Becker 780 in 420SEL gone goofy

Hey all,

One quickie here...

The other morning when I went to leave the house, I got in the 420SEL and when I turned the key the radio came on by itself and none of the switches would work on the radio. When I shut the car off, the radio stayed on (no sound either). So I yanked the fuse under the hood for now. Unfortunately, one tool I am missing in my workshop is the Becker faceplate tester, so I was wondering if anyone on this forum might immediately know whether this is a symptom of a failed faceplate (hopefully) or failed chassis. If the chassis is bad, she'll be receiving an Alpine or something else that actually works reliably!
