Trying to repair my old Motorola Xoom.
« on: January 06, 2015, 05:34:36 am »
About 3 months ago I noticed the screen on my tablet was completely dead. So i went inside a chip had went up in magic smoke but i have no idea what kind of chip it is, I want to buy a replacement chip to put in it so it can work again. Everything works besides the screen and i can plug it into  HDMI.

I see "(triangle)AY" across the front, and "V8" across the side in that picture.  Google doesn't get me anywhere though.

Maintain your old electronics!  If you don't preserve it, it could be lost forever!

Well you have it in front of you and we have a blurry small picture.  Can you get a better picture maybe with macro mode and a bright light overhead?
