Oh NO!!!! 24v 5.5mm plugged in to up squared

EricEric New Member Posts: 16

I was re-organizing a desk and a 24v 5.5 power plug was accidentally plugged into the up : (

It was like this for maybe 20 seconds unit it was noticed and then unplugged....

I plugged the correct 5v plug in and the blue light comes on, but the up is otherwise unresponsive (no boot/startup).

I'm hoping there is there some form of overvoltage protection and/or component on the board that might have sacrificed itself to save the guts...

Can someone from Up/Aaeon provide some insight as to whether the unit is cooked?

I have access to proper smt rework equipment and can replace specific components.

    I hope you have some good luck!

    I did something similar with my first UP board (not UP2), and plugged in 12V. I ended up replacing the board.

    I will keep my fingers crossed for you.

    Bump in the hopes there will be some answer!
    Plugged 12V into the board, now got the same symptons as described above.
    I read somewhere else there's supposed to be a fused overvoltage-protection on the boards, but am not sure if they are only there to protect the periphery or the board itself or where these components would be located.

    Since there has been no official response to this or similar threads so far, I would not count on getting official help here.
    If you have (access to) the equipment that is required to fix this, I would suggest just trying to fix it yourself. If you have the equipment you should also have the knowledge (otherwise, why would you need the equipment?) ;)

    Hi does anyone know what is the maximum allowable continuous voltage input?

    hi did you finally find a solution to this problem? I just made the same stupid error.

    Hi there, I have done the same stupid error with a 12V power supply. I had burned plastic smells. I suppose that the power stage might be fried. But mayber there might be a chance to replace it?
