Ich, I guess in that case you would have to start with the most fragile
pieces in close circuit proximity and work your way out until you find
something that didn't die. Hopefully the transisitor or whatever was
driving that part of the circuit let out its magic smoke in a fuse like
manner and protected everything else, and it didn't toast any
I don't think I have ever had the pleasure of troubleshooting a resistor
that blew closed, but I have run into diodes that did.
