Shorted Heater Wires - now printer down, beeping from piwer supply

I accidentally shorted one of the heater wires to the chassis as I was troubleshooting the latest problem with my Creatr. Sparks flew.

Now the printer will not connect and there is constant beeping from the power supply (the beeping stops if I pull the 4-pin PS connector on the main board.

Anyone know what may have been damaged and how to correct it?

I can replace any of the PCB components if needed if they can be identified!
