    Usually someone in your situation would open up the stereo, look for the source of the smoke, and determine what caused the problem before trying to use it further or throwing money at parts.

    You should probably take it to someone who knows what they're doing.

    Maybe he can push the smoke back in.

    Unplug it from wall outlet FIRST.
    Then open it up.

    Something was most likely passing more current than it could handle and made for.

    Why, who and where can better be boxed in on by viewing a picture of the board in question. It could be something simple but it could mean that buying a new piece would be less costly.

    Use the standard repair method for consumer electronics; unplug and place in waste receptacle then purchase again, new or used. ;)
