I wanted to connect an fan to GPIO 1 and GPIO 6 and what happens is that accidentally GPIO 1 & 2 were junctioned.

I saw an light only and from that moment is not starting.

Anyone has any ide how to repair it, or is definitively dead? PI 3 MODEL B.

    Could you look at pinout.xyz and then edit your question to make clear which pins were connected. – joan Jun 25 '18 at 15:32
  • If it's not starting anymore after a short, it's almost certainly beyond repair. – Dmitry Grigoryev Jun 26 '18 at 9:49
  • I know the pin numbers. @joan – Burhan Ibrahimi Jun 26 '18 at 12:15
  • How can i test it @DmitryGrigoryev if its repairable ? – Burhan Ibrahimi Jun 26 '18 at 12:17
  • No you don't. You talked about connecting GPIO. GPIO numbering has nothing to do with pin numbering. Connecting GPIO 1 and 2 is not likely to cause harm. Connecting pin 1 to pin 2 will destroy the Pi. – joan Jun 26 '18 at 12:23

Shorting 3V3 and 5V is fatal. You've successfully burned the power management chip. Same happened to me accidentally. No hope for fixing it, sorry.
