  • At first I had no problem prototyping with this board. However, once I soldered everything up, I started running into a strange problem: the board appears to shut down (though the power light is still on) if I turn my 10k volume pot up at all. I can only use the bottom 10% or so of the range before the sound cuts off. I’m assuming this is a thermal shutdown issue, because I can wait 30 seconds, turn down the pot a bit, and the sound will play again (though the chip is always cool to the touch). I’m powering the setup directly from a regulated 5V source and receiving an audio signal via TRRS pigtail from my laptop. Any thoughts about what I’m doing wrong?

No public wish lists :(
