Raspberry Pi Zero W Broken?

Sat May 18, 2019 7:13 pm


I recently just bought a new Raspberry Pi zero W from A UK reseller
It arrived a few days late, but no worries.
When it arrives im excited and i Flash a Micro SD card with Raspian and OOOh, it doesnt work...
I plug my Power Supply in (5V 2.1A) into the Pi and no lights, The CPU heats up in under 2 Seconds to unbearable heat
and No output on the screen.

I think the CPU might be shot somehow or could be something else.
If you could somehow help me find out what it is then please do

The Pi is bust (the symptom of very hot very quick is pretty terminal).

If it's not something you did get a refund or replacement from the supplier.
