Default Looking for broken D2

I've fried my D2 circuit board.

I'm looking for a 16 Gig D2 that has a broken screen, or some other problem, but has a functional board inside.

I was hacking into my car stereo to add a aux input with a jack so I could plug my D2 in without an FM transmitter or, worse yet, a cassette adapter.

Ignoring that little voice in my head, I used my precious D2 to provide a signal into the stereo, instead giving the D2 12 volts right into the headphone jack. ouch!

The Wolfson codec chip, (WM8985G), has a portion blown out of it, but the rest of the board looks ok. In fact the D2 operates perfectly, just no audio. I can get a chip through mouser electronics, but my surface mount soldering skills are just not there.

I've had this D2 since Nov. of 2008. I doubt the warrenty will cover this!!
If I can find a board, this will be my best shot for a speedy recovery I think.

Please, If you have an orphaned d2, let the poor thing give life to an ailing, but much loved d2. Sign the organ donor card, contact me, make a few bucks. It's the right thing to do.
