Python: Robotics Servos Won't Reverse, Only Go One Direction and Stop There

  • I'm trying to get some Servos to work with Python on my Raspberry Pi:

    http://magicduino.com/Images/ItemsMedia/File/7203.pdf

    And for some reason I can't get them to reverse with this script:



    1 through 15 seem to be all the different positions, but it only will only let me go down.

    I can tell it to go to 5 then 4 then 3 etc.

    but I can't tell it to go back up to 5 or 15.

    Going past the scale doesn't help either as I tried a little incremental script to see where it actually moves (to see if it at least jiggled anywhere else from 1 to 100) and nothing got it to move.

    I've tested with different servos and it seems to work with them, in fact the notes in the code I've included mention these and what works for them.

    What am I doing wrong?

    :help:

  • I found out that it was actually a hardware malfunction / defect for once!
