The circuit board was most likrly danaged by the Lightning strike. It does not have to be a direct hit .The hum you're hearing is power going to the board.That however does not mean it is not damaged.damaged .You can try powering it down to see if it will restart but the control biard will most likeky need replacing.Unkess you are familiar with making reoairs on your systemyou may want to have it checked by a professional. You would also most likelyget a warranty on the new part if you dont replace it yoursekf
