Hello and good morning.
I am Tech Michael and I will explain this to you the best I can.
Lightning is in the hundreds of thousands of volts and if it gets to the electrical lines anything is possible as these circuits run on very low voltage, so you knwo that is not a good sign;-(
In this case Im sure there is serious damage to components in the TV Im sad to report. There is one thing you cant try though, please unplug the TV from power for 10 full minutes, then plug it back in and let me knwo if that solves the issue?
Sometimes the TVs logic circuits will glitch and cause this when too much power is applied, if that is all that happened it should work well.
If not, then you will need to bring your TV to a repair shop for diagnostic test to determine what is actually wrong now.
Let them know about the lightning issue.
Both Best Buy and Sear are excellent service centers for this repair if needed, they do a great job at repair and are low cost as well;-)
Also it will be guaranteed!
I hope the unplugging reset procedure works for you fingers crossed and I wish I had better news for you on this, I really do. Lightning can destroy so many electronic devices, you should use a good quality surge protector to prevent these things from happening in the future;-)
In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.
