Question about Panasonic NN-T990SA Microwave Oven
Although lightning damage is normally fatal to anything with electronics inside, you might remove the back panel and look for fuse holders.
If you find one (minimum) or two (likely), replace them (if you have a cheap multimeter you can check for continuity) and see if it will turn on.
You may have to do a little telephone work to locate the high current fuse which is probably 30 amps.
If you live in an area of frequent lightning strikes, investing in a 'whole house' surge arrester makes sense. These are installed in the main breaker box and any brand I've seen comes with a $10-25,000 insurance policy to replace any dead appliances that fail despite the surge protector. They cost $150-250 US plus installation which you can save if you are afraid to DIY.
