USB-BUB II doesn't work

Post by foobar64 » Sat Dec 24, 2011 1:05 pm

I've received my BBB+USB-BUB II kit today. I soldered the FTDI output header, plugged in the USB cable - and nothing. The cable is okay, I checked it. Also, the fuse is VERY HOT. What can I possibly have done wrong?

If the fuse is hot - you have a short somewhere. You may have soldered on the header clips - then picked opposite options as the solder jumpers?
Look at the board carefully for solder shorts.

If it's not anything obvious you can send the board back for replacement. The address is on the website. Mark the package "repair / replace" please.
