Sorry for the blurry pictures! Here's an explanation: The red wire from the LCD is connected to the positive terminal on my supply. The black is connected to ground. The power supply is supplying 9V at 2A max. I've tested this time and time again, and recently, a small IC on the back has been smoking. Also, after closer inspection, I noticed one IC on the back is severely scratched. Pictures are included.

What should I do? Can a replacement be arranged?
