Question about Korg Music

Burnt ic chip on Korg microKorg pcb.

Hello, I have a Korg microKorg with a KLM-2333 (KLM-2333C) PCB. The IC5 chip and the C46 capacitor have overheated. The capacitor shouldn't be a problem as It has only bulged so I can still identify it to replace it. The IC5 chip has burnt and I cannot identify it to replace it. Any help would be good.

Hi Mate, I have the exact same problem, casued by wrong adaptor being connected by accident, did you manage to find what the code is on the IC5 chip ?, I can see NSV, but there is another letter or number before it but cant make it out as that where its burnt.

    Hi Mate, If you still need the information its korg part number is; 510324023008, and manufactures part is S-8520F30MC, costs £2.50, and £5 P+P. Hope this helps, this is in regards to IC5 on the Korg MicroKorg Keyboard.

    Where to find this, and or, do you have any of these extra lying around? Because everywhere I found has a minimum order of like 3000 at a cost of .49 US ea.

    I have the same problem, I changed the IC5 with the one in Anthony's link and it still doesn't work. Do you have any idea about what else could be broken?
