    I dropped my EZ flash 3-in-1... the NOR stopped working... that's not important though... Anyway, I opened it up because I thought the the battery might be lose... It was... I fixed that, but then I noticed that there is a circuit component missing in the R7 spot just to the left of the battery.

    My question is: Does anyone know what that component is, or any specifics about it?
    Does anyone feel like opening up an old cart and looking for me?(obviously I can't tell what mine is because it's not there)

    I don't thinks it replaceable, but I'm not in the mood to shell out another 18 bucks at the moment.

    Any Info would be helpful... Thanks!

    First link in sig. Compare yours to the boards I got. Your most likely gonna need to replace it.

    R7 would be a resistor.

    Unless you got skills in SMT, fixing it would be out of the question. Your option left is to get a new 3in1.

    Skills aren't a problem.

    I just need to know the value of the resistor...

    SMT resistors comes only in packs of 100 or 1000. unless you live near a FRYs or something you can buy a small pack of 50 or so.

    You can try mouser.com or digikey.com to find the resistor you need.


    I am looking for my meter, so I can tell you what resistor you need.

    I broke one of the battery connectors off mine trying to swap the battery around. Nobody around here will repair it and I don't have the facilities to do so, guess I'm replacing it when the money's available.

    Crap, my meters don't read SMT that small.

    It has 102 printed on the top though. I can read that.

    You should just spend another 20 bucks for a new 3in1.

    Thanks for the number, that's all I need... the code is just like normal color bands, so it's 1,000 ohms (10 x 10^2)

    I found a pack of 10 for 59 cents, so it's cheaper to buy the resistor...

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!
