ok, I noticed just before when testing, that in the 2 minutes it does work, before components gets too hot, there is no sound. And now I remember just before the OSSC broke down there was some ‘crackling’ in the speakers that I never noticed before.
I have nothing to lose with this board really as warranty is gone and sending for repairs is about the same expense as getting new one.
I don’t really have the skills, those pins looks awfully small for the tools I have. What would be expected to happen if I cut pin 8?
