A friend of ours on here (French speaking so not real easy to help) had me log in and I got his system working. Next day he said it no longer rotates. I've tried all the logical stuff and I'm at a loss.
Software driver has all the data correct in the driver window... poth and SGP do not move the dome though they often think they are (numbers count as if it's moving).
BUTTONS DO NOT WORK on toggle!?
I re upped several firmwares... finally 2.11E and got data back in the driver but no rotation. Tried another USB cable, another power supply. (Though Volts reads fine).
I'm stumped. He said when I'm doing things that with the cover off inside by the Xbee there is a red and green light. The GREEN LIGHT FLASHES 3 TIMES?
Is that an error code?
Everything connects fine, Arduino terminal reports back V2.11 I can read v's and codes... but no rotation movement!?!?!!? I'm stumped. IDEAS? WAS FINE YESTERDAY? Sometimes I get an error... like...
I have see this once before.
It all works and then the next time .. nothing .. and all the parameters in the eeprom are corrupted, like speed being set to very low value (like 5) and acceleration to 32435354 (not an actual value but it as big) which prevents the motor from turning. Count does increase but motor doesn't move and rocker switch don't do anything as they use the same value to move the dome/shutter
The other person who has that issue uses my X2 plugin so the issue is not ASCOM but something in the hardware.
I haven't yet been able to identify the actual piece that is failing and why.
As for French .. it's easy :), even I can speak it :) (says the French guy).
