Hey. I first want to say that I'm quite new to Arduinos and the word of electronics and I would gladly appreciate a more elaborate explanation. Thanks!
I'm working on a robot arm, using multiple servos and potentiometers, and I ran into a problem. All my Pots, servos, breadboard, wires, arduino, etc are connected, and the code has successfully been uploaded. However, when I connect a wire from the GND pin to a - pin on the breadboard AND connect a wire from the 5V pin to a + pin on the breadboard, the Arduino turns off(the orange disappears).
