Did I fry my ESC??

Hello,
I've been messing around with a Diatone Roma F5 that I crashed and, in the process of attempting to resurrect it I have noticed that my ESC does not play its portion of the little song when I plug my battery in. The flight controller lights up and plays it's portion. It doesn't look as though either the VTX or the RX are powering up. I can connect to Betaflight with no errors. I'm pretty new to all this and so I wanted to ask a group with experience...

...does it sound as though I need a new ESC? Are there any other tests I may have missed that may show me the way to a healthy piece of hardware?

Any help greatly appreciated.

If you have continuity between any battery pad and any motor pad then your esc is fried. And the obvious check for any broken wires etc. If your VTX and RX is not powering on and you hear a quiet high pitched buzzing your BEC is broken and you will need a new (whatever is powering those) or a separate BEC.
