Thanks for all your help getting my Meggy Jr. working again.  I also enjoyed the tour of your facilities :)
I got the chips back in and it works fine now.  I have not found any other power adapters that fit that are higher than 5V. Is it possible that the damage could have happened from someone reversing the polarity of the battery box?  My son may have done that, but I know that the batteries were quite used.
also, I remember why I use a dremel to remove chips.  You can cut them up high, just at the junction to the chip, which leaves plenty of lead left to grip and remove.
