[WTB] MintyPi V3 controller board only

Post by gambino37 » Mon Apr 08, 2019 7:13 am

I know this is a very long shot, but if anyone messed up a kit and has the controller PCB (That the pi solders to), Ill take it! Ill even pay shipping. Let me know fellow tinkerers. To be clear, I'm not looking for a full kit. Just the one board.

I am curious as to why only the button PCB?

I have built like eleven MintyPis so far, so I thought i was a badass going to the V3. Went to replace the mosfet.... looked for a chip with eight legs......just started trying to remove it without verifying it was the correct one......it wasnt. lol

So you fried the controller board? The mosfet that needs to be replaced is on the power board not the controller board.

I know. I didn't verify. Hence the mistake.

Can you post pics of both boards? I am still confused as to what is actually wrong.

I tried to remove the mosfet with Quick Chip on the controller board on accident. Too much heat and poking and prodding is what did it in. I have already discussed the problem at length with Helder.

Don't contact me about obtaining my board files (as you will not get them). Don't contact me about any of my boards if they are sold out, they will be restocked as soon as I can get them.


Don't support thieves like ckliang who copied my AIO to resell and is now cloning the mintyPi, support the original creators and not the thieves!
