I had just finished my month long arcade project last night and was playing some street fighter. I lost connection to the xbox even though it was still plugged in. I looked underneath and smoke was pouring out. I unplugged it immediatly. Just now, I plugged it into my PC so I could test what has been damaged. The very second I plugged it it, my thumb on the pcb got a blister. What the hell could be causing this? I played for hours straight and had no problems, but the one time it nearly caught fire, I had played for no more than 10 minutes.
Info: I’m using a Madcatz 4716. The case is wooden and I had hot-glued the pcb to the inner wall. Is it possible that the hot glue is shorting a 5V connection and causing abnormal current?
