Barrel Connector on BBBWL not soldered on 5v Pin

I just tried to power my BBBWL through the barrel connector and wasn’t able to get it to power, when I looked at the bottom of the board, the connector isn’t soldered to the pad. When I short the pad to the pin, it boots up and starts drawing power. Is this expected, did I get a weird board.

Thanks,

Ah! Now it makes sense why the eeprom never got programmed!!!

I bet your board was in the wrong pile at the factory...

Regards,

Is this a case I should RMA it? Or should I just solder it down?

Thanks,

Gregg

Thats a case where you make the call.
