Hi, i needed drawdio to prototype some ideas in a design project, in product design that is, i didn't know it would come in non assembled form, so i had to buy soldering iron just to join it, last time i solder something was around 17 years ago so i am not sure if i killed it in the progress or not but it doesnt work.
the only think i can tell is that a) i checked tens of times - all components are positioned correctly and are in their places. b) speaker seems to work since if i directly connect it to the battery it makes small cracking noises. if i move the contacts. c) with a fresh battery there is still no sound or even crackings from drawcord but the board under chip (555 timer chip) gets quite hot.
any suggestions? i needed it fast and ordered with delivery costing more than the kit itself ((( I am in MIlan, Italy.
