How do i fix it

The control board(s) are fried. Cost of parts, assuming they're even available, is likely to be very high. Not a DIY project.

Call your home insurance company. You should have at least some protection for lightning strikes - but there could be disclaimers regarding electronics unless you purchased a rider.

Set was hit by lightning and since then remote does not work, set has been repaired up to that point.Model#42PFL770/F7

A lightning strike will damage a lot of components - the ICs for the remote reception in the set are probably fried

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.

Depending on the amount of Joules your household/microwave received your low voltage control electronics may have been fried by the lightning strike. For your own safety I recommend a new microwave.

Lighting strike. Fixable? Worth fixing?

The cost to fix it is too high. And normally it affects almost all components.
Take it to an expert near you and analyze the situation if you want, but if it was me I would thow that away and buy a new one.

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.
