Unhappy Replacement Chips

I have a e250 that fried. I've taken it apart and I believe I have found the problem. A small chip w/ writing on it that looks like "KGJ". I'm not totally sure b/c the writing is very very small. I would like to replace the chip but I have no idea on where to get one. I've googled it and can't find anything. Does anybody have a detailed circuit diagram? I don't want to have to buy a broken one just to get a small chip. Thanks.

You can look at www.rockbox.org for what chip it might be. They have lots of info on the e200 series.

If you don't know what chip it is, how do you know it's bad, or that it's the source of your problems? Not trying to be a smart*ss, just wondering what diagnosis technique or testing equiptment you used.

I doubt this will fix your problem.
