I think I broke it

Not sure what I did, but my pixelblaze won’t turn on anymore and gets so hot I can’t even touch it. Not sure what happened. One minute it’s running like a top, and the next it’s broken down on the side of the road.

ESD zap maybe? Over voltage? Which part is hot?

I’ll double check when I get home. Pretty sure near the button.

Take pictures too, and show how you was trying to power the board, and what else was plugged in!

Will do! I lights powered with a couple 5v mean well power supplies and powered the pixelblaze by usb.

Did you make sure the LED power supplies and PB USB have a common ground? If not … that could explain the heat!
