Thread: Smoke when Clash Sensor goes off...No LED

    Angry Smoke when Clash Sensor goes off...No LED

    I wired up a FX Yoda sound board. I haven't removed the board from the casing. I plan on using the battery pack and switch of the FX.

    When I hold the batteries in place, the LED won't light, and when the clash sensor goes off, some smoke comes out.

    One of the pins I popped out in the removal seems to be inside because when I shake it, I hear it.

    I am really getting sick of all these wiring problems...

    I am not even sure how to open the casing the board is in....

    I am just about completely fed up with this whole saber idea.

    Any help?

    If it werent for the fact that the LED doesn't light up i'd say FEATURE!

    What exactly are you trying to do with this soundboard, anyway? Are you converting the Yoda FX to Luxeon, or are you using the electronics in a custom saber?

    Got a question? Start Here. Have you tried the Thread Index yet? Most questions can be answered there.

    Unhappy Uses and Reqs

    I am using the inner assembly of the yoda in my custom saber. I have made it so it will fit perfectly and I was all ready to put it in when this started.

    Mind you, up until I cut the LED strip off, it was working fine.

    Talking oops, but help still needed

    I was wrong. I screwed up the wiring.

    It works but for one issue. The lights stays on and the clash sensor won't work.

    Any suggestion?

    Default fried

    it sounds like you shorted out the board and fried the clash sensor somehow. Clash sensor could probably be cut off and a new one wired in.

    Question Are you sure?

    Are you sure? I just ask because as I mentioned before, I screwed up the wiring so it was a bit of a pain to rewire the setup. If that is the problem, I have no issues with just chopping off the clash sensor. At least I will have power up/down and hum/motion sounds.

    Besides, I don't know where to get a clash sensor...

    Default theory

    no it is just a theory. It is hard to tell without the board in front of me. Maybe someone has an extra clash sensor in a scraps collection.

    it sounds like you fried the sensor somehow. try to re do the sensor wiring. if you don't think it'll work try a new sensor.

    Lightbulb ok, final problem....

    Ok, I checked one of the wiring bits and it had come apart (purple wire to clash sensor).

    Holding the two ends together, the clash sensor works.

    Problem is, light is still on....
