    Hi,

    I need a little help identifying this component. It had 3 pins on the bottom that ran the width of the component. There were no markings on the PCB that would give me a hint so I don't know what type of component it is.

    I've uploaded a photo of it, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    My guess, a crystal!
    Maybe 40.55 Kc (KHz)?

    Yep it's a SMD ceramic resonator or SMD ceramic filter. Both come in a 3-pin package.
