Powering the G120 TH Module

I suspect that there is something wrong with my G120TH board. I'm providing 3v3 to it but the power light does not turn on. It only seems to turn on, when I power it via the usb cable.

Hum... I seems that the GND pin next to the 3v3 pin isn't working? Is that even possible or did I connect something wrong? I moved the GND pin and now it's working.

Does anyone have any ideas why this is?

Have you checked to see if there is continuity from that ground pin and another ground pin? Is it confirmed open circuit?

That pin has 9.3 ohms of resistance between it and the ground pins; wearas the other pins are .1 or less.

From when I soldered the pin to the board? My goodness, that would be a horrifying bad solder joint then.

well I look at it this way - that's totes more believable than some other random failure in the GND plane of the PCB that's affecting 1 pin only. But hey, keep looking, or hit it with a soldering iron and see if resistance drops to a believable value Smiley
