    Recently I got my FPV system up and running perfectly. I decided to add miniOSD and the PMU V2. I plugged in the battery on the phantom and everything went as planned besides a small component on the video transmitter sizzling to a crisp almost instantly. I have the TS832 transmitter. The display still comes on but it no longer transmits video. Besides the small spot where this component was, the board and components appear to be fine. I'm pretty sure i wired the video input improperly and I'm hoping someone can tell me what component this is as mine is mostly powdered. I circled the component in the picture. Thank you for any help you have to offer.

    It's a capacitor. It's fried, and you probably wired up the power wrong. Time for a new transmitter :(
