PiHub Serious Fault


#1

Hi,

I plugged in my PiHub today, linking it to 3 Nikon cameras. After I plugged in the power supply it started smoking. What could have caused this? The hub is several years old, however, I do not trust the Hub to use it again. Has this ever happened before? What could cause it to draw too much current?

Regards,

Richard

Had you been using it continuously, or dug it out of a box to set up? It would be hard to pin down what specifically went wrong. it may not necessarily be overcurrent. Are you sure it was the right/orginal power supply?

PiHub came and went before my time, pretty much, and this is the first I’ve heard of one smoking.
