...and smokes it. Does anyone know exactly what component(s) will be fried? I took it apart and saw the obviously smoked component which reads (on my other Gigabeat, the dead one is totally black) "LTQT" across the top and "e3" on the bottom right corner. This appears to be a step-down DC/DC converter. I requested some samples at linear.com and will give replacing this a try at work.
The hard drive still works and no other components are visibly burnt... is there any hope to save this one?
