    I was replacing my RAMPS board and to get the heated bed going again and, I found that the +11A terminal was burned out.

    Do I need to replace the mating connector too, since it also is charred? If so, what type of connector is it?

    Is this strictly a RAMPS board problem or should I replace the power supply too? I just don't want to hook everything up and blow out a brand new board.

    Depending on where you live, RAMPS boards and combo boards are cheap, just replace the board and don't try to fix it.

    It is either the RAMPS or the heater itself and normally it is the RAMPS

    I'm sorry if there was any confusion. I was already replacing the RAMPS and this is the connector I wanted to know whether i should replace: IMG_3525.jpg
    The new board did not come with one. I was able to find the markings on the part when I looked at it in better lighting and just went ahead and replaced it. everything works now.

    Solved
