Seems to me that there was some kinda short circuit or an over voltage situation over there.
see how the power side of the pcb is all burnt up, that generally happens because of the conditions i mentioned.

looks like the square thing next to the blue cap was a part of the fault. I think it is a transformer. i suggest you add a fuse in front of it to prevent this.
