    I'm repairing a small circuit and want to test this component. Unfortunately, I don't know what it is!

    There isn't much of an identifying number on it, just 2.00 which I guess is a value. I'm hoping someone will recognize the part or the tiny symbols that appear on either side of the value.

    The part has three leads and is very small. I included a US dime as reference.

    Thanks, all!

    My guess is that it's a 2.00 MHz ceramic resonator.

    See here, and here.

    Of course! Good thinking! Any idea how I could test it? Is my only option powering it and hooking an oscilloscope?

    it needs to be part of an oscillator circuit
    you would commonly find them between 2 pins of a microprocessor or similar chip that requires timing
