I've been fiddling with my first light and I've run into a problem. I put togehter one of the Cutter kits with triple XPG's and a bFlex driver and put it in a Marwi housing. It all went together smoothly and worked great. Then I decided to mess with success... I installed an led indicator light to show when the light was on. I tested the light while it was still apart and both main LED and indicator light functioned. Reassembled everything back into the housing and fired it up - nothing.
I took it apart and found one of the leads to the triple PCB had come loose and I resoldered it. still nothing. While testing the circuit with a multi meter I touched the positive probe to lead and the lights came on!
Could I have gotten something into the positive hole in the PCB that is acting as an insulator or have I screwed up the PCB with too much soldering?
I've attached a close-up photo of the PCB to see if anyone can see damage.
