Hi Big John
This is a nice reference series amp with a decent phono preamp stage. It is unusual to see a phono stage get damaged in this way.... but Murphy's law tells us "If it can be blown up, then someone will do it". I recommend that you do fix it. First up, perhaps check the settings for the preamp on the rear of the amp(from recollection). Be sure that you have it in moving magnet (mm) mode if you are using a MM cartridge.
Although its been a few years, My recollection is that there is a separate power supply for the phono preamp, with maybe even power regulators on on the actual preamp board. First check would be here to see if both DC rails are present for the phono Preamp stages. Most common failure here is heat stressed cracked/dry solder joints.
You need a good HiFi/Audio tech to have a look at it for you if the problems run deeper than DC supply for the preamp. Good luck. A FixYa rating is a great reward for my time to address your problem. Cheers

Try this, it may work for you.
1.)Plug the unit into your mains voltage.
2.)Depress the enter and advanced surround buttons (on the front panel of receiver) at the same time for
at least 2 seconds, you should hear the relay tick and front panel should light up.
