Is a fried board valid for replacement?
Posted 28 July 2012 - 07:26 AM
5 months ago I was able to talk with ED, about a possible battery problem that community thought. He told me he'll send a battery and recovery SD instead. 2 days ago I finally got the battery and the recovery SD a few days ago. Although part of me know it wont work. But I still hoped, even though the first day of trying to fix it didnt help using the kit. I attempted to make it work till now. I dont wanna give up, the Pandora was my favorite handheld. Definitely the homebrew/geek/hacker enthaustists' dream console. Any other console after DS and PSP never had such feel like this. Even Android and iOS devices never got the charms right.
This is why I felt very sad after hours of trying to fix it with the repair SD and battery ED sent me. The Pandora suddenly smelled very burnt. I'm pretty sure its fried now. Its truly heart breaking to me. But I'll use my motivation to earn the money to send my Pandora back. But please, I wanna know if my Pandora is valid for replacement I barely used for a month in total..
And if so would I receive a new 512mb Pandora unit? Cause it seems like the CC produced Pandora first batches I received seems very fragile. And the games im developing for the pandora has been in hiatus for years now.. I wanna announce them already.

They had a lot non-working ones, but usually, the ones that worked didn't fail.
However, it sounds like you had a broken one from the very beginning, so yes, this is something I will replace.
I still got some 256MB PCBs here, which I usually use for repair replacements, but I'm sure we can find a deal to get you a good update possibility.

The 256MB PCB replacement would be out of warranty. These PCBs have been tested, so they should work.
In case it breaks again, I'll give you a 512MB one replacement for free any pay for the shipping costs.
Be sure to include a note telling me what's wrong and where to send it back to.

Big thanks ED. That really made me happy.
Edit: Off-topic: Its been awhile since I browsed the forums. I guess P2 is a fact now. Thats awesome, back then it was just mere fanboy dreams. I guess thats more products to buy.

But I think you have all the information you need to find my pandora again.
I would be perfectly happy to open my mailbox @home and find my not so shiny old black pandora with a new LCD-Cabel and a new D-Pad in it
