Looking at the picture of the board here:
I see neither an SMT nor through hole footprint for a fuse (F1?) on the board.
Maybe the fuse was eliminated entirely in the latest design? Maybe the reason was that a blown fuse that requires rework of the board to replace isn’t much value over having no fuse at all?
So, four choices, I guess:
1. Use jumper in the footprint for the through hole F1.
2. Use only the through hole fuse
3. Use only the SMT fuse (like the board that died last fall
4. Populate both (like the board with the burnt F2 that died over a year ago)
Can anyone help?
