I dont know what my JD seems to be stuck and working backwards please help and the ez builder keeps saying: Control named 'Auto Position' does not exist. Can not send command 'AutoPositionAction'.

Based on your post activity, we found some content that may be interesting to you. Explore these other tutorials and community conversations.
2) Are you using the most recent JD project included with the latest ARC?
Also, do you have your JD assembled correctly? All servos should be at or close to 90 (as close to as possible) when JD is in a standing position....
JD didn't come with the snap on piece for the right knee. They sent me a piece replace it and it never worked or moved. the both elbows and claws do not work as well and the most up to date software.
Completing all tutorials will help you enjoy your EZ-Robot.
When you first loaded ARC, it asked if you wanted to view the Courses to follow the Lessons. You must have accidently pressed DO NOT SHOW AGAIN and the NO button. The Course page can be found under the LEARN button on the website - it's quite easy to find. You will find it on the top menu bar of this website. Press LEARN and now you have some courses and lessons
I recommend you read each lesson - however, the ones that are most relevant to you are...
- Calibrate Lever Servos
- Gripper Calibration
- Calibrate Shoulders
- Actually, all of the Calibrating servo applies to you because JD is high precision
Also, have you verified that the servos are connected to the correct connections on the EZ-B v4? The assembly tutorial might be of help as well
Do not forget to follow the Connecting to JD as well.
Let me know if you have read my previous message and we will get things running for you
If looks like it was connected correctly therefore it may be a dead servo. When you set all servos ports to 90 and connect the gripper can you open and close the gripper? Don't put much force on it, if it starts to buzz stop forcing it. If it freely moves (like it did when you opened it in the video) the servo is either not connected properly or it is dead.
If that's the case, make sure you have it connected the correct way around (black to black, white to red and white to white). If you have then the servo is dead.
If the servo is dead use the Contact Us page to file a warranty claim and include a link to this topic. EZ-Robot will sort out a replacement servo and explain what you need to do.
Just wanted to let you know that our Micro servo actually changed over to digital electronics and won't move when powered up, only when a signal is sent. Also wanted to mention that from values of 0-20 there is a dead zone, but it doesn't really matter as you wouldn't want the grippers to open that far anyway.
@Salderson I couldn't tell if you hit the 90 degree button or not at the end of the video, if you did and the servo still isn't working please Contact Us
