[beagleboard] BeagleBone doesn't boot anymore, probably burned: can someone confirm this or help me revive it?

There is no fuse to protect the board from applying 5V direct to the processor that can only handle 3.3V. Best bet would be to request and RMA.

Thank you…

If you applied 5V to the pins on the expansion header, from an Arduino, then you will need to remove the processor and put a new one on. If you are unable to do this yourself, then you should request an RMA and get it fixed.

thanks alot. i was driving bldc motor using l6235. I made sure that feedback pulses do not exceed 3.3v by placing a zenor. After sometime my beaglebone just stopped responding i.e 1 led flashes and then stops.So do u think only solution will be to replace processor, no other shortway? also i m from Pakistan and got beaglebone through a dealer sometime back in November 2012, do u think my RMA will be valid?

I know your RMA will be valid. Can I assume that the dealer was not an authorized distributor?

Gerald

yes they may not be authorized. I think they bought it from digikey in USA through local office and then go it shipped here. But not so sure

OK. Put the RMA request in and reference me.

Gerald

i did put RMA almost an hour ago. But dont know how to refer it to you.

I am Gerald. Just say you talked to me!

Gerald

Thanks. RMA approved, will get it shipped in few days. May i know what problem could have caused this failure?

I cannot say. We do not know what your failure is until we look at the board.
