hi all, Sad Sad news about Eshine and the GS320

thought id post this straight away as i have had quite a alarming fault with my GS320 unit

And it is very alarming indeed, so if you own one, PLEASE READ

It all started when one LED went out, so i swapped them over for another good LED and that went out aswell.


So, opened up the unit, and see straight away the main power cable was almost burnt through!!!
WTF??
now it was so burnt it was only hanging on and still connected by few single threads of wire!

what would of happened if the wire had dropped off and down onto the cooling fins of the LED below? <and that gets really hot.>
As the other end would still be connected to the power driver,,,,making it still live with 320W

yup, BANG. lucky for me it didnt.

I looked further into it and it had burnt out the controller board, Eshine admitted knowing about this fault,,,, that also worried me, how come they didnt withdraw them then?


Greed?.

They sent me a replacement part anyway so i fitted it myself, well i had to, theres no way i was gonna send this whole unit back to them!
i also fitted a new power cable and re-routed it through the Fans.

The main problem it was getting 'crimped' by the power driver above it when the back panel was shut, it pressed the power driver down onto the power wire connections to the controller board.

Making it literally melt, not good, could be a fire hazard!!!
we did inform them of this a couple of days ago but no reply.

So here i am, with pictures!
So, please please everyone who owns one of these, take the back panel off and check it!
Eshine dont seem to care, you want to see the reply i got from them when i said people should know,

infact i will


here it is

everything you've said is right, but what about the obvious corrosion on the wires? To me, it appears that the wires got hot to the point of overheating caused by the corrosion. I've seen this happen in cars where wiring and or battery cables corroded until they failed and or caused a fire. Did you spray your plants with the light exposed? I can see no reason for that much corrosion otherwise, except for maybe very high humidity.

nah mate, you can see from my grow journal I never sprayed my plants and RH was normal @ 40-55% through out the grow.


You made a good point tho, cheers
