Personally i love the TLog player, so i can see how the screens look with…"
"You can still test the board on its own. just connect the power board to the pixhawk, and the gps + compass. when outside power it on and see how quick you get a green light. you should at least not have any accel and gyro errors.
"Also, never use the continuity tester of your multimeter on a board like the pixhawk, remember the components are connected and you don't know what voltage is given out of your probes, if its 9V it could damage the 3.3V chips. Also it doesn't help…"
No the capacitors should not be bridged. Use your phone with max digital zoom to check that they are not touching the solder bridge or themselves. If they are, just drag your solder iron quickly across where they bridged to free it."
"You shouldn't have done that fix, Dmitry found that it only partially fixes the problems as you noticed yourself. To fix all the gyro and accel health you just had to do the fix i did above, remove Q601, replace the R621 resistor with a 220ohm and…"
I can confirm that the fix provided by Dmitry Prokhorov works great. Dmitry already merged the fix into the Pixhawk Hardware repo on github, but for those that want a fix for their 2.4.5 board, and can solder SMD without issues, i posted my…"
"So i can confirm that this works great. I was not able to arm after changing battery, nor in cold weather before doing the fix.
I removed Q601, bridged two of the legs as a pass-through and replaced R621 with a 220Ω resistor.
My Pixhawk is from…"
