I’m having some issues with the pinger and need some assistance. Searched the forums and haven’t found a solution.
When I bought the BlueRov, I installed the pinger and used it for 3 dives. The other inspections I did after that didn’t require me to use it so I didn’t start ping viewer for several dives and then I removed the pinger. Now I have a project coming up there I need it again.
I’ve got a new laptop for running the BlueRov. I’ve installed all the software but it does not show up in the ping viewer. There are no serial port available in the drop down menu and no connection can be established via UDP to 192.168.2.2 port 9090/9092.
Everything else works great on the ROV.
Tests so far:
Installed CDM21228_Setup from your website.
Checked all cable connections inside bottle.
Checked continuity of cables from pinger r/w/g/b to the BLUART serial adapter with multimeter, no problem.
Changed USB cable (bought 2 from you, one as a spare) and 2 different USB ports.
Tried on other computers (incl old laptop).
Companion version is 0.0.17 and have tried a reset.
Latest version of ping viewer downloaded from your website.
The green led on the BLUART serial adapter lightens up when connecting battery.
What else can I try or might the pinger be busted?
