Tom Posted October 17, 2015 Share Posted October 17, 2015 I'm stupid. I was disassembling the case for my generic 350w EUC today and the ridiculous amount of hot glue covering the wires caused a capacitor on the board to bend over as I was pulling the wires through the casing.When I turned it on a tiny amount of smoke started coming from the board so I disconnected power immediately and now nothing happens when I power on.So my questions are, is my battery fried? Can the board be fixed? I'm a competent solderer and have some understanding of electronics, so I could replace the capacitors if required?The bent capacitor(I've assumed this was the cause of the problem, I pushed it back down but obviously that didn't do anything to help): Overall board view (circled in red is the area the smoke was coming from): Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
