And you would rather fix it than use it as an excuse to get a newer scanner:D Isn't that a late 80's, early 90's scanner? There are so many things that could have gone bad courtesy of the lighning strike. I'm sure that it would be cheaper and less frustrating to get a new inexpensive base at the shack than to trouble shoot what could be wrong. Of course, if you got lots of time on your hands, and the equipment to test the circuit boards. By all means go for it:)
