Range Video Rx not working after storage

I started pulling my FPV equipment off the shelf to gear up for this seasons FPV flights. To be sure everything was working I wanted a dry run but found my 900 mHz dual output receiver is not powering on? Plugged into 12V supply no led's come on and no video signal is being sent out either output.

The unit is less than a year old so I thought if there was a simple fix someone might know.

Usually this happens when you supply it with reverse polarity power and let the magic smoke
out. Focus on the board traces near where the power comes in. I've vaporized one there
before, and simply added a jumper to bypass the damaged trace.

Hopefully this is the shot you had in mind? I dont see any signs of heat or smoke. When I plugged it in I never heard or smelled anything either.
