Particle Photon Gets hot and wont boot

Using 4 particle photons to control wifi connected brushless motors, they have been working fine for a few weeks but today one just stopped. No lights at all, so I connected it to my PC via usb. Still no lights, but gets hot after a few seconds. Would apprecate any advice. As i said 3 other photons are being used in the same application and are working just fine.

Hey Narayan,

Sounds like a few things going on there, if the board itself is getting hot it’s likely to be a hardware issue rather than software. Could you give a bit more context about how you were using the motors?
