This is my first project here so please bear with me.
It seems that I somehow fried one of my pro minis RAW input. I can still power it on via the 5V VCC input and it’ll run basic code correctly. However when I power it through the RAW input nothing happens. Nothing seems physically damaged on the board hence my reluctance to replace the voltage regulator before what’s actually broken. Would you guys know a way I could repair this board or am I confined to use it only through the vcc pin at 5V?
Here’s the project I’m attempting to build. So far I was able to put it all together on a breadboard (minus the resistor). When I tried to make it more permanent though the board seemed to have shorted out. I have other boards available to replace it but I’d like to prevent such thing from happening again. It was powered through 12V 5A.
I’ll take any advice you guys have!
