I got the zxmore board from Pokémon and I must say that the board and contents are second to none.
My son has built the board and when he told me he couldn't get it to work I had a look.
He has a trace missing where the 47pf cap is on pin 4of the clock and the via. He has also lost the pad at is it c34 ?
So the computer is just a black screen the led is not working properly and I am at a loss.
I wonder if I send the board back to Pokémon would be sort it out for my lad as this was his birthday present and is heart broken
And I would pay him for the inconvienience. He has really tried with this build
I've posted in Pokemons Q&A topic here viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1833&p=27113&hilit=zxmore#p27113
Hopefully its an easy fix.
I am not sure if it is the same problem with rune as a black or white screen can have dozens of reasons at the end. Lost pads doesn't sound that good. There a few kits already completed by customers without problem and myself did a series of 5 boards with no problem. Just the last one where I accidently used a 74HTC166 instead of HCT165 took me a few hours to find the mess. All others did run from the first try. So it is not a general problem.
