The way I read the opening post, the OP may be using an indoor antenna as he stated "... tried re-scan, reset and new antenna". So, that eliminates the coax cable itself or an amplifier if it's a powered antenna.
Also, not saying you're wrong, but I find it unlikely that a static discharge would harm copper and steel to create an open or short in the coax. It's not the same as a nasty power surge.
IMO, as stated, the tuner probably got zapped.
