Typically, it's a 74*06 on the drive, but they are really hardy ICs, so 
more diagnosis is prudent.  If it is the IC, it's a small 14 pin device, 
DIP, so easily replaced.  It will, though, not be socketed, so it'll 
require some desoldering.

Anyone nearby with some equipment to test with?

As noted on the store, the recent shows has ruined my shipping schedule, 
but hopefully we'll get back on track in the next week or so.
