    • The front cover is secured by five tabs.

    • Use the Jimmy to create a gap near a clip and insert a plastic prying tool. Apply moderate pressure to force the clips open.

    • Watch out for alignment tabs that may obstruct your progress. Aim to guide the Jimmy toward the center of the front cover.

    • The TVS diode, marked D6 on the PCB, is located between the antenna and a large IC on the RJ45 port side of the board.

    • It is a 24V uni-directional TVS diode with J leads (SMBJ24A) made by Littlefuse. Note the location of the white bar on the diode, as it indicates its orientation.

    • Use a multimeter or ohmmeter to test whether the diode has shorted. A shorted diode will read less than 1 Ohm in both directions. A working diode will have significantly higher resistance in one direction than the other.

    • If the diode is not shorted, then there may be another issue, and proceeding further may not help resolve the problem with your access point.

    • To desolder the broken diode, apply heat to one side while lifting the diode with tweezers. Repeat on the other side until the diode comes loose.

    • If the solder seems to not want to melt, try using a larger soldering tip to transfer more heat and melt the solder faster.

    • After removing the shorted diode, the access point should power up and function normally. However, omitting this step could result in further damage if an overvoltage event occurs.

    • Before installing the new diode, use a multimeter or ohmmeter to verify that it is functioning correctly. A working TVS diode will exhibit significantly higher resistance in one direction than the other.

    • To install the new diode:

    • Check the orientation marking on the diode to ensure it is positioned correctly, with the bar pointing toward the antenna.

    • Apply flux to the pads and add a thin layer of solder. If solder does not adhere to the pads, you can add it to the underside of the diode pins instead.

    • Hold the new diode in place using tweezers. While applying downward force, apply heat to one pin near the solder until the solder melts and makes a connection. Repeat with the other lead.

    • Verify that the connections are good. There should be continuity between one pin of D6 and a pin in VR3, and between the other pin of D6 and D7.

Conclusione

To reassemble your device, reattach front cover.

Do you think this problem has something to do with Ubiquiti dropping 24V devices altogether? I’ve read about the firmware problems that make 24V passive + POE switch setups a fire hazard, but do you think think this is a design choice or a fix for a flakey on-device power circuit?

Thanks for publishing this, I’ll give it a dead AP I have.

Mine broke in exactly the use case warned against here: https://community.ubnt.com/t5/UniFi-Wire.... This kind of failure definitely seems to be linked to the ‘accidental’ 48V activation issue. Unfortunately the device is OOW, but I’ll try to hit up Ubiquiti and see if I can get some good will.

Thank you! This fixed my Unifi AC Lite, I plugged it into a PoE switch that fried that diode.

Hi, can some help identify the corresponding Diode from this Tutorial on the Unifi UAP-AC-HD? Its POE sections is a little bigger. But didn’t find shorted Diodes. POE LED on Switch is on, but AP not powering on. It boots when 5 V are supplied manually, so somethings is wrong on the poe section.

It gets warm around the silver elko / capacity next to the transformator. But that’s all what I was able to figure out.

would be D28 from what I can see above C556
