  • Brain and/or Controller Failing

    When I first opened up the Starter Kit and put everything together, the built-in firmware worked great.
    After updating it, it took a turn downhill.
    Now the right joystick on my controller won't work at all.
    I tried a different controller and had the same issue.
    I tried switching out the motors, and the problem persisted.
    I tried making programs with RobotC 4.0 and Modkit (not relying on the built-in program) only to encounter the same issue.
    I tried different ports and it didn't make any difference.
    I tried using different wires and that didn't work either.

    At this point in time I'm thinking I have a hardware issue and/or that my controller/brain need to be reset somehow.
    Any advice?

    Hello Mike,

    I apologize about your frustration.
    I recommend you to calibrate your Controller, as this has fixed such issue before.
    For the Calibration procedure, all you have to do is the following:

    1. Tether Controller to Brain ( )

    2. Press (X) on Brain

    3. Select "Calibrate Controller"

    4. Rotate thumb-sticks 360°

    5. Wait 30 seconds, and make sure the Brain LCD updates to the following values: 0,127,255

    6. Press () to save

    Let me know your results.
