No movement

by helimadness

Hi All,
Just finished printing my Otto and wanted to test the software. I only have 1 servo connected at the moment as waiting for the rest to be delivered today.
I can verify the sketch in arduino and upload all appears fine. LEDs flash on the Nano and it says completed uploading but nothing happens. I thought the buzzer or servo attached would do something.
Have tried with USB cable and batteries. Batteries were brand new total 6.4v or something.
Should it just start automatically? I tried pushing the reset butting. Re flashing different sketches. All wiring and parts as per the manual. Will it run off the USB cable from a computer USB or is that not enough power ?

Sorry little bit new to Arduino. Have only done a couple of basic projects before.

Doing this as a project with my Daughter. Got the last parts coming today to finish building with her tonight. Dont want her to be disappointed if it doesn't work :-)

Help Needed

by saltydogitron

I just got my kit and assembled my Otto DIY. Unfortunately, after uploading the .ino files per the guide, my otto still won't move beyond a slight twitch when it is turned on or plugged into the PC via USB. There are two red LEDs (one on each board) that are lit and I have checked all of the cabling at least twice. Any ideas what went wrong? Help!
