Android head unit bench test

Post by littlepolo » Thu Jul 04, 2019 3:40 pm

I have an Android head unit I need to bench test (probably need to update the firmware). Is if going to be OK to power this up on the bench without speakers, etc. connected? Not going to burn out anything?

Quick update on this. I used an old PC PSU (power supply unit) and jumpered the PSU's yellow wire (12V) to the switched and constant live (red and yellow wires) and the PSU's black wire to the PSU's black. Turned volume down to minimum.
