Angry HELP: Panasonic Viera plasma gone 'bang'.

OK, here's the story. Bought a 42" Panasonic Viera plasma on 22/09/2012 from Comet before they went bust.
Yesterday, the TV was on (showing a DVD menu screen), nobody was in the room at the time but the next thing I know is my wife comes outside to tell me all the power had gone off in the house!?
I went inside to find that the downstairs sockets had indeed tripped out.
When switching back on the Panasonic TV would not power up. No lights, nothing. Obvious checks made to the mains cable and fuse. BOTH OK!
Now, it's my guess that the TV caused the power to trip!?

NOTE: all devices on the TV cabinet/shelf are connected to an 8-gang power surge protected extension!!!

I have contacted Panasonic because I thought that with it being only 3 weeks over the 12 months warranty they would honour the guarantee. Problem is we have torn the house apart looking for the receipt but to no avail. All I can find is my credit card statement showing the Comet purchase but not showing what it is that was bought. They want 48 call out charge + whatever the repairs might be. But without the receipt I would have to foot the bill myself

Now, I've been doing some looking online and it could be the power board that is to blame? DOES THIS SOUND VIABLE?
Is this something I could buy and replace myself? I could get one for less than the 48 call out charge.

Is there anyone that can help on here with experience in similar events such as mine?

Thanks,

Mike

Yes there should be fuses on the psu board and the X and Y board, have a look to see if there is any obvious damage on the PSU board any burnt components or swollen capacitors etc, If you can't find anything then check the voltages on the mainboard with a multimeter you will find one of the connectors will have the voltages marked on the board, or you can download a service manual for free usually if you search, if any are wrong or 0v its probably the psu, be carefull as some of the voltages on the psu especially the large capacitors are dangerous.
