So, we’re shipping out to Guam in 3 days. I was hoping to take the ROV as part of our toolkit for a study but it’s not looking good. I’ve built it over the past 3 days and would consider myself fairly proficient (no expert) with electronics/wiring etc.
So far I am stuck on the step where you plug the Ethernet and USB cables in and “watch it come alive”. The latter didn’t happen at all. I have checked -
Battery voltage (all good at 3.7-3.8V)
Voltage from topbox (4.8V)
Topbox shows two lights, middle is not lit.
I went back over the electronics steps and made sure everything was done correctly which is was but still nothing from the unit at all. All my connections are well soldered.
Does anyone have a starting point of where I can look for potential problems?
It’s a 2.8, was delivered about 2 weeks ago. I am using the Neutrally Buoyant Tether too.
