 Did something very stupid...

I was installing an "old school" Nakamichi TD-700 cassette deck... I can't freakin believe i did this... I connected the positive power wire from my car battery to the negative supply of the stereo, and connected the negative battery supply to the red wire of the stereo... I was using a same colored wire for the 2 hot leads from the battery and had them crossed. the positive lead from the battery did have a in-line 15A fuse. of course, the Nakamichi fuse blew. i corrected the wire connection and now I have distortion sounding from the car stereo when playing both FM or the cassette. the distortion gets worse when I move the balance knob all the way left or right. what happened to the electronics inside the stereo and is this an easy or difficult fix for a tech? Sincerly, Stupid-In-Dallas

There is a simple resistor/capacitor paired trace your + and - connections inside, and you will be amazed to see they are connected.  Tear it all out or replace the cap, and the unit will function again.  With the capacitor burned out, you are getting less power to the unit.
