burning smell coming from board??

hey, i was checking what model my board was and before putting it back into my body, i tried turning it on and a faint burning smell came into the air. did i fry my board by turning it on outside of the body??

Burnt smelling electronics is never good. You're only one step away from the magic smoke. In case you didn't know about it, inside all electronics is "magic smoke" that makes things work. When the magic smoke leaks out, things stop working.

Yes, they do. They say to never turn on the main board when it is not attached to the body.

y would u do that anyway, u can read what version the board is when its in, u can adjust the modes, and turn it on - no need at all to take it out, let alone take it out then turn it on derrr

Not to be a jerk, but you should give your mini up for adoption before you cause it more harm.

randomness is key to pissing off teachers, randomly shout words in weird voices throughout the class, when the teacher isnt looking, and u will be succesfull

No way.... You have got to be kidding... Same here... Another kid in my class ratted me out... I had to stay an hour after school. It was no big deal though. I slept through the whole detention.
