The exact same thing happened to me about 10 years ago..  A nearby lightning
stike took out a chip in the 'MP.  I'd have to look at the schematic to see
which one,
but its obvious, I just can't remember.  That chip is pretty sensitive.

It's also a surface mount, so nothing I wanted to fool with.  I knew a local
here who was
good with a soldering iron and he replaced it.  If you patient enough, you
probably do it.

On the other hand, good to hear from you, OM!
