Re: POE Junper

Thanks for the replies. Gordon, I was thinking along the same lines. I could solder 2 wires on the underside, and route them thru the mounting hole to topside. My only issue, is do I use the original fan wiring, or more likely solder 2 new wires with suitable connectors enabling easy removal if nece...

POE Junper

I've just purchased a GeeekPi acrylic case for my Pi4B, which comes complete with a fan requiring a power supply and ground connection. Can be 3v3 or 5, depending on how fast you want to power the fan. I don't want to use the normal GPIO pins as I need to install a HAT for my project. My question is...

Re: Portable screens that dont cost an arm and a leg

Having thought about this, and not being technical at all, I was wondering is there any way to hookup to a digital photo frame. Good size and usually good quality. Any thoughts.

Re: Anyone who ordered from RS get their camera yet?

Ordered mine from RS Tuesday @ 8.30 and a package arrived today ....... a model A Pi.
Gutted, to say the least.
Anyone else had this problem?

Re: Pi reboots when 3.3v jumper is placed?

I too suffered the 3v3 jumper reboot, and really thought I hade messed the board up, as I did mess the c17 capacitor pad up, but seems I got away with that one. However, I digress. I've fainally got my board working and am a very happy bunny. I removed all the chips, and connected the Pi and placed ...

Re: C17 pad destroyed

Hi pmj, My commiserations. Short answer is no. When I finished my board, I checked all OK, and then applied jumper 7 for power. Somewhere there is a short as nothing worked, and the regulator was glowing (not really), but extremely hot. I was advised to solder capacitor between pins 21 & 22, which I...

Re: Gertboard Assembly Thread

I wish I knew, but having retested the 3 points, they all read o, so, if that's the case, then I have *really* screwed up.
One other point, the voltage regulator, bottom right gets incredibly hot, is that correct.

Re: Gertboard Assembly Thread

Hi Gert, Many thanks for your reply. I removed all the chips, and then checked resistence on the board. All 3 points measured between 0 & 2. I then reinserted the chips, double checking the orientation, but alas, with the same result. I will now see if I can remove and reinsert the chips one by one ...

Re: Gertboard Assembly Thread

Oh dear, I seem to have done something stupid. I tested the voltage at 3v3 successfully, fitted the jumper across j7, and it kills my Pi. Leave the jumper off and all works ok, Pi boos and loads. Fit the jumper and the Pi starts to boot, but dies when the power shuts off. Anyone have any ideas as to...

C17 pad destroyed

Help, clumsy soldering led to the destruction of the lower pad when soldering C17. Please advise on how to go about rectifying my error. I have sourced new capacitors, but suspect that I will need 'through hole' ones, not smd. The schematics show that c17 is connected to ground, but which pad connec...
