I have a connex 200xm, netCF, and stuart boards.
Thinking that perhaps adjacent components on the boards touched, I cut
out some strips from the bags the boards came in and placed them between
I then reconnected just the connex+netCF again, now it's dead, won't
boot. Retested connex+stuart, still dead.
Yeah, you could say your theory about adjacent components touching is a
good one... Those bags are conductive, to dissipate static
electricity in transit and storage.
To make a long story short, you basically did the equivalent of shoving
a piece of aluminum foil between the boards and turned on the
power. Not a healthy thing to do to electronics.
Good thing these boards are inexpensive, eh? ;-)
