The odds are very high that every IC on the playback board and on the solenoid driver boards was instantly fried. No fuse would have blown in time to prevent the destruction.

Repair of those boards is possible but very difficult. It requires cutting of every pin with a Dremel Moto-Tool, removing each pin and cleaning solder from the holes for those ICs, installing sockets (optional) and replacing the ICs. The whole job entails time, patience and much cursing.
