Re: By the way, Jay's awesome

Thanks Victor, I appreciate the shout-out. Keeping the messageboards alive is least I can do to support the effort you have continued to put towards the Orb. No donations needed, and I certainly don't want any donations toward the ransomware. I have no intentions of trying to go that route, I didn't...

Ransomware stinks...

Unfortunately, the VM that I run this messageboard on got hit with a Ransomware virus and encrypted everything including my most recent backups. I rebuilt and restored things back to a few months ago, that's the best I can do until an AV company comes out with a decryption tool for the variant I got...

Re: New run of orbshields

The messageboard is back online. I apologize for the outage... I had my web server (I use the term "server" very loosely) crap out. I built a new machine and restored the boards, but failed to remember to set the static IP on the new machine so that it could be found via the web. No wonder its been ...

Re: OrbDuino 1.1 in beta

The injector I have pumps out about 15v, but is only hot on the male serial plug on the Orb side, the injector's female pin 4 that plugs into the shield has no voltage on it.

Re: OrbDuino 1.1 in beta

Ok, for the heck of it, I measured again while the Orb was plugged in, I still had 5v on the shield but I only had about 4.7 volts at the Orb. Not sure if that is a valid test or not...

Re: OrbDuino 1.1 in beta

check the voltage drop between the 5v and GND pins on the shield
5.07v
Then check the voltage drop between pins 4 and 5 of the 9-pin serial plug
9.87v
Last, between pins 7 and 5
9.87v

No easy fix, here! :D

ACK ACK ACK! Crud, sorry I didn't see this thread until waay late (I haven't followed this in a while and just logged in to check things). Hey, it's my fault for not keeping up with you in the first place... You have had this project available for many months and I am just now getting around to try...

Re: OrbDuino 1.1 in beta

Well, I have good news and bad news. The bad outweighs the good... Good News: I was able to get my OrbDuino to work. I remembered I had some original SpaceOrb power injectors that plug inline with the serial port to power the Orb... Once I plugged one of those in, I was able to get motion and button...

Re: OrbDuino 1.1 in beta

I hit one of the boards with the soldering iron again, just to make sure I didn't have any cold joints, but it didn't help my situation. Still no love. Guess I'm going to have to really dig in to troubleshoot it further.

:shock:

Re: OrbDuino 1.1 in beta

Still scratching my head on this one... Can't find anything wrong with my solder work, but everything points to an issue reading the serial from the orbshield. The ASCIITable test works, but the OrbShieldSerialTest1 doesn't. I don't get anything from the Orb. I plugged in a generic USB to serial ada...
