So I’m feeling a little over my head but we just bought a second hand set up. We put it together, followed all the setup directions (which was quite a headache as neither of us are particularly computer savvy) and got to the calibration part…at which point none of the motors work. Ran a test and they all failed.
Noticed that there is a solid green light on the board, and on the opposite side a flashing yellow light. I suppose that indicates our problem but I don’t know what it means or how to fix it. Any guidance is SO appreciated!
UPDATE: So I read some more and discovered that the power was plugged into the Arduino. Then I ran a test and they worked! Yay! Then I go into calibration and now the left motor won’t turn. Ever few tests it will turn a little bit counter clockwise and then stop, now it is consistently failing both directions. No idea what to do—I’ve unplugged and reseated everything, didn’t seem to help. I also swapped the cables between motors and the left one will now turn but it makes a clunk noise and you have to assist it to get it going again, so maybe the gearing?
