Start Here Robot Urgent Issue
October 28, 2012
I began programming my picaxe. I came into some problems...
1) When i ran the servos program (at 75) it only turned a quarter of an inch in that direction.
a. the servos cant be turned past that direction manually either
2) When I tried running the high and low commands
a. one wheel turned slightly and stopped
b. the board went hot so i quickly disconnected it and took out the batteries
The servos issue is beyond me. Does the board getting hot while attempting to run the motors imply there is a short on the board? Back to soldering? (this is my first time and there is a fair chance they suck) What should I resolder in that case and have I destroyed my board?
