You had a semiconductor failure, bro'. Dunno what that part used to be, but it is a wire now, most probably connecting a power rail to ground (probably either +5 or +3.3). That is the reason the thing shuts down after about two seconds, I would guess.

In any case, you're taking the proper course of action at this point, IMHO.
