    Hello,
    I broke the ceramic capacitor from a Switch Lite, where the chip get vcc and gnd.
    What's the value of it?

    Thanks

    This is the capacitor where we solder the SX lite, up to the microSD.

    If you broke it trying to put in a Mod that supposedly does not require soldering, i can't imagine what you would do trying to change it ...

    Take him to a competent technician and stop playing technician!

    The SX Lite chips do require soldering.

    But for God's sake ... tin solder chips and scraped tracks. It is a disaster. If you don't have the right tools to work with, it's best to stop there yourself and get some better hands.

    No one knows about that capacitor values?

    I know is not neccesary to make the modchip works (you can solder directly to the pcb pads) but it looks kind of electrical protection SMD

    For what I could gather, these are decoupling capacitors for the SD card reader. Maybe there is some way we could figure these values out.

    Are you a troll or a junkie?

    I got this Switch from a customer who bought it "broken" for few dollars...

    Sadly no one know the value of this.

    @Newtman Can you do me a favor? Are you able to measure the two capacitors on the upper part of the image? The blue and the grey one. Just realize now that those two are missing on my board.

    I manage to measure the bigger one. It's value is 4.7μF. Don't know the specifics (if it needs to be 10V or 25V or even if it is X5R or X7R). Bough some 0805 to compare that is schedule to arrive this week; will update here if it is the same size.

    Wish me luck.
