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
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!
