I would also like to add upon using the read() function of the Servo library, it just constantly reports 1 (even if i manually change the position by hand)

Anyway this setup isn't working for me, as the servo isn't working. Is this because the servo I am using is busted from me trying to use it on 5V when it is recommended for 4.8V?


You can strip the gears in a servo by twisting on the servo horn. Probably too late.

Is it possible the servo is bad or connected improperly? (The positive voltage switched with the variable lead)  I have also purchased a DOA servo with a cold solder joint, that when re flowed, worked fine.
