Did anyone ever diagnose the cause of the "All 8's" problem? I finally built the kit I ordered in 2009 (the shame) and am encountering the same issue.

Thanks!

@diskzero - post photos of the front & back of the boards and we'll check over your assembly.

Sorry to bump an old thread, but it looks like someone else is having this problem. Did anyone ever discover a solution?

Just some wild guesses: Was it an issue with Q3? The microcontroller?

You might want to look at the thread I posted right after yours. Someone suggested I check the Q3 (MOSFET) and that seems to be the culprit at least for my all 8's issue.
