Well, from what I remember there was a PIC microcontroller and a small
EEPROM chip. I don't think it could have been the PIC because those hold
right next to the AVR I mentioned.
It could have been something as simple as the voltage regulator. It would
power up and only rarely work. Other times it would just spasm its
outputs. This wasn't an isolated case. : ( I ended up doing my first AVR
machine language program because of it. : )
