Question Wharfedale Vista 150 Soundbar.


Novice Member
Run into a bit of a problem with my soundbar.
Like a numpty, after unplugging it while cleaning, I accidentally plugged in the wrong power lead and smoked it.
I've had it apart and can see 3 blown components but I have no idea what they are due to the damage. And I'm unsure about any unseen damage.
Would anyone know where I can find a schematic for the circuit board?
Or, if someone has a Vista 150, be willing to identify the blown components from the pictures I've included?
Failing that it's going to be a case of trying to find a replacement circuit board?
Be a shame to have to just chuck it away.
Any help would be very much appreciated.

Very unlikely you'll be able to source a circuit and/or replacement board for what is really a budget soundbar.
Even if you identified and replaced the components (looks like a couple of resistors and a transistor) chances are there's a short-circuit semiconductor in the area and they'll smoke again.
