HELP! Board loading but not responding!?

Hi all,

I'm new on here and come baring an issue. I've made an XY plotter for my first project, almost done - ish.

I'm using two old printers same motors etc, I've wired them both up, the exact same way. Testing them with one arduino board, they both work fine, but from my other board nothing. (both 328 boards)

I need 2 boards for the different paths the X and Y axis' will be taking. I've selected the correct options from both Tools > Board and > Serial port.

The board loads, TX and RX do their usual flashes, then nothing....

Any ideas?

Cheers

"Nothing" is pretty broad and vague. The motors don't move? Serial.print's don't work? What does, or does not, happen?

Well if the upload is successful with no errors reported, then that leaves software problems and/or wiring errors. If you can post your code and wiring then maybe someone can actually help you. Otherwise we haven't been given enough to help.
