Sounds like the bulb shorted, which is very common, and the first time it blew the fuse.
It sounds like when you put the new fuse in and tried it again, the bulb was still shorted, and this time it damaged the board.
We see (and repair) thisa lot. The problem is on the control panel, whichwe regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about aweek.
Atour Web site, we have a videoavailable showing how to remove a typicalover the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
This light failure oftenoccurs when a bulb goes out and the filamentshorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without firstunplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such afailure on the controller.
This can often alsoaffect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can beinoperable or stuck on too.

SOURCE: My GE Microwave Oven won't
There is a solid state switching device called a triac "electronic voltage controller" that has malfunctioned, it controls the power level settings when making power selection, It will need to be replaced to correct the problem. This repair should be done by a qualified technician because dangerous high voltages are present.

Suspect inverter (power) and or the Magnatron---neither are cheap parts.
