Just bought cloudbit starter kit and servo doesn’t seem to work. I’ve seen posts suggesting that plugging it into wall power is the only way to get it to work… i have plugged into wall power and the behavior is the same:
- press purple button and it twitches once the first time
- is unresponsive after that
- wifi signal occasionally is dropped (light starts blinking green)
- note that there is no issue with the LED bit - that works as expected
i found two videos on youtube of it working and also not working, which leads me to think that there’s a hardware problem with the servo.
crap, i’m not allowed to post links. will just give the youtube ids instead:
SWc1RDF9d6U (not working)
anyone have ideas before i return the servo?
(there is an older thread on this topic, but thought i’d start a new one since that one is so old: wifi-on-cloudbit-resets-when-i-test-the-slider-function-with-a-servo/23387/8)
