From your photo it looks like the power transistor is blown up

5_4_2017_7_22_32_am-fqpri0tghtom2qr1ml2b2auw-4-0.jpg You may need to follow the circuit tracks and see if there are any other components blown up Maybe the resistors or capacitors
You need to ask yourself why did the speakers blow this up maybe there is a short circuit in the speakers ?

Iana mini rewind crank not spinning when advancing film

If the film is advancing you do not have a problem. It may be that the rewind button does not actually spin when you advance the film, because if it did and you have something caught on it when you are trying to do so you could really mess things up. Really, the rewind crank may only visibly spin in one direction.

Well, I have no idea why you would have two capacitors on a 500 watt amp but, did you charge the capacitors? Have you tried the amp without the capacitors? What size power wire are you using?

Im not sure if you a very knowledgeable of car audio but first make sure the rca's are plugged in!!!! Then make sure the gain is all the way up on your amp, well atleast some of the way!!!!! Maybe they were real dirty and decided to cut your rca's somewhere in the car so they llok like there still hooked up but maybe they really aint!!!!! maybe your amp is fried!!!! But remember it worked fine when you brought it to them!!!! They are trying to stick ya man!!!!

I hooked up power to the playstation 3 and i went to go and hook up the uav chords to the tv for audio and picture and the playstation 3 was smoking and my tv caught on fire

sounds like a horrible short im sorry.
Call sony if you were under warrenty.
It sounds like you had a faulty power supply and it really caused a mess.
Why would your tv catch on fire though? Their isnt and source of power that travels through rca's that can cause a fire through your tv.

Mabye your Tv was faulty..

Give sony a call.

Good luck
if you need any more help ask away

Bass control stopped working

on rockford amps, the bass control knob needs to be connected to get the maximum output (+18 db gain i believe). If you did this to the power wires, then yes, you may have at least damaged the bass control knob. Try replacing this to see if you get all of your gain back. If not, then you have damaged something inside the amp...maybe a capacitor or power supply inside. If that's the case, you'll need to get the amp looked at by an electronics repair technician or local stereo shop.
