Dead KiwiSDR troubleshooting [fixed with Beagle replacement]
One of my Kiwis is completely dead, with no lights coming on regardless of what power supply I try. I separated the boards and tried powering the BBG via a 5V microUSB connector from a phone charger. Absolutely nothing, no lights etc. So I assume the next logical step would be to buy a new BBG board, and then flash it with the correct firmware? I misplaced the original microSD card for that, I assume I can download it somewhere?
I also connected the power supply to the KiwiSDR board by itself...there are no lights but I don't think that board has any either. I have read about the common mode choke possibly getting fried, there is a rectangular component labeled 501Y which I assume is it, but it didn't get warm when attached to the power supply. I assume I should try measuring the voltage at the pins on the other side of the board.
