Considering the TV is only 5

Considering the TV is only 5 months old, it should still be covered under the Emerson factory warranty (1 year parts & labor, 3 years on the picture tube itself). However, it is possible that they will not cover damage from power surges.

If residing in the USA, call 1-800-909-1240 for Emerson customer service. They will be able to guide you from there. Or, visit the store that you purchased if from.

If it turns out they will not cover it, and the repair cost equals more than 2/3 the current retail value, I'd call it a loss and purchase a new, better TV... as well as a surge protector.

Read the article "Protecting Your Home Theater System" to learn more about surge protectors.
