    My friend blew up his UBC3500XLT due to connecting it to a 12V Powersupply.
    Some smoke and a nasty smell was the result.
    The damage is shown on this foto:

    I opened my own radio where you can see the undamaged components.

    Can anyone identify the damaged components?
    What should i buy to replace the burned items?

    Like to hear from you,

    One is a diode, the other is a capacitor 220uF 10V, the diode will have blown and so will the capacitor, if you can replace them, you may be lucky and the scanner may still work.

    Maybe that's a 10 amp, 100 volt Shottky surface mount diode.
    If you squint your eyes just right, that circle with a star in it looks like a diode symbol.
