What went POOF! in my charger?

I plugged a 4s lipo into port 2 of my Venom dual 10 amp charger yesterday and I heard a tiny pop. Ever since that I get a broken connection error message. I took the case apart and nothing looks burnt. Could it be a capacitor that I might replace myself?

It does it with or without the balance leads and won't go into any charge, discharge or storage charge.
It has to be something inside the charger but what?

There is a rather large capacitor on each port, I suppose I could take the one on port 2 out and test it.
