So I have a light string out and traced it to a burnt GI connector to the board. I'm going to replace the connector but I noticed how incredibly hot it is. So I'm wondering if I have something else wrong I should look for, or if these things are just inherently ridiculously hot. I am swapping out most of the lights for Led's so hopefully that helps some. This is my first time dealing with replacing burnt connectors.
Also a dumb question, if I just touched the wire to the pin to the wire shouldn't the light string work? I guess I just don't understand the concept of the plastic being burnt to making the lights not come on.... Thanks for any help!
