Boohoo, I just killed my 50D :'( :'( :'(

I'm kind of a technical guy, and I disassembled my 50D to repair the shutter button (well, it needs a cleaning from time to time)... I've done this a couple of time before, and everything went smooth everytime...except this one!

After removing the top cover, I heard a big electric chock! I forgot to discharge the flash capacitor and somehow, it bumped on something on the camera, but don't know what.

I still repaired the shutter button, but after putting everything back together, the camera does not power up: it's dead. Probably the main pcb died after the shortcut...

I'm absolutely p1s sed off I really loved this camera, it was in mint condition.
Now, I'm gonna hang myself.

So long...
