    Sounds like something has been fried there, though if it’s part of the analogue circuitry, the console will not necessarily have any idea and will appear to function correctly.
    I’ve seen this happen before with bad/incorrectly wired connections and/or unearthed equipment that’s grounded itself through the signal path of the console.
    (for example, unearthed monitor speakers connected with either unbalanced cables or other connectors which short ground and pin3).

    As you’re already sending the unit in for repair, they’ll be able to let you know what’s wrong with the console, but I’d suggest checking there is no way any equipment could be trying to ground itself through audio cables, or you might hook it back up only for the same thing to happen!
