuse is open chances are there will be damaged parts and open foil. If fuse blows, board replacement would be the next step, however the risk is will it work, lightning may take 1to 3 boards for example and the unfortuneate thing is you must sub boards until it works.
Nine out of ten microwave ovens are protected to a degree by a fuse. This fuse is usually located near or right at the rear of the unit, accessible by removing the outer shell. This is not something one with no knowledge of electricity and electronics should attempt to do, however, it's a fairly simple repair for a shop. The problem is finding one you feel you can trust not to rip you off for an expensive repair when all they had to do was check the continuity of the fuse and replace it.

Best to take it to a repair centre as lightning damage can cause either minor fault such as an internal fuse blown or major problems that would make it uneconomical to repair. Ask for an estimate for the cost to repair.
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.
