I am desperate for help and I hope someone can assist me. Last weekend I assembled my OpenROV but I cannot get it to power up.
I tried the following suggested trouble shooting suggestions:
Check your batteries make sure they are charged and having good contact with one another.
[10.17 VDC on each tube, check on batteries and on the DB-25]
Disassemble and reassemble your controller board (taking off beagle bone and homeplug and ethernet jumper) making sure they are plugged in.
[I disassembled and reassembled as suggested]
Make sure tether wires are in the topside box securely.[confirmed topside tether connections as suggested]
I also did the following as described in the link: http://youtu.be/f_9NFZDDp88
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF I AM MISSING SOMETHING!! I am under a deadline for my underwater racing event.
ROV Serial Number: 1762
Type of Issue: Power Up Problem
Issue Description: I have everything assembled, when I plug the DB25 cable
in I see the lasers flash briefly then nothing else happens. I did try
plugging a USB cable into the Beagle board and I was able to get the Pilot
website to open but I could only see the camera, not other functions were
working. I have an event underwater racing event on March 13 - . http://vimeo.com/75658143
Was your ROV pre-assembled?: No
