lidar not spinning with new motor

Postby dand99 » August 30th, 2017, 12:28 am

So my neato connected started giving a 3000 error and, upon inspection, I noticed the lidar was not spinning at all. I ordered a new lidar motor and installed it. Unfortunately the lidar still does not spin. I measured the voltage where the motor connects to the motherboard and found that the voltage spikes then drops to zero. I'm stuck at this point as I thought a new lidar motor would fix it, but now I'm fearing it's the motherboard. Anybody have any suggestions?

It is necessary to connect the motor to a constant current source with a voltage of 2.8-3.3V. To check the rotation of the engine, the lidar should rotate counter-clockwise. Inspect the fee carefully on the left side, usually the damage is visible to the naked eye.
