    pretty sure I hooked up a z probe incorrecctly to my blackbox, I reached out to openbuilds support, but I thought I'd cross post.

    I hooked up the two wires one to ground and one to vcc+ and now my whole board wont respond. what can I do?

    I would have thought it would pop a fuse, but it definetly smoked something. does anyone know how you can get spare brain or muscle boards to purchase?

    yeah when I go there, it only gives me an option to buy the whole thing! I searched the FAQ and the manual and no where does it describe where I can buy just a single board.. just the whole thing.. which kinda defeats the purpose of when you do something stupid, like I just did :) I will email them; I just thought I was missing something!
