  • Ahh… the elusive triple entendre.

  • I had one that was DOA. When I opened it, I noticed that one of the wires that connected the AC prongs to the PCB had broken off at the soldier joint. It’s a fairly small gauge stranded wire that’s used for the connection. After stripping it back and resoldering, it’s been working great ever since. While it might not be the best quality wall wart, fixing it should be a cake walk for the typical Sparkfun customer.
