Hope everything is going well with the trident. Sorry to drag you back to the past but I need some advice with my 2.7 ROV.
I took my 2.7 for a dive today. The dive went well but after the dive I was doing some maintenece and have a few problems.
I couldn’t get the full range of movement from the camera servo, it tilts up without a problem, but won’t tilt down (chatters). It will move without the camera assembly, but even with the slightest pressure from my finger it won’t tilt down. I’ve put some machine oil where there are moving parts too. I’m guessing the gears have stripped and it needs replacing, or could it be something else?
While I was trying to fix this I think I fried my BBB. I was putting the electronics assembly into the tube and I heard the ESC’s beep (I guess it reset).
I have fully charged batteries, the homeplug lights are good but no cockpit. When I remove the BBB and plug it into USB power I get one flash from the power LED and then nothing. It does the same thing if i boot from the eMMC or SD card. No lights on the BBB ethernet socket, and no user LEDs either.
Do you have any suggestions for getting it working again? or should I just replace the BBB and servo?
