Hello, Tayfun!

Have you repaired your mount?

I also have burnt my motherboard, but another way. By accident I pushed a ucb plug in hand controllers socket and burnet component L5.

Maybe you have any possibility to measure that components value?!

Thanks already, buddy!

It's an inductor, but as to its exact value, unless someone can measure it, or locate any markings then its going to be pot luck.  Some PCB designers used them as a fuse so should something get shorted (as per the above post) they blow, hopefully quick enough to save other expensive components.  You could simply try bridging L5 with a short length of wire, but without knowing how you damaged your board this fix could result in damage to the main processor.

Replacement inductors / Ferrite beads can be obtained form any electrical component supplier such as RS Components, Digikey, Farnells, or Rapid Electronics.
