I received my brand new V3 kit a few days ago, built it up, put a SDcard with the 2019-06-26-zynthianos-stretch-lite-1.0.0-RC3 image in, and it looked like everything worked, except the encoders.
I left it on while I had a quick sandwich, but when I came back 30 minutes later the display was off and there appeared to be no life to it. I opened the case up, couldn’t see an obvious problem, connected to the webconf tool and could change to the V3 kit, but still no sign of any display output.
I pressed around the display board for any hot components or dry joints and found that when my fingers passed over the R1 pads I could see some display output, and on close inspection could see the bare SMT pads there, with solder blobs where R1 would have been connected, but no resistor!
I’ve had a careful look inside the case but can’t find any trace, and the odd thing is it was all built, assembled and the case screwed up before I powered it up, so it could not have been something coming into mechanical contact with R1 after it started working initially.
I can probably mend this at work on Monday and put another resistor on, but I thought you might like to know what happened? I’ve got no idea why R1 came off or where it is now. There was no smell of fried components, but I’m assuming it must have been there to begin with as how would it have worked to begin with?
