Hobbyking ECO6 balanced charger shorted? help...


This is my first post on these forums
So, today I encountered a problem with my ECO6 charger...
I've had this charger for three months now, but I'm still a newbie with these.
What happened was, I tried to charge a Pb battery with it and when I connected the battery to the charger it just started smoking. So, I immediately disconnected it. The charger was still powering on fine afterwards but two buttons didn't work.

So, I opened the charger and noticed that a resistor had gone off. It had burned a bit which had caused the ribbon cable to burn a little also.

Does anyone know what resistor the burned one is? I'm gonna buy a new resistor but it's really hard to read those color codes... Can someone help me with this... maybe post a picture of the interior of their ECO6 charger.

Replacement of burned resistor


I think that I can help you.
I replace these resistor with R05 2W. If you can't find it use 2 resistors R1 1W parallel.

I hope that you can repair your burned charger.

Best regards,
