    Can anyone help with identifying this part?

    I`m thinking it`s a Thermistor (going by the schematic symbol) but can`t work out the specs 26V 1608 ?

    It`s reading as open.

    probably one of the variations of a MOV Metal Oxide Varistor

    Sir Africangrey . . . .aka Phil . . . .

    Unless it’s being a SECURITY breach / or / compromise . . . why don’t ye give us ye olde brand and model number of your unit ? possibly View Sonic ?

    And . . . assuredly . . . . you’re opening the door to the WRONG parrot cage, as this unit should be good.

    It`s reading as open.

    By utilizing supplied referencing, you can see that the unit only avalanches and starts any consequential conducting at up about the 26VDC level, or if using RMS AC, only about 18-20 VAC should show both the node peaks clipping.
