vesc 4.12 disaster

hi guys,

 

i have FSESC V4.12 for 4 months and it was working great in combination with VX1 remote controller. VX1 receiver has VIN sens wire that is connected directly to positive lead of the battery for battery information on remote. so, today that pin came loose from receiver and touched 5v pin of CAN connector and now vesc wont turn on and now 5v rail is shorted the ground. ive checked only TVS diod and it look like its shorted too. 

 

please if u have any suggestion on how can i fix this and check what is blown i would really appreciate

The simplest fix will probably be a new VESC. VBatt on the +5V rail is pretty bad. If you're desperate to try and recover this then you may have to replace everything attached to the +5V rail which will be hard and fiddly.
