Lightning damage is covered by your home owners policy. A strong hit will weaken your electronic nd appliances. When I got hit I had to replace almost all my electronics. Refrigerator to air conditioner, computers, to clocks, even the door bell, some did not fail for a while. You may need a letter from your electric utility to avoid the insurance company balking. I even had to have my main switch box replaced and the line to the alley. After you have made your claim and settled, then you can look at attempting repairs.

@chechipatron it possibly can be fixed. But the question here will be where did it get zapped. You will have to check the power board and the main board. So, you need to tell us what model your TV is. Remove the back of your TV and look at the boards for any obvious damage. Post some images of your boards with your question. for that use this guide that way we can see what you see.
