Over voltage on my RPi

Fri Jan 11, 2019 2:11 pm

Hello everyone!

I was using my Rpi 3 when some strange defect appeared in the power supply causing the power input components to burn. I would like to know if it is still possible to use my RPi 3 by removing the damaged components and powering via 5V GPIO pins?

It looks to me like you have destroyed the chip that converts the 5v in to 3.3v required to run your pi, with this chip destroyed your pi will not work , nor will it work with it removed.

You may also have damaged other parts of the pi so your best option is to replace it and the faulty power supply.
