Power switch won't turn circuit sword on

Post by shakepod » Fri Nov 05, 2021 8:17 am

Hey,

I recently build my circuit sword and short before assabmling everything the powerswitch suddenly stopped working.
Mode button works, back buttons (L and R) also work.
I can turn on the sword with the button on the pcb but not with the switch.

greetings shake

Interestingly, I’ve just run into this problem as well. I’ve built a number of these boards before and I have three right now. I’ve tested two different boards on the bench and both are having this problem.

Interesting. Especially because mine stopped literally overnight.

Any conclusions already? I might change the ribbon cable.
Pretty clueless right now.

Following up on this, I’ve tested all four (turns out I bought four, not three) Circuit Shields (v1.3D 20190205) and none of them will power on with the switch through the accessory board. The accessory board is V1.1C.

When I press the power button on the main board I see the 5v PWR status light on the accessory board turn on, so power is at least making it back up to the accessory board.

I sent a couple emails off to Kite, but no word yet. I’m not exactly sure where to begin diagnostic tracing, but this is the first time I’ve ever run into a problem with one of these boards.
