It replaces the program the controller runs, but it does not wipe the memory holding the setting because the memory is a separate chip on the shield board. $RST=* is the command.
I’m an arduino newb. I’ll connect the board to my laptop and open the arduino program. Where to I type that command?
There is Arduino basics I’m the wiki. Use the serial monitor.
Would the reset button on the board reset the shield memory?
That is a power reset
Found it. Thanks @Orob
Unfortunately that didn’t do it. Same problem. Any other ideas, or is this board broken?
Are the two boards pressed together all the way? Are all connections in good.
Yes. I even put a rubberband around the board and shield to make sure it stayed in place. The cables are all fully engaged.
What do you see when you run the Test Motors/Encoders command?
