TV tech question - Magnavox 36" goes black

I have a "Smartseries" 36" Magnavox TV (MS36SOC129 - pretty sure this is model #) . The other night (during rain storm), I had TV on and it went black. Powered it back up and screen stayed on for 1-2 seconds then shut down black. I've tried with cable signal and with DVD with same results. Each time screen goes black.
Any suggestions on trouble shooting?
Thanks,

check the power supply board

check the power supply board for damage. it could have been hit by lightening through your cable line. i had it happen. you will need new guts (power supply module and signal board). Look for obvious black on the board and burnt out looking pieces. hope this helps
