I'm not sure exactly how it died. I've been working with the board for a year and a half...could have just run out of juice. It didn't recieve a surge or anything of that nature as far as I know. I work for a working band, and whenever It's not in use it's unplugged. I have them working well enough for now, but I don't have as much control over the them as previously. As for the cables, we've already run into that snag and corrected the cables.
Thanks for the advice.
