RE: Magnavox 27' TV Blacked Out After Power Surge

Your TV got damaged and likely will have to be repairs or replaced.

If the lights dimmed, then you had a power sag, not a surge ... although there may have been a surge when it was restored. Does the surge protector indicate it has been blown? Typically there's an indicator light, or is it obviously burned/damaged?
