I did *something* to my MRK1000 as it was connected to the motor shield. It not longer connected to my pc even though the leds were still functioning. I bought a new board and it will connect, but not if it's connected to the motor shield. Can someone help me trouble shoot? is there anything I can do to fix this? Has breaking the arduino board broken EVERYTHING connected to it at that point?
Maybe reset MKR1000 by clicking the blue button twice and program/install libraries again?
Honestly something like that is happening to me now. I bricked the MKR1000 and ordered a new one. I now reordered the shied because I think it bricked too. Fast Forward -- Now that the shield and MKR are working. I now think my encoders have blew out. I'm concluding that everything attached to the MKR1000 bricked/fried when I initially fried the board. I've re-ordered both [MKR1000, Motor Shield] and now about to re order the encoder. I'm working on the Arduino engineering kit lesson learned, I guess.
Full Disclosure: I had the components working with the encoder until I accidently plugged the lipo battery into the I2C headers. Lol, I don't know what I was thinkin. I guess brain exhaustion or lazy..
Unless someone tells me the encoder can't be bricked, because right now my encoder isn't working/stuck (won't rotate)
update: the encoder isn't broken. The wires from the encoder were wrong. duh
