Hi everyone, I’ve recently fried the BQ25895MRTWR on my RVL-PMS v1, I’ve bought a new one from AliExpress.
I was wondering if it just need to be replaced and soldered in place, or I need to upload something in order to get it fixed?
Hi, I’ve followed your advice and bought a spare of the BQ (link).
I think that’s the same part…
1) Could the pinout be different?
2) It’s just a replacement or do I need some programming step in order to get everything working?
Hi, I’ve recently fried my RVL-PMS by inserting the cell backwards :facepalm:
I was wondering, since the component visibly fried is the U7, can I still use the 1.8V converter instead of the LDO?
I’ve found on the forum were is the 1.8V converter, but I’m not into PCBs, so I don’t get were and...
Unfortunately that‘s not the datasheet for the LDO the Wii uses.
I took a look at the resistor values in Shank's Wii Super Thread's resistor section, and I saw like R1 = 1.125kOhm, but where can I find a diagram to see where this R1 is measured?
Hi everyone, I’ve recently fried my PMSv1, so I ordered a PMS-lite, but I noticed the LDO is now required.
I was very lucky to find my LDO with other trash components, it’s not in perfect condition so I would like to test it somehow.
Do you know how to test it with a multimeter?
Hi, I’m building my first Wii and I thought that if the CR2032 (to power on the MX chip), runs out of battery, I have to open the case to replace the old CR2032 with a new one…
To avoid those annoying operations I thought to use directly the 18650 cells (considering the negligible amount of...
Thank you cheese, I’ll remove the wires under the CPU and also the wi-fi, because I tested with my other wii that even with no-wifi patches the wii still boot.
The ground wire is the black one on the 3.3V, in couple with the red one.
Good news, today I tested again my trimmed wii, but accidentally switched the negative and positive wires of the multimeter, and I saw a different read around 2kOhms...
So I thought (maybe I’m wrong) that if there really was a short on 3.3V it should always be the same annoying 800-900Ohms of...
I’ll take a look for a new multimeter, maybe on Amazon, in the mean time I took a 1kOhms resistance from a junky pcb, and verified on digikey resistance calculator then I tested it and this is the result:
This is my fist project, the DWii, it will have:
-7” TFT display (wired with VGA)
-USB-C PD PCB
-2x LRA vibration motors 2V
-4x INR18650-35E 3500mAh 10A 1-35W
I had troubles with my first trim, so I asked for help in the...
Hi everyone, I’m testing the trim of my Wii and it won’t boot, I double checked almost everything.
The CPU and the GPU heat up when I turn the system on, also the fan starts spinning, so I guess my USB-C and my PMS are fine, I also see the files in the USB drive when I plug it in my laptop.
