After doing a NeoPixel install I wanted to do a “simple” tricree install. I have an illuminated power switch (red), put two 56R in series, but only 1/4W. Connected the TriCree to LED1/2/3 and the switch to LED 6 (and battery positive). Started the board without connecting the switches and everything seemed fine. Installed the chassis, soldered the buttons, started it, and the board started smoking and failed. I cut the switch LED assuming that the resistors were too small, but still smoked. Once I could inspect it further, I found one of the MOSFET blown out. I’m assuming that somehow the solder on LED2 migrated to the MOSFET and short circuit it.
I don’t know if those MOSFET are available. My question is really if I can take that MOSFET out, clear the solder and move the LEDs to 4/5 and still use the board. And if I should check for any other short. Thanks
