Powered off SystemBlue, only power led comes on now - JimK5KTF - 2021-11-11

Hi all.
I was doing some reorganizing of my cabling, all was working fine, powered off my System Blue, moved cabling around, got all nice and neat, powered back on and now only power LED lights up.  I let it set for a couple hours while I went off and did other things, but still, just 1 LED lit.
Double checked all cables, everything looks fine.

Any hints/tips/tricks to diagnose and/or get working again?

I found a post about trying to get it into some mode by holding reset and boot0 at power on.
Took it out of the case and tried that. just red power solid and gps red internal blinking.

Then I brushed against the ST Processor... QUITE WARM.
Actually hot (cant take my thick skin more than 4-5 seconds else get burnt...)

So Im guessing  the board is toast?
If so, whats the process for buying a replacement?
