So while I attempted to put attach endstops to my machine it seems I have fried something. As soon as I made a connection to the board with my endstops, while everything was on, things went bad. My computer shut off, black screen as if I pulled out the battery. A sizzly sound came from the board as well as a smell. I assume I must have done something wrong while wiring everything.
Everything ran smoothly until I tried to add endstops. Now nothing is working even after disconnecting the endstops, when I try to connect the power to the board and plug in the usb, my computer repeats its power off with a noise. Now I don’t want to fry my computer as well so I just ordered a new board kit from here.
Any ideas as to what I may have done wrong. I am almost certain that I connected the NC->S and C->GRD accordingly. Is there anything else I could have done wrong.
Just having the usb connected without the dc power to the ramps does not work for me. I get no response from the machine.
