    Gday


    I bricked a F16v2r by giving it 12 volts with the power jumpers set for 5 volts. Here is the link for the diode that I used to fix it.

    After replacing the diode the controller had a power up issue where it would only boot properly 1 out of 10 times. Updating the firmware fixed that problem.


    Posting here just in case I'm not the only idiot on this earth....






    Also link for the fuse LEDs.

    I don't recall the F16v2 having power jumpers. The inputs work on anything between 5-24vdc.

    Oh they most certainly do!
    The first thing you read when you see the manual is ....

    WARNING!
    Please do not connect power to F16v2, until you have read the power section of this manual.
    And then it goes on to show all of the possible configurations.

    There is a jumper to select 5v in or 7-12v. The jumper selects the output of a voltage regulator or the 5v in direct.
    The second jumper selects whether the power is taken from the pixel power on the starboard side of the board, or the aux input connector.

    The jumpers are up near the lower corner of the subboard.
