Suppressor Diode
#1
By carelessness I injected 10v on my plate. She does not care.

The circuit is shorted. Anyone know, what is the board's suppressor diode?

There is a schematic for the tinker board.
Light blue words might be a link. Have you try to click on them? Big Grin

The scheme is incomplete and there are no component locations either.

Sorry, that is what is published. There are some kind of protections, but I doubt there's one for over-voltage supply.
You might prepare one whit a zener (rather robust) and a fuse. The fuse will blow once the zener will start to conduce. Or even a better system that will short the input when the voltage will exceed the limits, so the fuse will be blown.

I wonder if there is any way to fix my TB?

Try using the 0v and 5v gpio pins and power via them, this may bypass any fuses etc

I seriously doubt there will be a fix after suck strike, unless your are able and equipped to work on SMT and find where to replace damaged components.... Otherwise anything would go for a higher cost than buying another brand new TB.
