  • test…

  • You can borrow mine for short periods of time. :)

  • We test every single board, but unfortunately in this case, our test bed is not capable of catching this particular error. All the affected boards were pulled from stock once this issue came to light and that’s why they are currently on backorder. If you have one of the affected boards, please email us at techsupport@sparkfun.com and we will take care of you. All new stock will have this problem corrected.

  • We discovered an error in the PCB on these that is causing the issue you’re describing. The ground on the input jack is not connected to the rest of the board. If you connect the pin on the jack closest to “UT” in the word “<– Input” to either “Audio In, G” or the same pin on the output jack this will correct the problem. A revision is in the works to permanently fix this. If you have any questions, email us at techsupport@sparkfun.com.

  • I think it was an op-amp. Wish I had saved my old 150 in 1 kit!

  • Hello. I just had a look at one. Not without a lot of difficulty. The metal housing is crimped around the gray plastic. If you were able to get it open without destroying the switch, you’d likely need to glue it back together.

  • and off. The LED strips require a lot of power (especially the 5M strips) but it worked good with my variable power supply set s 12V/1A. The LED s

    These are 12 volt strips.

  • Without knowing the exact part number used for the LED’s, it’s hard to say. (SparkFun does not manufacture this kit.) My guess is they are using a larger than needed resistor to keep the total current down in the PIC and/or to preserve battery life. The LED’s are bright enough even at this low current.

  • Sure is!

  • Made from the wool of electric sheep? ;-)
