I am having an issue with my Lumens. Most likely a software config issue? Something with pwm?
I have two sets of 4 lights. One installed and one is a spare (new in box).
The 4 lights that are connected to my BlueROV are stuck on full power and sometimes flickers. I cannot dim them. They are connected to Channel 7 of the Pixhawk and I set the software to Lights 1 Channel 7, the joystick controller keys to lights1_inc and lights1_dec and the yellow cable is correctly placed nearest the plastic motherboard as expected (not upside down).
When I disconnect the yellow signal wire from Channel 7, no change. Lumens stuck on full power. I reboot the robot, lumens still on full power. I should also say that they used to work, they used to dim. I added a gripper and changed some settings, I must’ve messed something up in the settings.
When I install the new set of lights (new in box), they are stuck OFF. I can not turn them on using the Pixhawk. I tested them directly to the battery with yellow wire also to + and they turn on. Not broken.
My spare lights are off.
When I connect the black and red wires of the spare lights to a spare battery, still off.
When I connect the yellow signal wire to Positive on the spare battery, lights on full power. Work.
When I disconnect the yellow wire, they are off.
I connect the lights are stuck on full power to the battery.
The lights are on full power.
I connect the yellow signal wire to +. No change. Stuck on full power.
I disconnect the yellow signal wire, no change. Stuck on full power.
Swap the stuck on full power lights for the new in box lights, and now I can’t turn them on. lol. I’m going in circles.
