Topic: Windows looking for Servo drivers when connecting arduino via USB! (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

I have now tried using an external power supply (being 4 AA connected in serie, giving 6 volts total). The servo reacts for a millisecond, then shuts down, giving no sign what so ever. The control signal value doesn't matter, and the only way to get it move again, is to reconnect the battery.

Does anyone know how to deal with this? I am seriously considering to cut them open and control the motors manually very, very soon!

And thanks for the feedback.  ;)

did you connect the negative side of the AA batteries to your ground?

No, but you're right.. The voltage would be floating otherwise.

Thanks!

no problem, a lot of people make that mistake. good luck with your project!
