Issue with GPS or FC - Help needed to undestand which one

Hello ,

I got a POWER.FLAGS 8 (overcurrent) and the gps and compass went flat (health on compass 0 Nsats 0 ) . am not sure if its the GPS unit or the CAN port on the FC or the FC it self .

Is there a way i can test the the HERE3 to see if its ok ? or the CAN buss on the cube orange ?

Can someone please help with this ?

I think might be a sudden power increase or short circuit on your device.
Can you please check that?

Can you please help understand what is happening here ?

@Mike_ZY i can see the flags that say overrcurrent

What is next ? How can i be sure that either here3 or cubeorange is not faulty

Can you please check all onboard device and make sure they all functional ?
Can you operate these device one by one each time and and monitor board voltage on GCS ?
Didi connect your gps on another can port to check it?
