  • hi,
    im using duet 3 main board (6hc) + duet 3 expansion board for a while,
    the setup is a Cartesian printer with multiple tools.
    firmware version: RC-12 _3.1.1.1
    web cotrol: version 3.1.1

    here is my config file:

    i was printing in usually way it work just fine.
    than, i heard a bang sound and when i went to check i discovered that my expansion board has black mark on its CPU chip.
    i wasnt operating it at the moment but later when i check it it didnt was functional, the fuse light gone only the blue one was on.
    i dont know what was the cause the bang i had to replace the board after.
    anyone experienced the same?

    thank you beforehaed.

    Hi @moo16 It sounds like there was a short between your VIN power and another signal on the expansion board. Please carefully check your wiring ans that sort of short may only occur when it is bent in a specific way.

  • thank you
    everything look good.
    i replaced the board with new one and works good.

  • @moo16 said in duet 3 expansion 3HC burnout-:

    placed the board with new one and works good.


    should i send the board back to the supplier?

    Where and when was it purchased? Can you post photo of the damage?
