I have asked my friend to take a picture. will follow up
But I am curious about the schematic part of such circuit. How does
the subcirciut work. No only in oder to fix it, more like the
I was thinking that the burn component were a fuse-like thing, which
would be sacrificed in order to protect the parts behind.
After discussing with my co-worker I think the hardware vendor would
pay more attention or effort on fuse-like component, since the
connector alone is really hard enough to connecte in the reverse way
which my friend did. I can't do that on my pc ;-(
Any schematic reference would be really helpful.
