You need to check the power supply for problems. This involves dismantling the TV set and you also need a multimeter.
Lightning, when strikes, can send thousands of volts through the circuit. Even though your TV was not directly struck it could be through other input cable like antenna or external dish.
Check for the transformer and relays. Also check voltage across the capacitors. Having zero resistance between the capacitors means they are damaged.
Note: discharge the capacitors first before checking their resistance. Just remove the power cable and turn on the TV to ensure there are no high voltages.
