I’m setting up a Maslow I got from East Bay Source. It came with a v1.5b control board.
I have a good amount of experience with Arduinos so I was very comfortable getting the IDE set up and the board flashed with the latest firmware. After I did that and the arduino rebooted, the left motor started turning nonstop.
Here are some things I’ve tested while troubleshooting:
- I plugged the right motor into the left port. The right motor started spinning nonstop.
- I swapped the cables fully L-to-R. Left kept spinning.
- If I unplug the USB cable from the PC, the motor stops spinning. I think that means that the arduino has lost power and therefore this is a software issue. (that assumes that the arduino doesn’t scavenge power from the barrel plug off the shield to run)
Anyone have any experience with this type of thing?
