[Ovmsdev] Dead OVMS

I am sorry you had this issue.

Fasttech only handle sales, and I handle all repairs from Hong Kong. Since we launched version 3 hardware, I’ve only had a handful of returns for repair. The majority of issues seem to be blown components (modem chips, power supply chips, etc), but soldering quality is an ongoing issue.

Can you send me some pictures of the faults on the board? Is it the main board, the modem, or both? I can arrange to ship a replacement out from HK.

In general, if anyone has hardware issues, please let me know.

Regards, Mark
