Won't power on and charger light goes out when plugged in

This is a T6 Swagtron hover board.

It just stopped working while in use. I thought it was a loose wire, since it happened after someone hit something and fell off.

The battery was fully charged before it happened. Now, it won't power on at all. When it is plugged into the charger, the green light on the charger goes off. If I plug in the charger without plugging in the board, the green light on the charger is on. Then when I plug it into the board, I hear a pop sound and the charger light goes off. I'm thinking it is some type of short. Do you think it needs a new circuit board? Is there a way to test?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

charger light going out would indicate a shorted component on the circuit board
