I was putting my pcb v2 (cytron/nano) in tractor and very foolishly connected Battery v12 incorrectly. After turning on I heard a click (probably the relay) and then slight burnt smell. I see no obvious burns on pcb but now I can’t power up cytron and don’t know where to start troubleshooting. Don’t have a ton of spare parts either .
Any thoughts on parts to replace? Any help would be great !
Haha ! I’ve done same stupid thing a few months ago , check this Tips and tricks on how to assemble PCB v2 - #31 by Tooki57 . If you are lucky , just repair the track with a wire .
Thanks for the tip! What did you end up doing to fix? I tried going from onoff switch to d3 but keep having same issue.
I wonder if it is something to do with power in? Where are you drawing your power from? I am taking from tractor battery but am wondering if this is too much power for the board or something. I keep blowing fuses.
I have just the lines between on/off and d3 , but i justed reverse polarity of power .
check every connection , the polarity of diodes, condensators and voltage regulators , then check ,and re check , there s probably an error somewhere …I use a direct wire from battery. If everythings good , a 15A fuse should be enough .
If you use cytron md13s it might be burnt as it is not protected against wrong polarity, so take wires off the cytron and try again, if everything else is correct.
