Shorted out pololu?
October 23, 2015 03:13PM
So I was trying to dial in my pololus this morning, and I managed to touch the screwdriver to something I shouldn't have. There were sparks.

Now my Y axis motor will only vibrate loudly when it should be traveling. I have tried adjusting the pot all the way down til the motor doesn't move at all, then slowly increasing it. Once it starts moving, it just vibrates....never actually moving the motor more than a few MM in either direction. I've confirmed it is the driver by swapping the X and Y drivers and getting the same results.

Any ideas before I order new drivers?

Order some ceramic screwdrivers too, so you don’t do it again.
