I figured I’d start a separate thread instead of continuing to post in the dv6 thread.
Well it seems electronics and I don’t mix, I’ve screwed up something else, you’d think I’d learn after having to replace my kweld from a short.
I seem to have shorted my dv6, I thought I was good, it’s in its own case, I had the vx1 receiver on one side of the enclosure and the antispark on the other, the dv6 in the middle, the way I had the wires run it was tight and I thought I was good keeping components separate and snug, I didn’t tape anything down for the test run, which was my mistake I think, but I’m not 100% sure that was the fault.
Well I went for my first ride on the mountain board after finally getting it together, got speed wobbles, laid it down,just kinda slid a bit, nothing crazy, and after something wasn’t working, one side of my dv6 was dead, no power at all. And also my flipsky Antispark was no longer functional, staying on.
So long story short, I don’t see any obvious bad components, here’s my short circuits on the dv6
These pins are all shorted together on the comm port
And these two pins on the voltage regulator
Could anyone point me in the direction of where to check shorts? I assume lifting the voltage regulator would allow me to check and make sure that isn’t the culprit and if I still have a short on the circuit board then I need to go further, if it’s not a fried voltage regulator then is the problem a shorted stm32 chip or does that go toward the drv next?
