Lightning hits do some nasty damage to electronics.
Alot of times that type of repair is part of an insurance claim. The insurance company requires estimates and will repair them up to the cost of replacement.

If you arent dealing with an insurance claim on this I'd still recommend a professional estimate.
Lightning damage sometimes is confined to the power supply and once repaired could be fine bit in my experience most items that take a nasty hit are a write off.

Do you have your television plugged into a surge protector? If not, your television might have blown a fuze. You will have to take your tv down unscrew all the back plate screws and check the fuze. Possibly your remote is dead. Try pushing the power button directly on the tv and see if that works
