Thomas, yes that is a part that could be the cause for it. It is reference designator FL10 which is a 120OHM 210MA fixed inductor in a 01005 package. Go with that first. It's a lot easier to replace that one than U2. Make sure that you clean your board properly with isopropyl alcohol etc. while you are replacing the inductor.

Really, you are so great! Thanks! One last question, think you hear this one a lot, where can i find and order the 120 OHM 210MA fixed inductor?

Again thank you very much!


Of all places, you can get it from Amazon Of course, my choice would be this one.
