I am trying to make a servo turn 180 degrees, and it compiles but there is an issue with uploading which I assume is attributed to the addition of the motor controller:
Arduino: 1.8.9 (Windows Store 188.8.131.52) (Windows 10), Board: "Arduino/Genuino Uno"
Sketch uses 2152 bytes (6%) of program storage space. Maximum is 32256 bytes.
Global variables use 50 bytes (2%) of dynamic memory, leaving 1998 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 2048 bytes.
avrdude: ser_open(): can't set com-state for "\\.\COM3"
An error occurred while uploading the sketch
This report would have more information with
"Show verbose output during compilation"
option enabled in File -> Preferences.
Is this a noob error or what? I put on my motor controller and plugged the servo onto the correspoding pins, and it did a quick little turn but just for a second. I followed a little tutorial and from what I know I put the right wires into the right spot on the arduino without the motor controller, but I'm not sure. Here is my code:
Any help for a noob is welcome.
avrdude: ser_open(): can't set com-state for "\\.\COM3"Which port have you got selected in the Tools/Port menu in the IDE ?
Is this the same motor shield you posted about causing this problem back in 2016?
