Electrical failure caused issues on heater 2 channel



  • Hello.

    I am using the Duet 2 Wifi with 2 DyzeEND-X and DyzeExtruders which are working just fine. I needed to get 12v from the board, so I connected a LM2596 based step down buck converter to get 12V. However, while I was tuning the potentiometer to get the desired 12 volts, something shorted (maybe?).

    There were some sounds that sounded like shorts, but no sparks or anything similar. I instantly turned everything off, and did a visual inspection. Nothing looked burnt at all, nothing was abnormally hot. Disconnected the buck converter, turned everything back on and everything was working perfectly from the dashboard, except for the heater 2 temperature readings. It is stuck reading about 1100-1400°C while heater 1 reads about 25°C, ambient temperature. I disconnected the thermistor and switched ports, and yet again it was heater 2 reading 1400°C. The thermistors themselves are not the issue, I think, so I believe something did burn.

    I am not sure tho, how does everything else work except the temperature readings from heater 2? I would've thought that many more things would be destroyed before it got to the thermistor channel.

    This is the config.g:

    And here are the best pictures I could the of the board.

    There's a bit of gunk from adhesive / hand grease on the bottom side, that's not burn marks or anything like that.

    Any ideas? Thank you
