After a full day of troubleshooting, we have managed to get the ROV control systems from nothing, to communication with the computer and a successful upgrade of the Firmware to the latest version of the 2.5 BETA. We now have full control of the LED's in the cockpit for Brightness, and the webcam image is coming though, however the ESC's seem to have no power coming to them at all, and the Servo Motor for the camera is also in the same position. We are currently using a benchtop power supply for testing ( our batteries have not arrived) and when we turn the switches on the ESC's to the on position the Power supply starts flickering and saying that there is a short circuit, and when this happens the Web interface freezes and we lose contact with the ROV.
if the ESC's are in the off position the cockpit seems to be sending signal to them to move., but neither the thrusters nor the Servo are reacting.
Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated!
