Of course the other component in the oscillator circuit that could be bad is the crystal itself. The problem is there is no way to test it. As soon as I touch any part of that circuit with a scope probe the oscillator goes crazy.
If you just happen to have an extra 16MHz crystal, try replacing it...
Look into it later when the dust is clearing off the crater.
Thanks, yes, the other order is for a second clock I want to build as a present. I ordered your new factory printed one, my confidence in soldering a whole new one is not that high now
Im not sure which components might be necessary. I guess I could try replacing the crystal, and (maybe) the chip? Further more, I truly would not have a clue, maybe Ty_Eeberfest has some more suggestions.
