Dlp8 failure


Recommended Posts

I installed a fuel pressure sensor today, sent the ground wire into the ground on the DLP, sent the signal wire into a spare input on the DLP and put the 5 volt wire into the 5 volt in the DLP.

Smoke came out and the DLP stopped working. I got a message saying the DLP can't communicate. Upon inspection the wires connecting the USB plug to the DLP had frayed, most likely shorted out and this was the cause of the failure.

I thought I'd post about it anyway in case I wired the sensor into the DLP incorrectly. I've ordered 2 more DLP8s and I'd rather not blow another one up.

Kind of related, my new units arrived today and I got one wired up. You can't use the 5V supply on the DLP for a sensor because as soon as the wire is connected, the Tactrix gets disconnected. Disappointing, but I have a voltage regulator on the way so I can switch 12V to 5V, so hopefully that will have this sorted once and for all.
