picaxe 28x1 got burned..anything to do?
February 18, 2009
it’s a sad story..
I was working on my robot trying to make a servo turn the directions i wanted
After I got the positions I wanted from the servo I connected it to the front wheels axles and plugged it in again, just like before
Only this time something got burned, smelled the motors, wasn’t it, smelled the board, and let’s just say it smelled funny!
Tried to connect it to the computer- nothing, the sensor led is not on as well (it should be on).________________________
So it’s obvious something is not working in the board, the question is what?
The servo motors did get a 7.2 volt through v2 and let’s assume somehow It got to v1 (although it worked ok before with 7.2 volt in v2):
Anyone have any idea what is the first thing that can get burnt if high voltage will get to the board?
I’m pretty desperate… any help would be much appreciated.
