    My mp3 player broke.
    I opened it up and noticed the cover for one of the components fell off. I'm guessing that's why it doesn't work.
    It's looks like minuscule box, the outer edges are raised. The black lid sits on top.

    Does anyone know what that part is called?

    Aside from replacing it, is there anything I can do to fix it?

    Yeah, thats actually an IC, and you've destroyed it. You need to replace that whole part.

    IC stands for integrated circuit and your screwed. I can't ;locate the part with that number.

    Fixed.

    If you can't find that exact part or have a schematic then good luck. It'd be more worth your time to just buy a cheap replacement device.

    Even if you could find a replacement part, you couldn't just solder the new part on there. It's a surface mount device, SMD, not through-hole like larger parts may be. Damn near impossible to solder without experience.

    May I ask where you looked?

    Is this not something I can just get from google or ebay, and then solder it into place? Or is this a rare, hard to find part ?

    Read my post. Unless it has pins that go through to the bottom of the board, you won't be able to de-solder and re-solder a new part.

    What brand MP3 player is it?
