Hi Guys,

My lattepanda alpha 864 failed about 6 months back, I've not had time to look into or diagnose till now.

There are no signs of life, no red or blue leds lit when applying power from either the supplied usb c adapter nor an 3rd party like the usb c charger from a Macbook pro, both chargers are working fine with other devices

The only thing I noticd which is a bit odd, the bga directly behind the wifi/Bluetooth recieved appears to have crack in it, almos tlike it blew out. What is this chip, what else can I do to diagnose the fault.

The board was bought on the 19/10/18 and its had all of about 3 or 4 months of actual use in that time.
