Dear all,

I've finished a long time ago my CH3 hexapod. It worked well with a PS2 control and with a simple code created by powerpod.
Yesterday it has stopped working! :cry:
The left red LED on a Linx PS2 Remote Control start to blink; The "C" button LED on BBII start to blink.
Any key I press nothing happens.
For more info I use a BBII with Basic Atom Pro, SSC-32, wireless PS2 cable and Linxmotion PS2 remote control.
I have not changed anything in my code and the battery is 100% charged.

Any idea?
Thanks

From a basic electronics troubleshooting standpoint. If something was working and now does not, and you are absolutely sure nothing else changed...

Look for a poor connection, the term re-seat comes to mind. Make sure everything with connectors is making a good connection. Jiggle or unplug, replug.

Make sure the batteries are all up. Lots of people freak out, it doesn't work and come to find the 9vdc battery was strong enough to light LED's, but not strong enough to power up the electronics.

Work on electronics first, servos second. No use trying to check servo power if the electronics are not acting right.

Try the PS2 on a PS2 console if available to test it.

That's all I got for now. :P

No it stops blinking when it connects.

...so it blink because there's no a connection? Uhmmm... Which are the reasons why there's no connection?
The receiver is connected correctly but its green LED blink simultane with the LED of the C button on the BBII...
