Power light turns on, but the speakers pop and it turns off.

So I was letting my 5 yr old brother use the device (foolish, I know, but I'm just too nice a guy for my own sake), and he dropped it on the ground. It immediately shut off and now what's happening is I press the power button, the light goes on, stays for a few seconds like usual, but then the speakers "pop" and the whole thing is off again. I tried opening it up but couldn't find anything I could recognize as out of order, but then again I didn't really go that deep. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

You should check the ribbon cable connection also may have a bad/broken fuse. You will need to test current of the fuses if the ribbon cables are fully seated.
