Servo problem with "start here" bot
April 18, 2009
So a friend and I are working on our version of the start here bot. Everything is hooked up and working fine...with the exception of the servo. I am using the 28x1 picaxe with firmware a.5 (so this isn't a problem that i've seen in other threads about the wrong firmware).
When i plug the battery pack in, the servo does a quick twitch, but when i send any commands to it...i get nothing at all. I've removed the darlington and I'm using the resistor in the proper location. The only other thing I can think of that is different is that we are using only a 3xAA battery pack...but that should still be enough power for it to at least do something?
I'm just using simple commands as well
servo 0, 75
servo 0, 225
servo 0, 150
any ideas on what I might be missing?I've attached a pic of the connection as well.
