    I have a Philips MP3 player, type KEY003, which is made around the STMP3410
    decoder chip. The player stopped working one day. The green led blinks only
    once as the stick is inserted to an USB port.

    I opened the case and found one chip fried. Can anyone help identifying the
    chip? Its surface mount IC, 8-pin, measures 3 x 3 mm and has letters RCS
    etched. The chip is located near playback/off swich.

    Any help appreciated.

  2. I don't thinks anyone's going to be able to help you. Time for a new one.

    My standard advice - stay away from Philips. They are the junkiest products
    for the most part, from the absolute WORST sort of company.

    It's too bad that the quality of their products is so poor, because they
    deserve credit for doing their part to try to curb the manufacturing of
    "copy controlled" music CD's.

  4. What makes you think the chip has been fried?

    The sticks I?ve seen that were dead had only bad solder connections on the
    USB connector. Carefully resolder and give it a try.
