Hey guys,
I was asked to check out a malfunctioning Unifi Camera (original dome model) and found that the PoE voltage converter has burnt out and taken the camera with it. Looks like some kind of capacitor? Anyone experienced anything like this?

I've probably had about 20 or 30 Instant AF's die over the years. They simply cook themselves.

Ah right. Is it usual for that to take out the downstream device?

Umm not sure. I've never seen that happen, but it's something that could easily happen.

I was told to get the outdoor ones for better reliability, so I did. Not too much more from PB

I've had both fail pretty evenly - but use the outdoor now because they don't need another patch lead.

Can you open it up so we can see what exactly inside it has burnt up?
