    VA is usually volts AC which wouldnt work... But does it say 12VDC ~800mA on it? That should work then as long as its centre pin positive on the barrel.

    What is this wall wart from?

    Can you take a picture of the label? I'm pretty sure you're feeding the board AC.

    How about verifying with a multi-meter? If you don't have one you will need it sooner or later anyway.

    Yeah I'd be wary that it doesnt say DC. The one I am using is from on an old switch and says DC.

    My FB v4 came with a power pigtail - don't recall if I ordered it in addition or if it came with it. If you have one, just add some wire and test with your car battery real quick. You should be able to quickly confirm normal operation using the car battery as the power supply.

    i wish i also dint trust that power supply earlier.
    i did a test in my car with connection to the battery, and VOILA.. i got it work.
    but one of my relay is not working for some reason. may be manyfacturer's defect.

    thanks all for your help.
