Power surge on Clip

Post by Regen7 » Tue May 04, 2021 8:08 pm

Hi,

I've recently had issues with my track ir pro clip. Everytime I plug it into a USB port it always comes up with 'USB Device has exceeded the power limits of its hub port'.

It causes the USB to switch off until I reconnect and reset it. I have suspected a short in the wires however have traced the red and black wires from the USB cable to the LEDs and there is no contact between them or broken wires.

The resistor also appears fine and am at a loss for what the issue is. I really don't want to but a new one because of how expensive they've become.

Thanks

I havent been able to fix it so I'm guessing there must be a damaged component somewhere.

I have decided to order a chinese copy of the Trackclip Pro from Aliexpress. Apparently about the same price but higher build quality if the reviews are to be believed. I'll write if its worth it when I receive it.
