I've bought a Raspberry Pi 3 model b+, to try as a simple computer
Put it on the case, tried for some time, but it did not hit the performance i was expecting, so droped this idea. I kept it save, always in the case, cause some day i would play with it. Didn't touch for almost a year
Now i was trying to install retropie in it, so could play on the TV, without need to take my laptop there. But could't boot at all, pwr light on, no act, no video (a black [actually a blue '-'] screen) Found on raspberry pi forums about some PI "suddenly has stopped booting, after shorting the 3V3 to GND". So i got a multimeter, tested mine PI turned off, and it really seems to have the 3v3's shorted to the GDN's pins I see no way it could happened, since have not even played with it yet.
So now, as it seems that the PI is dead, since there is not way a can replace the MxL7704 chip (what some places say could fix it), what can i do? Considering that here raspberry PI is not really cheap, and i've spent 250 "bucks" on it, i would like a solution to not lose that piece.
