Hello dear people of this forums,
I've been lurking for some months now, and after researching I can't seem to find a solution of why my Arduino with an Adafruit Motor Shield on it can't be powered via an external power supply, for example a battery.
Here's a picture of how I actually plugged it:
The Output power of the battery is 12V and 2A. As you can see, it doesn't output anything as the Ampers indicator it's 0. Does anyone know any tip I should check?
I've also read the adafruit page abput how to do it but still no results, I have tried with another motor shield but same result, no power income.
Thanks om advance for reading this post.
