Question my APE wont turn on?

i dunno what it can be, i dont c any physical evidence of the circuit being damaged, i took it out 11/4 on a cold morning at about 50*f, and it wouldn't wanna turn on, i changed the battery assuming it was that, then when it did finally turned on, and shot a few rds., the firebolt broke in half, sticking out the tail of the bolt from the donut end of the ion...
how can this be, i took it home and cleaned all the insides and it wasn't dirty at all, put it all back and the board wont turn on for nothing, here's what i need to ask and know.

1. do i send it in to the company
2. send the ion w/the board instead

can someone lmk if they've encountered something similar, thx...

Make sure your membrane pad is correctly inserted into the slot. Meaning that all the wires are directly into the corresponding slot and that no wires are pinched, cut or missing.

If you have any further problems contact APE and let them know the problem and customer service will handle it accordingly. www.goapeonline.com is the website, the forums should be back up soon.

so it has arrived, and i installed it once again... i guess it was the membrane pad, it turns on once again, with all my settings still saved.
even if i wanted ape to send me one, how could i contact them when their website is still down, all u can do is purchase things.
