Electronics Pete :

Hi there,
It really depends how much damage has been done to the TV.

Modern TVs have a power protection circuit and fuses, which will blow and protect the rest of the TV.
Generally, you will only need to have a few components replaced, or possibly replace the entire power supply board if it is badly damaged.

Electronics Pete :

An estimated repair cost for a TV damaged by a power surge is between $150-250.

Electronics Pete :

Using a surge protection adapter will prevent any future damage.
