    So... Are you asking where to find info? Are you asking for the smd part number? Are you asking anything?

    Welcome to AAC, James!
    If the wire started getting hot,
    1) it's the wrong wire to use,
    2) the camera is faulty and drawing too much current, or
    3) it's the wrong power supply for the camera.

    I'd resolve that before trying to find an unknown component to fix an unknown circuit in the cable.

    If possible I would return the camera to the place of purchase. If that's not possible contact the manufacturer and get the specs on the camera. They may be aware of a possible recall or issue.
