I don’t know if anyone can help me, but it does seem that the main controller board has either failed or the Ethernet plug on the controller is no good.
I had used this several times before and everything was fine and I was able to connect to the cockpit and make everything work. Today, total failure on all counts. I had noticed beforehand that the entire system was restarting randomly, but didn’t think anything of it. Right now, there is hardly any power, there is a high pitched whine from the ethernet plug on the main controller and no communication at all! All I get is a very dim power LED and that’s all! I have removed the ethernet plug and tested the other components. The BBB is fine from what can see, servo is fine and everything else looks OK. I plug the ethernet back into the board and everything fails again.
I had not done a thing but leave it on my table ready to calibrate the lasers, nothing changed. Obviously something on here is loading down and I cannot pinpoint it. I think some new components are in order here.
