HDMI Monitor Problem

I have no experience with electronics but thought I'd post here to see if anyone can help. Thanks in advance for any advice, much appreciated.

I have a Dell S2415H monitor and was trying to use a HDMI splitter between the monitor and a TV. I accidentally powered the HDMI splitter with a 12v power supply instead of the required 5v, and whilst doing so the splitter has fried a component on the main board of the monitor through the HDMI cable. The monitor has now been discontinued so it's tricky to find a replacement, but as I use it as a dual monitor setup I really need it to be fixed to sit alongside my other monitor and to avoid having to replace both.

The front of the board seems fine but the culprit seems to be on the rear side which I've circled. On my other identical monitor the component is labelled 50H1G.

Any help in finding a solution would be greatly appreciated.
