It sounds like there may be a short on the input board. Check out this guide for access. Check for corrosion or other signs of damage. Using some rubbing alcohol, clean the contacts. If there is a large amount of corrosion, you can use some steel wool to try and get rid of it.

Good luck, and let us know how it works out.

Make sure if you use steel wool you clean thoroughly to remove any steel particles. +
