Default drill charger burned, pics included, help!

I am uploading a pic. There is a white, powdery substance on two parts. And wax around another. Anyone got any ideas? Thanx!

If anyone can fix it, I will send it to em. If the parts and labor are reasonable. Thanx!

My drill charger for my Makita went out awhile back and I just kept an eye out on ebay and local pawn shops. I put a few bids in on some sweet deals but didn't get them. Then one day I found the whole set with an extra battery for about $45, which is about what one pays for a new charger. Now I got 2 drills, 3 batteries and a charger. Plus the new drill has the quick chuck instead of the keyed chuck. It came in real handy when putting up my new fence since both my son and I had a drill to put screws into the boards.

Otherwards, I don't know what that stuff is on the board.

Does the unit do anything? Does light come on?
Let me know.

I just talked to my computer repair guy and he thinks he can fix it. He's on the way over now to take a gander at it. I have two chargers down, if either could be repaired I would be far ahead in the game. All I can do is hope and pray.


It doesn't do anything. No lights, no smells (not yet, but I am gonna leave it plugged up to see ). The black upright item near the large yellow wire, with the 1/8" hole in the aluminum, is that a heat sink? It has white powder on it too, like the 3/4" square item, but it has been out in a storage building for a while, and could be corrosion.

This runs a circular saw and a cordless drill. If it could be fixed for $20 or so I am all for it.

If he can't handle it, I will get back to ya. Thanx for the time, and Happy New Year!
