Even if you zapped it , you'll get if fixed, no doubt.  Hey, I wish I had a nickel for every time I plugged something in backward.  

You just proved you're human when you did.  Welcome to the human league ;-)

If I were to make a guess, your audio chip is the thing most likely to have gotten zapped but I could be wrong.

Thanks Bobby, so silly, I thought I had it right, no idea how I did this. Feeling a little defeated. 😁

Might have.  I don't see any reverse polarity protection in the schematic online.  I hope that there was a diode added in later models that would have prevented a reverse polarity damage situation.

Those that have a better knowledge of the circuit will be able to give you a better answer.
