AV420 will not charge...blown component

Post by mastervodkaman »

I have an aV400 that will not charge. I have opened the unit up and a small surface mounted component near the charging pin appears to have blown.............can anyone please tell me the details of this component so I can replace it.

many thanks

It is most likely a surface mount fuse since the MMJB and AV300 had the same. You could check by putting a temporary short around it and seeing if the charging light then comes on. I don't know the value but max peak current on the larger 2.5 hard drives could be just over an amp so I would guess 1 or 1.5A might be suitable?
