Powersupply outputting 5v

by caffeinatedsoap on Wed Mar 25, 2009 12:25 pm

If anyone else has run into this issue maybe you can help me out.

When following the instructions for the powersupply stage the instructions say measure here for 5v out. I am getting 12v out on that spot using a 4v input to the board.

Where I am suppose to measure for 3.3v it is coming out perfect though.

Anyone else had the same issue?

Edit: Fixed didn't read the errant and it said to use a 39k resistor instead of the instructions saying to use a 120k resistor.

Yes, R3 should be 37k, not 120k... apparently the part list is for RC1, the schematics of RC1a are correct though.

Edit : saw you edit :D Glad you found it; took me a while of forum browsing, lol.
