    Trying to repair this thing the thing is it broke like a year ago and i dont really know where to put what so can anyone help me with this ?
    Also there was this small resistor near it i dont know if it is from it or not ... ;D i have the missing transistor and light emiting diode but i dont know where to solder it ...

    Why not? Because it will be nearly impossible without a schematic - which may be very hard to find - or another similar unit to copy.

    How did the parts get separated in the first place? (Not that it matters, just curious how it came to be in pieces. )

    I did some study on your PCB and this is what I came out with...

    The transistor can either sit on the blue line or in the black line. Is the 1K resistor on top right the one that came out?

    Next you need to use an ohm meter to see continuity on the transformer. I think A-B is one coil and C-F another. What about D & E? Is there any continuity?

    The transistor exploded thatsw why I desoldered the low voltage side

    Can't check the continuity as I m not at home .You got the V+ and 0v in terminals wrong way

    I could only find one coil resistance without desoldering the transformer coils tho are connected somewhat like this i think
