Printrboard trace burn

Post by argus0209 » Wed Sep 04, 2013 5:36 am

I have burned up two geeeetech printrboards and can't seem to figure out why. The motors still run fine one both card but no heat from the hot end.

A close look shows a burnt trace going from the power over to the hotend connector.

I'm running a 203watt Xbox power supply
12.23v at 16amps

Anyone have any idea why it's doing this?

Anyway I can rig this so it will work?

I can provide picture or video if that helps

Is it possible that you can update the wiki page and or the product page about this power limitation?

Okay I think I have ruled out the power supply as being the problem.
I am working on trouble shooting this more but I'm wondering if anyone has had any problems like this?

Is there a way I can make a jumper to jump around the burnt trace?

I just sent an email.

I am pretty good with a soldering iron so that would work for me. :)

Here's a video of the cards.

I did the contact form like two days ago and just got a message to post a topic on the geeetech forum.

The trace that is burnt out runs under a capacitor. I'm wondering if its connected to the capacitor?
