This sort of thing is usually fatal to the motherboard. Check your household insurance policy, some cover lightening damage.

Had lightning hit near by and tv will not do anything. could it be the cord or is there a reset button?

it may have blown the shock diode on the power board check that and change it. it stops the tv from blowing up in a lightning strike. if it has worked it wil have just blown that and the fuse inside the tv and nothing els.

Possible that the motor has failed and it has developed a leak to the body which seems to be felt over the machine, Isolate the motor and test the external voltage presence.. if absent it can be related to the motor.

Bike feels like it hitting down hard when i hit a bump with a passenger

it sounds like you need a new shock absorber. there is also an adjuster on most shocks. theres a small coil spring around the shock. underneath the spring is a piece that resembles stairs but it has spots for the post on the shock to set in. if you look at the rear shock you will see it. if you rotate it to the higher adjustment you should get a slightly stiffer shock as a result. there is also a type of shock that has threads on it. if you tighten the retaining nut that holds the coil on it should get stiffer. if that doesn't help you probably need to buy a new one.

Brother HL 2170W printer fried by lightning?

Wait until the printer cools and try again. As you said, you've tried from different power sources (including a different outlet). If still the same problem, unfortunately, your printer got the "hit" instead of the protected power strip.

There is a high probability that your laptop has been fried, especially if it was plugged into the mains at the time of the lightning strike.
A lightning strike could damage many components and even if you could get it fixed (most likely require a motherboard replacement) there are no guarentees that some other component won't fail in the future.
If it was me, I would put my money towards a new laptop and get a surge/lightning protection power board and disconnect the laptop from the main during a lightning storm.
