I have completed building the OpenROV 2.8 and have succesfully gotten the Cockpit, camera, and motors to work. The issues begin when I try to turn on the lasers. When I type “L,” it causes the battery voltage to briefly drop to 0 volts which causes the ROV to reboot. After rebooting, the voltage goes back to normal, but the camera image on the Cockpit goes black and will not resume until I reboot the ROV again. In addition to this, unplugging the USB cable does not power down the ROV. I have to pull the batteries out. I am in a bit of a time crunch to get this ROV finished, so I can use it for my thesis. Any help is greatly appreciated.
I have already tried updating the Beagle Backbone with 30.0.3. I also updated the firmware. All three lights on the homeplug connect either light up or blink.
