xen, yes it is easily possible that this what is giving you trouble. Checking your images, it appears to be a 2R2 power choke coil. That would make it a inductance code : 2R2 = 2.2uH SMD coil. It is readily available at places like this. Hope this helps, good luck.

hello,

you are right it is an 2r2 smd coil...! Is there any solution how I can test this coil before I try to exchange it?

Have a nice day.

xen, unless you have an inductance meter, the only thing you can test is a go-no go situation. If you have an analog meter, set it X1 ohm and place the probes across the small coil. The meter should show some reading and thus continuity. All that will show, however, is that the winding is okay.
