Well it had to happen when i was all suped up about my 3d printer. talk about a buzz kill. anyway i was working with the ez-b last night and a wire from another project must of touch the ez-b where the regulator/heatsink is and POP! freaked me out. i thought i fried the ez-b but it was the regulator only that poped. i need to know the make and model of the regulator so i can replace and install. the ez-b is working fine but wont give any voltage to the servos. i can run them on with the external power source. any help will be appreciated, a link to where to buy or if radio shack carries it. thanks in advance.

I have found a few conversations, tutorials and activities that may help with your question. Take a look at these links. I've sorted them by what I believe to be most relevant but that is not always the case as I'm still learning.

I ordered 10 of them for the EZ-B boards (5) I have from Mouser.com. They are $2.02 plus $5 USPS shipping when you order 10. If just ordering 1 the price goes up to $2.47.
