Sharp Aquos LED Won't Turn On

Back in July while I was on a cruise, there apparently was an extreme thunderstorm near me, and I returned to my TV not turning on.

I know, I should have unplugged it while I was gone.. but I didn't. Was not in a surge protector either. My Uverse box was fried as well, but that was easy to replace.

So, I bought a Vizio LED to replace it.. but I would still like to know how I can fix my Sharp that's sitting there doing nothing..

What do you think could be wrong with it? And how hard would it be to fix?

BUMP! Still need this resolved, tanks.

To elaborate a bit more on the OP - Since the TV was plugged right into the wall outlet during the storm - lightning obviously save a surge to the outlet and shorted it out.

Now, what would that cause to fail on the TV? Do I need to replace the power unit, do I need a whole new board, or are there just a few capacitors/resistors that burst? Regardless which it would be, I would just like to know so that I can fix the TV and either have two TV's set up, or give it to my sister to replace her lousy 27" 720p from nearly 5 years ago :p 

Thank you!!
