SRF05 Wont work with Picaxe 28x1!!
« on: September 16, 2008, 02:43:30 PM »
I soldered everything up correctly as supposed to, and when I plug in the power to the picaxe, after 7-10 seconds, the SRF05 board and everything gets extremely hot... Did it burn out? How can I see if the SRF05 still works?

Sounds like you shorted something or applied a really high voltage. Check the wiring really carefully, then power it up (starting from a low voltage) and check everything with your multimeter.

If it got really hot, its probably fried though . . . see any visual damage?
