question about testing power supply

by lonewolf on Wed Jun 29, 2005 8:37 pm

Can the testing in the 'Power Supply' section be done once the entire unit is built???

thanks

you really want to test the power supply once youve built it
if it isnt working and you have the wrong voltages coming out
of the power supply it can ruin components down the line

i tested it when it was first built and everything was good. built the thing, it worked for about 5 hours of constant play and than crapped out, now im going back to try to figure out what may be wrong and I am not getting the right voltages when testing it.......

the voltages should all be fairly similar as when
the power supply was first built

what is the failure mode

perhaps the microcontroller is one of the ones with
the bad firmware
