My HDTV went out in a lightening storm. What could it be?

Is your TV plugged into a surge protector? If not it very well may have gotten a power surge during the lightening storm that fried components in the TV.
Or is the TV connected to a cable box? It could be that the cable box took the hit if it's not plugged into a surge protector.
Or a possibility of both.

Zenith Z15LCD1 Completely dead set after a lightning storm. Did not have it connected to surge protector. Does it have a fuse for protection?

They have many fuseable links. I would suspect the mains input fuse feeding the on/off switch and power supply primary because if a power surge arrives there are filters that absorb the extra energy and yake out the fuse.
Hope that helps.

When the TV is turned on it has a green picture and has lines running across the TV.

It looks like your TV has experienced a power surge (storm, power anomaly, etc.) and your main decoding and scanning circuitry is fried. You'll need to send it in for service.

Screen froze during lightning storm. no picture now. When powering on screen lights and then dims - no picture, no sound

You might have had a power surge.Try unplugging your TV for 5 minutes and plugging it back in. If you cannot get a picture from any device such as a DVD player and cable then your TV needs serviced call a repair man. Good Luck!

Zenith monitor in an arcade game

Check to see if you can find horizontal and vertical sync controls. These would typically be small knobs or screwdriver adjustments on the edge of a circuit board or at the back of the monitor chassis. Try adjusting the vertical sync....rotate the knob back and forth two or three times to "clean" it...then adjust to see if you can get the picture to settle down.

Aging electrolytic capacitors are the most common cause of symptoms like this. You'll need the assistance of an experienced electronics technician to find the exact source of the problem.
