servo motor control

hi guys

i'm new to arduino (it's very cool)

programming a servo, really simple bit of positioning, uploads to the board ok, the servo doesn't do what i want it to...

i get this red message at the bottom:

avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00

any ideas...?

  1. Servo probably needs more power than USB can supply. Make sure the servo is on a separate power source (5 or 6 Volts, 1 Amp or more).

  2. Make sure the Arduino ground pin is connect to the black wire of the servo along with the negative side of the servo power supply.

  3. Have someone check your sketch for programming errors.
