Topic: Bluetooth(HC05) is disconnecting (Read 877 times) previous topic - next topic



I working in the project where I control servo via bluetooth. Everything is working when power is supplied via usb cable. However, when I use power adapter (12V,1A) bluetooth disconnects, usually after first couple of commands. My code is given below. Do you know why it happens ? And how I can resolve this issue. I need power supply for my project (automated roller blinds).

  Software serial multple serial test

 Receives from the hardware serial, sends to software serial.
 Receives from software serial, sends to hardware serial.

 The circuit:
 * RX is digital pin 10 (connect to TX of other device)
 * TX is digital pin 11 (connect to RX of other device)

 Not all pins on the Mega and Mega 2560 support change interrupts,
 so only the following can be used for RX:
 10, 11, 12, 13, 50, 51, 52, 53, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69

 Not all pins on the Leonardo and Micro support change interrupts,
 so only the following can be used for RX:
 8, 9, 10, 11, 14 (MISO), 15 (SCK), 16 (MOSI).

 This example code is in the public domain.

 // servo can be controlled via bluetooth and serial
#include <SoftwareSerial.h>
#include <Servo.h>
Servo servo;
int angle;

SoftwareSerial mySerial(10, 11); // RX, TX

void setup() {
  servo.attach(8); // servo pin
  angle=79;// initial angle position

  Serial.begin(9600);// serial communication
  mySerial.begin(9600);// in our case bluetooth communication

void loop() { // run over and over
  if (mySerial.available()) {
    angle=mySerial.parseInt();//set serial monitor to **noline ending othervise it will recognise \n as 0
  else if (Serial.available()) {
    angle=Serial.parseInt();//set serial monitor to noline ending othervise it will recognise \n as 0
  // important to keep positioning outside "if" statements otherwise will write again
  delay(15);// for working properly


The arduino comunity is helpful as always :(

Did you figure it out?
I also have a bluetooth that keeps disconnecting after a short while.

Not this time...
It was pretty clear that something silly was going on. There was nothing to suggest that anything was wrong with the code, there was no point in even reading it, and changing from USB to a 1A wall wart should not be a problem.
If you are curious about an old thread like this, you can click on the posters name and and what wenton later - if anything. You might find he took up tennis instead.
