Playstation hit by lightning will not power up can I retrieve my data

Maybe, it all depends on whether or not the hard drive was fried by said lightning strike.
Remove the hard drive from it and try it in another ps3 (or a pc using sata) If it does not accept the hard drive then i have some bad news for you.

HDMI no longer output after lightning storm. ps3 still has all the data and can still output in composite. tried resetting and reboot and still not working

I would try another device that uses HDMI output and plug it into that HDMI tv input to ensure that it is not your tv that is at fault. If the TV is fine, more than likely something in your PS3 got fried. This is actually a common issue with the PS3 as you can see here:

If your tv is fine you will more than likely have to call up Sony for a repair or a replacement. Lightning can do damage to any electronic device from up to miles away. EMF damage is a nasty thing. It used to wreak all kinds of havoc for the wireless internet company I used to work for.

I hope this helps! If it does, please give it a thumbs up!

Lightning made my ps3 have sound no picture

It sounds like you have burned part of the circuit board. It is probably cheaper to replace the unit rather than repair it. However, to be sure, you should price out both options.

I hope this helps.

Possibly Fried ps3

You CAN repair it, but you probably shouldn't try.

Unless you have another PS3 or have a buddy that doesn't mind you taking his apart then it's pretty much a waste of your time.

Call SONY for repair @ 1-800-345-SONY

If you do have access to a PS3 that you can swap parts from then by all means let me know and I'll point you in the right direction.

It's fried! You can claim it on your homeowners/renters insurance in a situation like that!! Or you can sell it for parts on eBay and get up to $200 for it. Hope this helps. Good luck to you.
