I have a Magnavox 32me402v/F7. The TV was on when a strike of lighting caused a power outage. When the power came back on everything else in the house ( 2 other TV's included ) came back on with no problems. The Magnavox was plugged in to a surge protector (albeit a cheap one) but still refuses to turn on. We have left it unplugged for a span of time then tried, we have unplugged/replugged it multiple times, and we have tried different outlets to no avail. I figured, what's the harm in pulling the back off and taking a look inside. It already doesn't turn on, could I make it much worse? So upon investigation there is what appears to be a fuse that looks burnt. It is a clear tube type thing located near the power cord.

Now, I will say that I am not tech savvy or mechanically inclined, so feel free to follow my screen name and talk to me like I'm 5. I need to know if this could be causing the problem. If so how do I go about getting a new one and replacing it? Is it worth the effort? It seems incredibly simple but I could just be painfully naive.

I have links to pictures but I don't know if I am posting them correctly so I appointment advance if I did it wrong.

If you want to replace the 4 Amp 125 Volt fuse, you can, but I wouldn't be surprised if it blows it again. If it does, I would expect one or more of the 4 diodes above the AC cord or the FET on the 'L' shaped heat sink to be shorted.
