Pinecil Troubleshooting
#1
Hi,

I used my Pinecil yesterday for a couple hours and today it stopped working. Connected to the PinePower Desktop via USB-C, it just repeatedly blinks on and off. Occasionally it will turn on after replugging, but the temperature is incorrect (shows 450 C) and the soldering tip never gets hot. I tried to flash the firmware, but the Pinecil won't enter USB mode (holding the minus button, plugging in, and releasing minus button) and the Pinecil Firmware Updater doesn't show that it's connected. Any help here would be great!

Cheers
