Why the microwave display flickers and shows no power?

I have been trying to figure what went wrong with our microwave, it shows no power in display. I already checked the fuse, thermostat, door latches, magnetron etc. They all are working fine. When the power is turned on, I notice a little spark on the control board and the display flickers. What could have possibly gone wrong?

ANSWERS:

Sparking microwave bodes ill will. It is dangerous, means you have an electrical short that could cause a fire. I would either replace the whole thing if it is a cheap stand alone or give us the make and model number so we can find a replacement control panel part. Meanwhile I would not try to use it. In fact just disconnect the power until it is fixed.
