i was attempting to tighten a nylon mounting nut on the board, next to the pin outs labelled 1 & 21, and clumsily managed to shear the adjacent small component off the board, which is lost forever
i do not expect it’s there for decoration, but the board seems to work okay on a brief test using the supplied usb-c cable as the source and power supply
is it possible to replace this component ? or return for repair ?
can i safely run the board without it, simply connected as detailed above, as there is no need to utilise the pin outs; the trace seems to run to the pin out at “21” but i can’t ascertain the other connection
please see the photos to identify the part
i welcome some assistance, as i am devastated to lose the use of this board (lucky i have 2… but the other one is for the main living area, and my study will have to use an inferior dac till i find some solution)!
