Fingbox micro usb to pcb fault
had fingbox a long time and until recently fingbox has run without a fault, then it kept dropping out of the network apparently randomly losing power. I tried a recovery ‘that hard I broke the very flimsy button’.
the fault was quickly discovered after opening the unit as the micro usb was only surface mounted and had come away from the pcb, unlike the adjacent usb & Ethernet which are soldered with pins through the board and secure.
I will probably have a go at soldering the micro usb back on myself and see if I can find a suitable alternative for the recovery button if needed.
If I am unable to repair it, Has this problem of only surface mounting the micro usb been rectified on more current versions otherwise I don’t think I will buy a replacement
