Raspberry Pi Zero WH Issue

by nishabe on Sun Jun 13, 2021 2:04 am

Hello,
Recently I bought a Raspberry Pi Zero WH (Order#2565044-1683822409) for a project.
I started working on the project today and found out that, immediately after powering it on the chip heats up.
Please note, nothing else is connected to the board other than the power supply.
It happens within 5 seconds of power on and too hot to touch.

Could you please advise on the next steps?

Do you know what is heating up and do you see any shorts in the components? Can you post a picture of the pi with the heat generating part visible (not powered obviously)?

Thanks.
Attached is the image where the heat is generated.
I do not see any visible issues on the board.
