Geeetech Prusa I3 pro B PSU unit exploded when pluggin it

Post by LuluJmz » Fri Mar 17, 2017 7:51 pm

I recently bought the Geeetech Prusa i3 pro B, built it following the video instructions on youtube and the user manual for the electrical part. When I plugged it in the PSU exploded, there were no fire, just lots of smoke and a strange liquid. I would like to know if it is safe to plug it again or not, if it is going to work properly afterwards, etc. I would also would like to know what should I do now.

DO NOT PLUG IT BACK IN!

You should take pictures of the board, the wiring and the psu wiring.

Something is in the wrong place or there was a short from the factory!

You will need a new pus at the very least and new contol board at the worst.

Thanks for your answer, but I already fixed it buying a new PSU. Thanks again :)
