Defective Servo?

Hi, I have Six and it was working perfectly until just recently. One of the servos doesn't seem to be getting a signal or isn't responding. It was on port D1 so I swapped it for the servo on port D4. No luck. I opened it up to see if there was an obvious issue. All of the wires are soldered to the board. Any suggestions?


Upgrade to ARC Pro

ARC Pro will give you immediate updates and new features needed to unleash your robot's potential!

@Tom... If doing the usual... saving your project... closing ARC, powering down Six and rebooting doesn't fix it... try just creating a new simple project with one control... a vertical or horizontal servo control and see if it responds to that... If not you may need to Contact Us to see if there is anything they can do....
I tried all of the different example projects and rebooted several times. I swapped ports on the EZ-B just to make sure it wasn't the EZ-B. I think I tried everything. That's why I suspect the servo died.
@Tom... you may be right.... best to Contact US... Worst case scenario, the servos are only $12, so at least it's not the end of the world type problem...:)
