Hi this is team 212B, and we have had lots of motor problems and we are unsure if we are doing something wrong. After about a week, four out of our eight motors have stopped working. One never worked from the get-go, but the other three just stopped working in the past couple days. The motors all died in a similar fashion.
First, the motors would make a high pitch sound, and would not turn. Secondly, the motors would then blink red. Upon trying to manually turn the motor, we couldn't, it was almost like the motor was locked. This happened to all three of the motors. When we changed the ports, the broken motors stayed broken, and when we put the good motors in the ports the broken motors were in, they worked fine. We changed cables and everything. Two of the motors broke when we were using PROS, and the other one broke when we used Vex Coding Studio. We are completely dumbfounded why this keeps happening and with a tournament in a week (and no more spare motors) we really need help.
