Just spitballing here… but my M65-A is acting really whacky. Definitely somethig wrong with the PCB. It’s had issues for a long time with static causing it to reset. I try not to use it in the drier months. But I think it’s time to rebuild.
I actually own another JC65 pcb for it, but I assume it will encounter the same issues eventually.
My first questions are:
Does a PCB with proper static protection actually exist? Can you actually protect the PCB from mild static shock? Or is it all just a gimmick?
Now, I’m fairly certain there are a lot of people out there with dead M65-As that have either shelved them, or have resorted to dremmeling the port and using a USB-C PCB. I might very well do the same.
My next question is:
What do you suppose the price would be to commision someone to design a USB-mini replacement board with static protection that fit the case?
Maybe it would be affordable if you ran 20 or more PCBs?
Anyone have feedback? Anyone have an “in” with a good PCB designer?
