I am a bit confused. Currently, I am working on a project that uses Arduino Uno, an EasyDriver, and a stepper motor. The stepper motor is attached to a metal plate that will cover a camera lens at certain times.
When I would first run the code, the stepper motor would turn just fine, as it was supposed to. A few days later it seemed to be fighting to rotate and now, it doesn't seem to respond at all. I did change the code a bit so in order to make sure it wasn't an issue with the code I ran other people's test codes for stepper motors controlled by an Arduino. Still nothing happened/I got no response from the stepper motor.
Is it normal for a stepper motor to just go bad? I know it's wired correctly because, like I said, it worked before and I have not touched the circuitry. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
