Hi, 
Pi4, 3 Pi Zero Ws
Was working and then stopped after fresh startup.
Red Pwr light on and Blue Alert Light is on

I would advise checking the HAT is pushed as far as it will go onto the GPIO header (when using the supplied standoffs) and reboot,  running "i2cdetect -y 1" should show the I2C expander on address 0x20.

Chris.

Chris,

Heres from the Raspberry Pi 4 b:

Heres using a Raspberry Pi Zero w (same SD Card):

So it’s there but not being seen completely.

Chris,

When further testing on the Pi Zero I smelled burning and it was the ClusterHat.
It was the large chip - very hot: 

GL850 SSOP28 USB 2.0 HUB Controller IC

What now?

Kind regards, Jeff

That shouldn't be happening - please send the serial number from the sticker and your postal details to sup...@8086.net.uk as it sounds like you'll need a replacement.

Thanks,
 Chris.
