    I was sent a 3DS to repair a bad charging port, simple fix right? Well after getting it installed I tried plugging it up to charge and nothing happened. So I strip it down to the bare board and plug it up only to discover this little SMD transformer that's part of the charging circuit gets extremely hot instead.
    The transformer has continuity on all 4 legs which doesn't sound right. Also the capacitor directly underneath it has continuity, pretty sure that's bad too yes?

    So anyway, these two parts are the likely culprits and I need help Identifying them so I can buy replacements.

    Thank you ever so much for your time.

    BONUS! The fuse at F1, the transformer and the capacitor all have continuity with each other.
