Blew my board and my R Pi with Prusa connect - lesson learned only 5 pins...

I ran into issues with my prusa connect Pi Zero W -  lost WLAN0 

Anyway I had another one but it had full headers - so I used some header extensions and plugged it into the Einsy and powered it up. Yes I plugged all of the pins in - not jut the 5 you are supposed to have - no it wasn't touching the einsy I had header extensions on.

Boom - magic smoke released....

The Pi was dead - the Einsy seemed fine 🙂 - until I tried to print - no hot end 🙁

 

Oh and everything was working Great! I just had some time and decided to upgrade the firmware on my Pi 0 W - lesson learned if it ain't broke don't fix it...

So now the question - can I just replace my Einsy? or do I need to preserve my serial number?

OK was just the 5A fuse on the hot end - no need for a new board....
