USB Microscope ~ LED's Failing

by evanmilton on Thu Aug 16, 2012 7:51 pm

I purchased the USB Microscope (http://adafruit.com/products/636) about a week ago, and since then 3 of the LED's have failed. The brightness control also appears to have malfunctioned to the point where it is either on, or off. Any suggestions?

Other than mounting it on something a little more stable, no.
