Servo and picaxe: need resistor ?
September 6, 2008
hello, i'm trying to use a servo with my picaxe. I tried it on Arduino before, and it worked just connecting the pins at the right position, without resistors.
now i just connected the same way on the picaxe, and it doesn't move.. I then remembered that in the "start here" project, a resistor was used.. So the question is: is it necessary? why do i need a resistor? and how do i wire it ?
Another thing that is probably messing up.. i have the darlington chip there.. shoud i remove it?
