No. Its probably a capacitor one of the main boards. I recently
purchased a very-good-condition T1910CS off of eBay for about $30
total (with shipping and handling) and moved the hard disk drive into
it. What is odd is that there is a bit of similarity with the fail
power-up and a working power-up - the working power-up seems to kick
in at the right moment and occasionally the working one fails to boot
in the same fashion as the non-working T1910CS; trying it again
immediately after works. :-/
