Help! Irobot Movement Panel Wont Work And I Need This Working For A Presentation

Irobot Create EZ-B

Followed DJ's youtube video on soldering the servo cable and connecting it to the irobot.

Had the Movement Panel working and could control my Robot perfectly when EZ-B let you choose the port. Now I update EZ-B and the firmware to 15.7 and it tells me I have to use D0, so i did. No response or movement. Help me.

Would love to skype or call with someone who knows whats going on. I need this to graduate highschool.

Upgrade to ARC Pro

Subscribe to ARC Pro, and your robot will become a canvas for your imagination, limited only by your creativity.


Thats the only option, and yes.


Did you try and destroy the Movement Panel and recreate it? (if you are using a saved open project from the previous version).


I have rebooted ARC multiple times. Nothing.


I would make sure you are communicating with the EZ-B with a servo or something. Then check your connections. Maybe reboot the Roomba too.


Servo works fine. How do you reset an iRobot create? Couldn't find it on the web. ^found that but dont know how to send op codes..


Check the use old protocol option and deselect 115200 baud rate.


Did not work. Any way I can download the older ARC? I really need this fixed!

Does the Roomba tones panel work?

if not try using old protocol and holding down the Play button while powering on Create until you hear a sequence of descending tones then try the movement panel/tones panel

You can use a script sendserial to communicate with the Roomba but you need to know what baud rate it using 1st

Thats about all I can think of


I cannot reproduce this issue. I have 3 roomba's at different baud rates and they all work. Port D0


I took a volt meter to D0 and found out it isnt producing a signal. How can I fix this fast? My servo doesnt work on D0 but does on D1. Anyway to get the old version? stress


D0 has been damaged. It's the only port that supports the roomba. Contact Us and ask for a replacement chip
