Pen Servo dosen't work
edited January 2015
my name is Lothar and I live in Germany. I just get the Egg-Bot Deluxe Edition today via Wattergott.
Everything works fine, but the Pen Servo doesn't work. I tried a different servo, but also no reaction.
What to do?
Make sure that you're using the lowest 3 pins, and that you have the brown wire towards the outside. If it's still not working, please contact our store directly by e-mail or the contact form.
After removing the EBB Board from the Egg-Bot I found a bad 'cold' soldering joint on the GND servo connecting pin to the EBB.
Redone the soldering and everything works fine.
Love the Egg-Bot, real fun :-)
I'm *so sorry* about the problem on the board, and *so glad* that you were able to get it working.
