Hi! I am sorry to hear that! We tested the PowerBlock with quite a few extension boards and that should not happen at all.
Please contact me via email or webform (https://www.petrockblock.com/contact/) so that we can arrange a replacement.
Hello, I was looking into the firmware flashing options too for my Controlblock. Have anyone tried to flash with Arduino Uno as ISP or with the Arduino Nano Every?
As I have both it would be the fastest but I would love some help to do it right...
For me it is the first time to hear of such a behaviour. Does the PowerBlock work fine afterwards or has it become just unreliable at all?
Maybe there was some sort of voltage transient that caused the malfunction of the PowerBlock IC.
Hello, we recently identified a bug in the ControlBlock driver. I am very sorry for that!
Your observations see to match the symptoms caused by that. We released an update yesterday and that should also fix your problems.
