Thread: PC3.5 Power Issues

  1. #21


    Just my two cents. I would go for a massive cleanup on that board. Strip it all down, make sure there is no solder between pads.....everywhere. Then go simple, attach power main switch and speaker. Go from there.
    As a side question. Is there any part of your board getting really hot?

    I made the changes you suggested, still nothing. And I don't think my phone's camera did it justice.

    I've been working on that, actually. And no, it's pretty cool, temperature wise.

    Did you try a different switch?

    I'm no expert by any means, but here's my two cents: I think it might be beneficial to use a multimeter to test your switches, or to see where there is voltage on the board and where there isn't. That might help to isolate the problem.

    I've tried 3 different switches. I've also tried bridging the pads. I'm trying to get ahold of my friend who has a multimeter so he can come over and test it.
