I took apart a splitter for a pair of BOSE earbuds, and discovered a small circuit board inside. While investigating, two of what I believe to be inductors fell off and I was wondering why they fell off, how to indicate which side is negative, and by what method should re-attach them?
I do have a hot-air nozzle, so I'll just go get some SMT solder paste. Structurally I will try to make do with the plastic left over from disassembly and some heat shrink tubing. If I'm unsuccessful I'll do just that and bypass the contacts. Thank you.
