Default amp possibly blown

Hey all,i have a problem with my amp and cant afford a new one.
One day i managed to make my amps power cable come out.
It touched the side of the amp and made a weird noise then stopped working.when i turn the car on now it makes a click noise and then the power light comes on for a moment then goes off.
Sadly the fuse is fine.
Im pretty handy with replacing components but my only real flaw is diagnosis.
Just had a kid and aint got the cash to pay for repairs for this sort of thing.
Am here hoping someone may have and incling as to what may have happened and what needs to be replaced.

Thanks

I don't have anything on that amp. If no one else has anything, post at least one photo of the inside of the amp.

Have you used a volt meter to make sure the amp is getting power, remote and ground? When testing, hold the black meter lead to the ground connection on the amp itself.

Some amps will blow the ground trace inside, it depends on how the amp was designed. If you are lucky and that happened, sometimes you can solder a wire over the blown ground and it works fine. Sometimes that is not the case, or it blows something else. You would need to look at the bottom of the board for most amps.

Right double check everything outside the amp first.
