Hello,

I have this issue with the case of the Nokia Earbuds BH-605 where the battery is not charging anymore. I noticed that a diode has fallen off but I can't find it anymore. Below are some pictures.

I'm an absolute novice regarding to electronics, is there a way to determine which diode I would need to get it working again?

I found a video of someone disassembling the case and pointing to the exact diode that is missing on mine. I asked the creator if they could see what the writing, but no success. They suggest maybe using a wire instead of the diode, but would that not cause any problems on the long run?
I also can't understand Russian.

hi Techy,
I would advise not to to use a link wire to replace the diode.
A typical diode would be 1N4004 in SMT [surface mount technology], if you have the space inside the unit use a a regular 1N4004 or equivalent type.

I've ordered some 1N4004 and will let you know if works again.
Thank you for your time!
