Today, our team fried 5 of the ports on our V5 processor. In total we have fried 11 ports. It is a recurring problem and we cannot find on how to prevent it from happening. It is a serious problem because we keep losing ports on our V5 processors, which will eventually make the processor unusable if it keeps happening. The exact problem is that randomly, instead of the motor LED being solid red, it starts periodically flashing and the motor is no longer recognized in the devices screen on the processor. The port no longer accepts any other motor and switching to a different port fixes the problem temporarily, until there are no more ports left. It keeps happening to the same motor on our robot; it's being used to turn a claw for picking up turning point caps. Also, the ports only stop working when the robot is on field foam tiles, leading our team to believe that the problem is caused by static discharging overloading a circuit in the port. Other posts have also listed this as the issue. We have taken numerous steps to try to prevent the robot from getting shocked on the field, but they have not helped. Is anyone else having the same problem or has anyone found a solution to this problem?
