fried taz

my taz 5 shorted out at the ceramic heater. the pi fuse is good, do i just need to replace the whole board, it looks like the pins are carrying the voltage directly which cant be good when shorted.

There are two very tiny fuses on the board that look like grains of rice with copper foil at each end. You likely fried one of those fuses. They are inexpensive and easy to replace, but be aware it is possible to grab part of the metal contact of the socket when extracting one and inadvertently pull out that section of the socket, ruining your day and your board. Then you end up buying a new one and it is not fun.
