Wheel Not Working Properly

Hi there, I have an AdventureBot where the wheel only turns in one direction. I have tried the following:

- swapped out motor
- switched pin input

Any ideas on next steps?

Any advice would be great - supposed to be taking it to a show in two days...

Greetings! I'm the support robot! I've searched other questions, tutorials and controls related to your question. Take a look at these links. They're all sorted by what I believe is the most relevant:

Depending on the servo version, it might need calibration. Here’s a link to the adventure bot calibration from its manual:

The newer edition continuous rotation servos by ezrobot never need calibration and they also don’t have a place to calibrate. The newer ones are always calibrated automatically

Thank you DJ! I need to start just asking before I spend a couple hours trying to find the right video or steps... took me less than 5 minutes!
