    So I recently acquired a Switch Lite that was showing no signs of life. It seemed dead but when i took it apart I found a FFC inside wasn't connected. Reconnected it and it works fine. Happy days!
    Accept now I've noticed the volume up button doesn't adjust the volume.

    I have traced all lines from the volume button back to the switch lite motherboard and there is a component missing right by the ffc connector (see red ring in the image) which happens to be where the trace from the volume up button leads.

    I'm not sure what this component would be.

    Does anyone have any ideas??

    I tested the component (circled yellow in the image in the first post) but it was open circuit, so I guess not a resistor, zero ohm link etc.

    Then I found an image of the same area of the board on Google and it seems to be a different component anyway. It's black in colour.

    I've seen similar looking components nearby but I'm not having any luck getting a good reading from them with my multi meter for some reason.

    If anyone has a switch lite apart would you mind trying to measure it for me?

    That's fantastic jkyoho! I'll order one in and then let you know in a few days if it works!

    It looks as though it should be an 0201 package.
    The ones I ordered the other day were wrong.
