When you say "pull out board", I think audio boards on the front left of the
machine, but from the rest of your
description it sounds like you fried a capacitor on the main power board,
which is common for Steenbecks.
You could send the board for repair to Dwight Cody (in Cape Cod) or Paul
Tomasko (in upstate NY; service tech for NYU who
makes it into the city at least once a week). Paul services our machines.
