I'm new to the electronics field and learning a lot. I am having a problem with the DFPlayer resetting as the mega goes through the setup.
My understanding is that this is a power problem. If I unplug the speakers, the program will run fine. I can plug the speakers back in after the setup and it will work as expected. When I attach a meter to the DFPlayer, I can see the jump in current from 0.04 to 0.11 (I'm using the 10A port). The DFPlayer is powered from a regulated 5V rail from a 6 pack of AA batts with a ±7.8V. The rail also powers the mega, a nrf24L01, a couple buttons, 16x2 lcd, a buzzer, and two led's.
Is there a simple fix for this? I'm a total newbie and have tried searching but could not see a solution.
Thanks for your help.
