Though I haven’t worked with a complete r2 yet, I’ve worked with many Pi’s, oranges and similar boards before. If a person were to plug an hdmi cable into the orange pi and into a tv - would they be able to observe the boot up sequence, and possibly any boot up errors that may reveal the root cause for their r2 problems?
One of the two in a separate check topic, has been identified as having incorrect batteries

Hi Peter can you check with a test meter [if you have one]if you are getting power from the battery box by testing the power lead from the battery box.


Do the test with the batterys in the battery box but taken out of R2 so your testing the contacts that go into R2'S black box.


Can I ask for some more detail on this battery box test please?
I am still waiting on my last 4 issues, but have my battery box & a set of 18650's
Samsung 30Q Button Top Unprotected
Nominal 3.6v
Capacity 3000mAh
Max continuous Drain 15a
Purchased from 18650.UK

The question is, can I test these in the battery box BEFORE the battery pack is initialised in R2 (charger plug-in for a few seconds)?
Or must I complete the battery pack initialisation first?

Just want to know if I can pre-test my batteries
Also, do I test the R/B on the small white plug or R/B on the larger black plug?

Thanks
Well spin my nipple-nuts & send me to Alaska

You will not be able to test your batterys in the box until the set up safety procedure is completed in issue 100 where you use the suplied charger to triger the battery box on in R2 before his first start up. After the initial start up you can test the battery box by putting a test meter across the end terminals of the battery box wire.

To do a pre check on the battery box inspect that the batterys you have have full contact at both ends making sure the springs are central and that good contact is made at the button end.

Can I also add in future instead of posting in someone elses help thread that you post any questions you may have in a separate thread of your own.

Can both of you reorder the PCB board from Issue 99 . Steve Pb can you just post on here from now on if you have further proplems after you refit the replacement PCB.

PeterP can you please start your own thread with your problem from here on to separate the two builds and prevent confusion. Also PeterP can you start by posting the full spec that should be available from the vendor of your battery on your new thread.

Thanks

Andy


How do I do that? I didn't subscribe but purchased via my newsagent.

Ok I think as I have this problem this needs to be a sticky and with advice as it seems like many facebook users and forum users are having the same problem, mine is slightly different as its working after reconnecting power, but not correctly.

Hi Andy - part finally arrived, fitted and I got it working. I had to manually turn the head until it had hit both stops and then realign the head again before the head finally turned on power up. It was 3/4 turn out on the motor. The only problem I see now is the head turns far too fast and hits the end stops hard on power on and also trying to control it from the app?
