My Pineapple Mk5 has been working flawlessly since I got it a week or so ago, until today. I have used my pineapple tethered to my android phone before without any problems. I was using it like this again today for about 15 minutes or maybe longer without a hitch when suddenly I lost connection to my phone. I checked my phone and it showed no device was connected. Shortly after this I unplugged my android phone and it gave me a message that stated, "Charging paused, voltage too high." It continued to do this without being plugged in until I left the battery out for 10+ minutes. I tried tethering to another phone and it said no device was connected.
I have tried tethering several times since then and no phone will show a connected device. I have rebooted, reset, and reflashed the pineapple without any change. Also, I always get that strange charging message after unplugging my phone from the pineapple (with 2 different batteries even).
Everything else seems to be working, just the USB port is giving me problems.
Has anyone else seen anything like this? I suspect something failed mechanically, but If anyone has any suggestions I'd love to read them.
