If it doesn't work, then why buy it? Do you know exactly why it's not working? Just get a working board and call it good.

Grab one, see what happens, go from there. If the seller doesn't say anything about no refunds/returns, then you can always do that too and get that $10 back if you so desire.

I search eBay "worldwide" and never see them that low.
For $10 I would do it just to keep myself occupied playing with it, even if it didn't work.
