The Pi data states 5±0.25V; the MxL7704 PMIC Data states Input voltage range: 4.0V to 5.5V so NO If your 6V UBEC is producing 8V I would throw it in the bin!

You've made a mistake, I'm afraid. You seem to be attempting to switch the relay coil with a GPIO pin. Unless your relay module is designed to use a 3.3V input you are at risk of breaking another RPi. GPIO pins are for 3.3V - and ONLY 3.3V In addition, the GPIO pins are delicate little flowers; they won't source (or sink) much current, and they don't ...

Unfortunately there are many different relay boards out there using this particular relay but that might feature different driving electronics. So it's difficult to give a definitive answer. There are however some indications that this excellent arcticle /1/ covers this board and the problems the OP describes. (Image source: /1/) I leave it to the OP to ...

After spending ~ 20 min searching for an actual data sheet on the SH5461AS - and not finding one - I'm of the opinion this is JAPCJ (just another piece of Chinese junk). My best advice is chuck it in the bin & find a part by a reputable manufacturer. There are lots of manufacturers that publish spec sheets (even on parts as old as this one) - here's an ...

From the rather unclear photos you have posted the device does not have an opto-isolator but a transistor. It is unclear why it doesn't work, however there is another type of poor module, triggered by a low level, with a PNP transistor which is not controllable from 3.3V. (This saved the manufacturer some fraction of a cent.) Without a circuit it is not ...
