Here is an image I found on google. i hope this helps
Yeah, looks pretty fried.
How did you manage that?
Not really sure. I was trying to use the expansion port. It’s kind of hard to explain but here goes. After watching the OPlab School video where the kitchen utensils are been used I tried to copy that by using the strings on my double bass. It actually worked when I used the OS857. Maybe the OS 651 was too good.
What sesnsors do you have and where are you based?
I have all 3. Still in original boxes etc. Also three cables. I’m based in Australia.

Sorry to hear its broken my friend. Perhaps its worth contacting Teenage Engineering. You never know they might offer you a new one, or atleast a big discount on a replacement?
If I had to guess, I would say somehow mains power (110/220V) leaked into the board and fried it… didn’t you see it smoking or feeling very hot?
Hmm, but how Punji? I am in 240 volt world. I was using the specific power supply… I saw nothing unusual. That’s why I was so surprised. I was trying to be careful, especially after reading the usage warnings in the manual(s).

Okay, I don’t understand. can you please elaborate. I am all ears.
To me it looks like a result of the OpLab being marketed as “connect everything to everything” device PLUS insanely limited manual/guidance… but that is just me.
Your picture is a little out of focus, so it is hard to tell… that mess around the pads could also be solder flux residue left after a manual soldering operation, but that does not seem to make much sense either. Please try to take some sharper pictures and forward that to TE, they should be able to figure this out.
Ironically, the OPlab school videos demonstrate the “connect everything to everything” ethos too. For a $299 euro pre-order and a 1 year wait, it’s an expensive learning curve.
Ever get anything back from this? Thinking about getting an oplab but kind of seems they are not ready yet. Are early models really not compatible with new OS updates?
Hope you got it sorted anyway!
Yes, TE replaced it. I am hoping for a Guide/Manual so that I can use it safely.
All versions are compatible with the latest OS.
