Re: Additional part sourcing thread

Oops, I misread your post, sorry. I was interested in 1 or 2 speakers, but I could help selling off to fellow Canadians. However, I'm going in vacation next weekend for about 10 days so I can't help right away. When I get back I can definitely help out with the reselling if no one else pitches in.

Re: Additional part sourcing thread

Re: Troubleshooting USB sound card issue

When having issues with USB it's usually 2 things, one is the pad being grounded like you have and the other is the D- and D+ being swapped (shit it happened to me) but glad you got it going and stay away from that 60/40 solder. Do you recommend the lead-free one? 63/37 Percentage-wise that's not m...

Re: Troubleshooting USB sound card issue

Thanks. Yes, I noticed that too, I had to shorten both those wires to prevent shorts again. I'm assembling the covers now but having trouble with the button plate going down further. I can't close the hinge mechanism due to this. May have to with the wires taking up space and/or the plate itself ne...

Re: Troubleshooting USB sound card issue

Glad you figured it out. I would *really* recommend shortening how much wire is exposed. It will also make it easier if you turn the wires around so they are coming from the other direction. Thanks.

EDIT: Actually, now that I look at this picture, it looks like I have shorted the white wire with the hole on its right. Confirmed with multimeter.

My guess is that you fried your crystal or damaged some components on the board. If it was just the crystal you can get the for cheap of the internet. You send a picture or the card closeup :p
This is what I had before I attached it to the tin (see pic).

Troubleshooting USB sound card issue

So, I thought I was done to the point where I only needed to screw everything together. The screen and buttons were working.
