Openspot broken

Post by PH0DV » Wed May 08, 2019 4:51 pm

Hello,

A colleague ham radio amateur haves an issue with his openSPOT v1. After used in the car the openSPOT gets very hot and is not working anymore. Also the big ic is getting very hot. so now and then one of the leds is blinking.

He will send the item to me. Is this an known issue, any suggestions are welcome?

Kind regards,

Dick

Probably the main MCU got overvoltage through the car USB power supply. We can do repairs if you contact us at info@sharkrf.com, describe the issue and send us the device UID.
