    I am trying to identify a part on a board that has gone bad. I believe this to be a thermistor (RT - resistor, temperature) and may be current limiting. It has only two contacts. I was unable to find anything on google about this part. Any help in identifying either the manufacturer or the part specs would be greatly appreciated. Here is the link to the pic.

    I noticed that other requests similar to this where placed in this lobby so that's why I am posting here.

    Thanks, Dave

    Measure its resistance, it may be 50K ohms

    Dave,
    How did you get the picture?

    I've tried to take pics of several components, with several cameras, and no luck.

    Is it taken through a magnifying glass?

    Thanks,
    Gary

    Definitely a polyswitch. Thats a Tyco Electronics logo on the right, looks like an upside down V over another V. Check the spec sheet on Tyco's website for what the 5.0 means. In the TE polyswitches I've encountered its a current rating.
