You need to contact your insurance because that surge destroyed the TV circuit boards.

My envision model L32W961 volume goes from normal volume to blasting then back to normal. it started after lighning hit a tree beside the house.

Anytime and electrical storm is close enough to hit a tree, it sends all types of energy through everything. Did you have a surge protector on the TV? Sound to me like the TV has internal damage and needs repair or replacement. Have you tried to simply unplug the TV and wait 30 seconds and plug it back in. This sometimes will reset the microprocessor.

I have a Sabre LCD that was apparently struck by lighting. It still turns on, but won't receive any signals from any components. & if you switch input, it just flashes a black screen with the inputs...

Nobody can predict, what might have been happend to the TV, due to lighning stroke. You TV need a through checkup. Contact any service technician. It sounds almost like the main digital board has damaged.

My boilder is struck by lightning and had burned plastic smell. then it stopped working. The power line seems to be fine, somewhere inside got struck. Any way this can be fixed?

You can change out all the heating elements and controls, but hard to say what lighning did without seeing and being there. Sounds like the control board got burnt and that was the smell you smelled, but I can't promise the element is good.

Tv struck by lightning

You wont be able to fix the TV your self as the power circuit board may have blown - consult a qualified repair man. Buying a surge protector for your expensive electronic goods is highly recommended.

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.
