why won't my picaxe 18m2 project board work? Answered
So i connected a servo to output 4, joined the 0v lines, had the two power sources, downloaded the sample code etc. Nothing happened.
I tested the system using the LED test from the picaxe manual and that was fine.
I must have tried to work the servo off the project board twenty times, until I removed the 18m2, placed it on a solderless breadboard, plugged the servo into the board, joined it all together with jumpers and as soon as I connected power the servo started preforming the code I downloaded while the 18m2 was still in the project board.
So why won't it work connected to the project board? I've tried using another output and a resistor on the signal line.
If anyone has experience of working servos off a picaxe project board I'd appreciate a step by step walkthrough. As usual its probably something simple. thanks.
