Lightning damage could be all or nothing, It's very hard to tell without checks all around the boards. I think your best bet is to check with homeowners and see if they will pay for lightning damage and if they say take it to a tech to fix and they will pay, go that way. But If you want to DIY, then the best thing is to call PTS 18008447871 and price a Deflection module. This is more than likely the area, but still not 100% sure. But it has the HV area on it. This will still be around 200-300 and it most likely will fix the problem. Hope this helps!

Lightning struck pole outside my home now my tv screen is pink I don't know if it's my tv or cable box!

For sure your TV. But you still have to replace your Antenna Cable, if not the LNB as well.The LNB is the "EYE" in front of the Dish. You do not have to replace the Dish.

Lighting struck the apartment about a week ago, tv was plugged in when lighting struck apartment. Tv does not turn on anymore.

Best to take it to a repair centre as lightning damage can cause either minor fault such as an internal fuse blown or major problems that would make it uneconomical to repair. Ask for an estimate for the cost to repair.

TV was struck by lightning

If it was struck by lightning, the surge would completely fry the insides of your TV. Your TV probably won't work anymore and you may have to consider replacing it. Some TVs have accident warranties so something like this could be protected, but if not, you will have to purchase a new one.
