    It likely took out the amp too. Repair would only be about $20 shipped in the US unless there is more damage than I expect.

    If the amp is fine it will be cheaper.

    Email me for contact info.

    Do you have a pic of the board and wiring? Have you made sure the switch is good? Do you have some tweezers to short between the gnd and aux pad to test it that way?

    Yeah if the voltage is reversed it will blow the main cap and possibly the audio amp. I am out of pocket for a day or two. We can work on getting it repaired after Christmas.
