RC Hardware


We hooked up our 2007 bot the other day and all was well. Now, the robot controller randomly shuts off. The victors that are connected through the maxi block do not shut off, but the others do. Anytime we turn the robot on, it has a solid yellow light for the RC Hardware (which is “+5v output”). Not sure what to do. All the wiring is good, no loose connections. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Note: I tried 4 freshly charged backup batteries.

That error light usually means the 5v output from the Robot Controller is shorted to ground. Look closely at the RC’s digital I/O and analog input pins for any foreign conductive material.

Good, we will check.
