Default JR Quattro Buddy Box - Burned up?

While trying to setup my new JR Quattro as a buddy box, the battery pack fell out and broke part of the connector. When I plugged back in the battery, I accidentally plugged it in the wrong way. I saw just a little bit of smoke and I smelled something burning. Does anyone have any idea what component I might have burned up?

Thanks,
Gary

Power regulator most likley, if you follow the leads from the power connector back with a magnifying glass and a bright light you should be able to see where the smoke jetted out. Chips usually spurt at the side. If you can ID the chip there's a good chance you can replace it if you're any good with a soldering iron. Or just have a professional replace it, should NOT cost much to fix, if it is indeed just the regulator. If any of the control CMOS chips got fried, it's going to have to be factory repaired.
