Sevo Help (Solved)

I'm using the PICAXE 20x2 to move a servo.

Here is the servo = http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=9065

I do this:


servo B.0, 150

pause 700

servo B.0, 75

pause 700

servo B.0, 225

puase 700

goto main

For some reason. the servo bounces back and forth between these positions without pauseing and then just moves to the far left, stops and jitters.Another servo has done this to me. It's either my program or servos just don't like me.

I just added a bigger capacitor like what voodoobot said.

Select your preferred way to display the comments and click "Save settings" to activate your changes.

If you use your code above you will get an error massage, because you wrote "puase" instead of "pause".

How did you connect your servo to Picaxe? Do you have other output devices connected to your Picaxe?

Please check also your operating voltage.
