o If an error appears, some devices take up to 1 minute to detect the ezb - wait 5-10 seconds and press connect again.

We retried several times.

o Note: do not change or modify the IP address field on connection screen. Use the default value.

7. If a connection still does not occur, are you certain your device is connected to the EZ-B v4 via Wi-Fi?
Yes. In a separate window, we are able to ping the device. Also, bot makes sound during connection process but we never see the connection button go green.
8. Have you double checked the wire connections to the EZ-B v4 using the very helpful learn section on our website? Ensuring the black wire if all plugs matches the black side of the ezb connections? Etc...
yes
9. Reset the EZ-B and repeat this procedure if you are still experiencing issues.

o Resetting tutorial can be found here
o When resetting, does EZ-B speak introduction message as in the video?

Yes it does. I repreated the connection process and it still doesn’t work.

10. If still unable to connect, inquire on the Community Forum and paste answers to these above questions. Also provide what device is being used to connect to the EZ-Robot? (model/operating system) eg Windows 8/Samsung Note 3/Android, iPhone 6, etc

Windows 7.

Update to Windows 10... Windows 7 has been discontinued... disable your anti virus software as well...
#2  
Thank you for the input. Unfortunately, the situation is still unresolved.
#3  
Hi Richard. Thank you for the input. I did disable the anti virus software. Based on what I've read, it seems it should connect with Windows 7.
#4  
OK. I have a laptop with Windows 10. There is no virus protection and its doing the exact same thing as happened with the computer running windows 7.

Use the notepad application to create a new file with the following content:

Code:


$Ipaddress="192.168.1.1"

$t = New-Object Net.Sockets.TcpClient
$t.Connect($Ipaddress,80)
if($t.Connected)
{
"Port $Ipaddress/80 is operational"
}
else
{
"Port $Ipaddress/80 is closed"
}

$t = New-Object Net.Sockets.TcpClient
$t.Connect($Ipaddress,23)
if($t.Connected)
{
"Port $Ipaddress/23 is operational"
}
else
{
"Port $Ipaddress/23 is closed"
}


save the content to a file named "test-ezb.ps1" on your desktop.

Then open a command line window, and move to the desktop folder.

and run the following command:

Code:


powershell -executionPolicy bypass -file "test-ezb.ps1"

Please run on yours (Windows 7 or 10) and let us know the results.

Open a browser window and go to your default EZB4's Http Server:

192.168.1.1

Note: mine is in Client Mode, so the IP Address is a different IP network. Please confirm yours is in AP Mode.

Next Steps:
1) Please disconnect any hardware connected to the EZB4 controller ports e.g. Servos, I2C RGB Leds.
2) Connect a servo on Port D0, before connecting the servo please ensure the source power is the recommended for the servo (EZR Servos is between 6.5 - 7.4V) Lipo 2S battery.
3) Press Diagnostics (Left Side)

press the button "All servos port to 90 degrees", did the servo moved ?
press the button "All servos port to 180 degrees", did the servo moved ?

Thank you for the guidance.
This seems to work again with the fuse replaced.

The robot is in AP mode. The servo moved in the 180 mode but not in the 90deg. mode.
