V4 getting hot after 5-6 minutes

(1/5) > >>

Heya all,
 My V4 interface has suddenly started to heat up after about 5-6 minutes
Communication will stop, unplug from OBD & laptop, wait till it cools, then reconnect works again 5-6 minutes
Any ideas??  Should I open?? I use it almost every day........

Admin:
just unscrew and replace heated up part...
perhaps that is tantalum capacitor in size D or E

what is minor hardware version? - 4.0 or 4.1 etc.

sparky001:
Hi,
 Version 4.1
Seems to be 221 cap getting hot. The one closest to the status and activity indicators

Admin:
i do not sure if you are right
try replace yellow 477A capacitor with 227J

P.S. 221 is inductor coils

sparky001:
Oh I see,  :o
 It is the 221 Coil getting hot. Replace the coil or the cap??

Thanks
