Today I tried to hook up an ir reciever to the arduino, I was connecting it while the ground and 5v pins shorted on the other side I got this burning smell and then I quickly pull out the power adaptor as I knew something was wrong(I know it is my fault that I did not disconnect it first) but know the situation is as follows
- When connected via USB the arduino ON, TX and RX pins are stable but the pc does not detect it.
- When connected via power adaptor ON , TX and RX lights are stable and then the pin 13 light comes on after a few seconds and the arduino gets really hot.
- Physically nothing looks damaged.
Please help me rectify this problem or will I have to buy a new arduino.
Thanks in advance
