Does anyone out there know where or if there's a source for motherboards for the RCA DWD490RE? I have one with a broken card reader. I also shorted it trying force it to read a card and everything on this board is too small and close to try to solder if I could find the part. So, I wonder, if the board can be purchased?

Outside of RCA, Sony or an authorised service shop, you're probably left scanning eBay or the garage sales for a cheap used model.

You might be better off trying to identify the card slot part # and finding a replacement. Now I wish I'd written down the details when I had my unit in pieces :eek:

If you're lucky, you might find one at Digikey www.digikey.com, but I think you also mentioned that you'd fried one or more other components - perhaps the Phillips smart card interface chip located near the card slot?

You should also be able to find that part, but you may want to start practising your soldering skills.
