I accidentally touched my laptop's (IdeaPad 700) battery port on the motherboard with metal pliers. There was a spark, and now the laptop wont turn on if the battery is plugged into the motherboard. If I disconnect the battery and plug the charger in, it works fine. Is my battery sorted [shorted?], or did I mess up the socket on the motherboard?
Here's a picture of the slot and where the pliers' ends were grabbing the socket: View: https://imgur.com/a/ztHXVHb

If it's not possible to tell from this, can I test it somehow, or do I have to get it to a repair shop?
