Urgent: Fried Edison??

I just accidentally put a 7.2v 860mAh LiPo battery in the J2 connector. The led on the board flashed briefly and then nothing. Since then whenever I connect the arduino board to my pc using usb the led flashes briefly and then again nothing. Did I fried my board or is there still hope?

Hi jrsall92,

I'm sorry to hear that you have problems with this. I would like to know more about the behavior of the board and what you have tried.

1. Is the module/board getting hot?

2. Are you able to access the Terminal Console?

3. Have you tried to power the board with a power supply instead of using the USB port?

4. Did you try to re-flash the board?

If you don't see improvements after this, I suggest you to contact the place where you bought the board because they usually offers a Return & Replacement Policy, when did you purchase it?

Regards,

Charlie

Hello CMata_Intel,

Thank you for your reply. Here are the answers to your questions:

1. Yes, when on power it gets hot after a while.

2. When I try to use the terminal over serial it starts but doesn't display anything (using ubuntu and screen). When I disconnect any usb, the serial connection fails and the screen program terminates.

3. I tried to power it from a arduino shield that worked before but without any luck.

4. No I didn't thought or tried to re-flash.

I'll try the last step and I'll let you know.

I bought the board in November 2015, it's the arduino breakboard kit.

Thanks,

John

Hi jrsall92

I'm sorry to hear that it didn't work, but I would like to know what did you get on console after running the flashall script?

Are you able to see the tty ports on /dev in Ubuntu?

Also, where did you buy the board? I suggest you to look into the Return & Replacement Policy of the store in order to check if your purchase is still covered by their warranty policy.

Regards,

Charlie

Hi jrsall92,

I would like to know if you have asked for a replacement in the store where you bought the board, also could you post the output you get when you run the flashall script?

Regards,

Charlie
