    Angry URGENT Touchscreen a bit of smoke is it broken?

    I just made a new stainless surround for my touch screen the image was a little funny so i wiggled the ribbon this fixed it! , but then after it blew a fuse in the car , So I replaced this fuses .. Second time there was a little smoke come out the back ... And I know letting the smoke out is bad?

    sorry to hear that.. smoke is always bad..
    is the monior still working? if yes check everything again... something is shorting. first time it blew a fuse, second time it started blowing somthing else that was acting like a fuse.. you should always replace the fuses with the same max amp fuse

    Yes I did replace it with the same fuse , but in doing this wriggling the ribbon on the board caused the screen to smoke from the back of the controller... I wonder if you can just buy another controller unit as the screen and im sure touch screen controller is fine

    Short Answer Monitor is broken at the moment!
