Hello,

I'm using a GPRS Shield (Seeedstudio sim900) to send and to receive data from my server. Everything works fine.
However, when I'm connecting a Servo on a pin (pin 5 for exemple) the servo doesn't work correctly and vibrates.

If I'm using the same code without the GPRS Shield, servo is OK.

Does the GPRS shield interact with PIN 5 ? (The seeedstudio documentation describes the pin 5 as available).

Do you thing that it could be a power supply problem ?

Thanks a lot for your help !!

Possibly. How is the servo powered? Didn't you think it important enough to mention that?

Servo is powered by the Arduino and the Arduino is powered by USB...
I have ordered a 9V/1A power supply to be sure.

Thanks for your answer !
