Hey there anonymous,

The low pH and high concentration of your nutrients highly likely are what damaged your lettuce crop.

You have nothing to lose by trying to save the lettuce plants. I do suggest pruning off any brown, rotted or slimy roots.

Then do a complete nutrient change with fresh batch.

Cross your fingers and wait!

Good luck!
