My Hestiapi Deluxe kit arrived Dead on Arrival from crowd supply.
I contacted them directly and they asked i open a topic on this forum.
It appears Parts of the Display holder on the 3d print broke off and the plastic pins holding the board in are all broken. I have tried to power this up but there is only a click from the relay when i apply power but no response or lights from the Pi or the display. I have removed the Hestiapi from its case and seated the display but still nothing… is there a way to power up the Pi without destroying the blue header ? my soldering skills suck
and i dont have the equipment i feel to fix this on my own. The version that was sent to me looks different from the one on the crowd supply page. It does not appear there is any way to power this up without UN-sodering the blue connector to get access to the USB ports.
Crowd supply any next steps or help would be greatly appreciated as i think mine got rattled to hard in shipping and wont power up.
