My 2.5 is assembled and my first test run... well lets just say it had it's ups and down.
Almost everything worked fine (for some reason the LED's weren't working yet they were before when I had tested it dry).
Anyway, my test we cut short because I started to see the main electronics tube starting to fill with water. I stopped right away and rescued the ROV. In the scramble, I knocked my tether off the chair and the home link adapter box broke.
I brought it home, dried everything out, put the home link back together and was reasonably confident I was going to be fine. Silly me.
Now, I cannot get the home links to communicate. The top adapter gets the 2 edge green lights, but no middle communication light. The E-Chasis home link adapter gets 1 green light and the main controller board has one green and one flashing orange light. The Beaglebone does not power up.
Here's what I checked so far:
1. At the DB-25, both battery packs are supplying 12.7 volts.
2. Without the batteries installed, I get 5V across C5 when plugged into the computer.
3. I get 5v from the tether wires on the DB-25
4. The BB powers up fine if I plug Bluetooth directly to it.
What am I missing?
