There's a good chance that you either have a bad HDMI port or HDMI processing chip. There are a lot of other things that it could be (with lightning you never know!) but those are the 2 things that I would suspect first.

Unfortunately there is no good way to test these two things. You can look into the HDMI port with a flashlight to make sure there are no bent pins, but after that you'd have to take the console apart and have a look inside...even if you do that though you may not be able to tell if the HDMI chip is bad or not...it may just need to be replaced to see if it fixes it.

I hope this helps.
