    ALWAYS discharge the high-voltage capacitor first if you even think your hands will come close to any HIGH VOLTAGE components.

    Jeff mentions this: Anything in the high voltage ( magnetron, capacitor, diode, wires to and from ):
    ...Use a metal ( not the shiny chrome type ) screw driver with a insulated handle to short across ( touch both at the same time ) the terminals of the high voltage capacitor to discharge it.

After moving the unit, many of the sections of the digital display numbers don't come on.
This leaves us with no way to use anything except the timed cooking and then we have to guess at what the numbers are. Sharp Model R530-BS. Any suggestions?

Sounds like maybe connections to the display got damaged in the move. I don't know if it is possible just a connection got jarred loose in the move but otherwise, replacing the control and display board (see the following link) may be required to correct the condition. :?
