I designed and manufactured a PCB for a talking camera that I’m working on. The problem is, it was dead on arrival. It looks like something’s wrong with the power system. I stuck closely to a reference design, and I’m not sure where the issue is.
I really need a second pair of eyes on this, is anyone available for a few hours to go over a PCB with me? I’m happy to pay a fair contracting rate for what it’s worth.

Depending on how complex it is, I might be able to help. Can you send me the schematics and pcb drawings? At the very least I’ll be able to tell you if I’m out of my depth or not :stuck_out_tongue:

If you used eagle, two suggested checks: 1. look at the board design, turn off all layers except unrouted. If there are any yellow lines showing, that is a missing track that needs wiring and 2. if you used ground planes i.e. polygons and rastnest command, check that they are indeed connected to ground.
