us 20x20 pcb probably dead

Hi all,,

I have a tascam us20x20 audio interface and recently have short circuited my laptop with the audio interface connected. Since then it isn't connecting to my laptop (it still powers on!) anymore and I brought it to the repair shop where they told me the psb had to be replaced which is incredibly costly (almost costs more than buying it brand new). I declined the repair... But what should I do with the audio interface? Is this repair doable? Where would I get a pcb for the us20x20?


Here's a video showing that it powers on and the inside of the audio interface

That is a lot of circuit board (PCB) so I imagine it would cost a lot of money since it is the heart of the unit. Have you contacted Tascam to see if they can have a look at it? It may only be a problem with the power supply. Best of luck!
