Sounds like it has corrupted when Vermin knocked off all boxes...... Have you tried the reset button on the PCB??
TBH sounds like it needs J-Tagging

Glad to be of help.... J-tagging is needed when a box stops working - re-flashing firmware should work but on some occasions the chipset can be corrupt, even a surge of power could cause it. J-tagging is a way of reflashing the chip..
I don't want to go into too much detail as still unsure what is allowed since this section has reopened but i'm sure if you google it or search on you tube there are people who show how it is done
