Sparks while changing nozzle - Printer is not heating up anymore

Hi
today i wanted to change the nozzle on my new 3d printer for the first time and while doing it i accidentaly slipped while holding the heater block and it got sparks near it.
Now the printer is not heating up anymore no matter what i try. There is a red light which is lighting up when i press something (idk if thats normal or not) and then the fan is starting for like a second. After that nothing happens anymore. Can someone help me, please?
😭

Have you checked the fuses in the controller?

huhu

thanks for ur help. I contacted the support yesterday bc i paniced a bit. Seems like I broke the heater cartridge by accidentaly touching both cables at once :c the fuses were intact, though.

I hope that solves it.

You can check the heater cartridge with a multimeter. The internal resistance should be about 14.4 ohms. I would also check the wires for possible defects. You can get a new heater cartridge from Prusa but also from some other suppliers (24V, 40W).
