Looks like the fuse blew.  Those solder joints have way too much solder on them both on the negative of the battery as well as the output pads.

I'd say it experienced a hard short while in high watt mode.

Sorry for your loss.

Soldering these thick wires is not class 101 stuff and before you get the new board I would have a good practice soldering them to get nice shiny clean slim joints, lots of info on the web, but practice makes perfect.  We all have to start somewhere and top marks for going for it.

First off i want to say thank you all for the help. i got the new board in and running great finished it on saturday. Yesterday (Monday) it started to continue to fire after the button was pressed and it doesn't stop unless i press the up or down buttons. It first started to do it intermittently now its doing it everytime i press the fire button. I was extra careful this time on the install and it was working fine for two days until this started happening. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

Can you post a picture of how you have the board installed? Especially the connections for external buttons?

Thanks! We'll get to the bottom of it. It isn't likely to be software, because software doesn't change after a couple days.

That sure looks normal. It would be nice to see the board face on so we can see the mounting holes for the external switches. If those are being bridged by a piece of debris or are covered in e-liquid that could cause spurious firing. 

Also, what firmware revision are you running? Does going forwards or backwards with the firmware revision make the problem stop? (i.e. is it specific to a certain firmware or is it specific to this board?)

If you have a multimeter, what voltage do you get between the external fire button connection holes when the device is staying activated, but you are not pressing the button. 

Does it stop firing after the 20 second timeout? 

Is it just the fire button sticking, or have you seen the adjust buttons do the same? 

Thanks
John

I have the exact same 3D print from Shapeways. Couple of thing to look at.

  1. I had to file the 3d printed buttons on the sides and the holes of the case front slightly as I was finding that the down button for my was sticking when pressed.
  2. Try loosening the three screws that hold the board to the face slightly I also found over tightening them also caused sticky buttons.
Overall the 3d printed case design works but isn't the greatest but since this isn't going to be my final case I settle for I'm happy for now, and for me was always more of a short term until other cases become available or I design my own case.

Good luck hope it works out [thumb]

I am running the latest firmware 7/9 and it does it in the old firmware also the external switches are sitting at 11.2 volts at idle and it does last more the 20 seconds if i let it. i can get better pics when i get home from work of the external switches and it only does it with the fire button.

So with it open like shown in the pictures does it still lock up while firing by pushing the onboard fire button with your finger?
