I need a datasheet for a diode (EB08) in a DO41 case style. Thanks.

Sorry, I had a misprint. It is ER08.

Where is it used? I couldn't find any info. neither on internet nor in any of the semiconductor cross reference databases I have. I doub't whether the number is right or the diode is very old and has become obsolete.

The part number is right, and I woundn't guess that it is to old, I mean, it is in a fairly new DVD player.
The only reason I say it is a diode is that it has a cathode side. But running the diode check on my meter, it shows short (black to cat, and red to an) with a voltage drop of .4v. And if my memory serves me right a diode (if silicon) shold drop .6 to .7v. And if it is a germanium it should drop .3v. And I have no clue if it would be a zener.
It is in the switching power supply, but it is not the bridge diodes. I would like to place the schematic here, but I do not have the proper equipment.
I also looked everywhere but couldn't find it. I was hoping that maybe by chance someone had that problem before and had located a datasheet before.
But anyway, I would still apprieciate it if anyone of you would be able to help me.
Thanks.

It's not E808, but thank you for trying to help. Hopefully I can get a general idea of what it is and see if there is another diode I can replace with.
Again, I thank you for atleast trying.

See the link above E808. Its ER series of diodes. The description says they are fast recovery diodes. Just have a look.

Sorry I forgot to thank you for the site above. It was actually helpful in helping me figure out the general idea of what it is.
