I have a KV-29XBR85 TV that worked well for over 7 years.
Recently, the picture now and the horizontal lines going from left to right.
However, I still sound and I can change TV channels.

If it was me...I would first check the series of fuses on you main circuit board. Look for any burned components.

Denon receiver just struck by lightning.

Any time a unit is hit by lightning, it is usually a total loss. While the initial problem may be fixable, other components have been stressed and are likely to fail. Most shops won't work on these units because of the likelyhood of continual failures. Warranties won't be given or the repairs. In your specific case, the switching IC has been damaged and needs to be replaced as well as the surround processing section. This is best handled as an insurance claim for replacement.

2007 Sony Trinitron WEGA will not turn on (no nioses, nothing)

right if it has been struck by lightning then a wide array of components will be shorted in the powersupply from diodes to capacitors, resistors and driver IC's , the fuse and Mains Transformer and all will need to be tested individualy but if they look black and charred then they need to be replaced.

TV won't turn on

It may be too late for this advice, but if you live in a lightning prone area, you should consider having a 'whole house surge protector' installed.
The cost should be well under $300 (a lot less if you install it) and with the included insurance (most often for $25,000) it is a good investment.

If your house was struck, I'm surprised you don't have a list of things that no longer work.
It could just be an expired TV.

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.
