It's only worth it if it fixes it for a reasonable outlay. I think we have to be realistic and assume the worse. Remember it's not a "normal" failure mode... it's been zapped.

And you would have to practice on old PCB's first... modern remotes often have SMD chips in them... and be prepared that it may well not be a runner in the end.

Perhaps if you can get a replacement at reasonable outlay then that's the best option.

This may be an opportunity in disguise. Six years ago lightning got my D2A2. After six months of replacing caps and regulators I faced up to reality -- the most valuable part of that Aragon iron was the case!
