do you still have the original chumby 1 adapter? they're fixable.
When I made my original fix, I did so following instructions I found on another site. Regrettably, it was only in the exuberance of a resurrected Chumby One that I stumbled back to the Official Forums and found out that they should be saved/salvaged. So...the original is gone.
The replacement adapter I created last week had this red LED on it that stayed lit constantly when it was working. Today, it's flashing. I opened it up to see if I could visibly tell where the problem may be located, but nothing stood out to me.
I took the gamble and ordered the Type B adapter rather than trying to go at it on my own again. We shall see what happens.
