So I've been working on building the Cmoy here:
However it is not going so great...
When I got everything wired up and plugged in the DC powers the wires went up in flames
I think there was problem a short or something and none of the other parts seemed affected so I've been trying to rebuild it.
I resoldered in the DC socket after replacing those wires (those were the ones that were set on fire), cleaned up some joints, and cleaned the whole board with isopropyl alcohol
The only thing is I'm not sure what caused the fire so I'm hesitant to plug it in again before getting the all clear from more experienced builders (you guys)
Here are some pics:
Is there anything that looks super wrong?
The joints that are fused together looked like they were fused together in the instructions and seemed to be linked on the circuit board but I may be wrong.
I also don't have the LEDs in yet because I'm not sure what polarity they should be oriented in. Could somebody tell me what order it should be from the orientation of the first pic from left to right? (eg: pos->neg->pos->neg)
Also, when I rewired the DC socket I made the longer lead the positive wire. I'm not sure if that matters since I couldn't find anything on it online.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!
