Hello, I’ve bought my second ESP8266 because I had a problem with the first and I still have the same problem with the second.
I have tested on three differents computer and it is the same problem:
When I plug my FTD232 USB/serial converter with a switch to have 3.3V, it is ok.
BUT, as soon I plug the CH_PD pin of the ESP8266 on VCC(3.3V) or on a 10k pull-up or a 4.7k, there is like there is a short-circuit on the USB port; all the leds are ligthing less and the ESP8266 module does not work/start.
I have seeking this issue on internet but it seems that I am the only one in the world trying using an ESP8266 who have this problem.
I am very desperate and would have some helps to resolve it.
