A friend on mine, whose child has been using makerduino for a while, accidentally has dropped it and now it won’t turn on (by this I mean there is no light coming from the screen, not even backlight).
I took the makerbuino in hope to fix it, pic below. The speaker is lost in process, unfortunately.
When I connect the charger, there is a blue light next to bat+ at that blue “power module”, but switching the switch 1 does nothing. I also tried to hold the button C before switching, nothing happens.
Looking at the back of the plate, 3rd solderjoint from the right looks odd to me. There is also some wierd yellow colour at the battery joints (next to speaker at the back panel).
I must admit that I have not checked the manual, so I’m curious, can makerbuino work plugged to power when the battery is not connected?
Thank you for your time and consideration,
Kind regards from Osijek
