Answered: Not running program

Robot ran fine before. The joystick battery died so i replaced them. After that the cortex connects to the joystick but any program I download does not run. Do I have to power cycle? If so, how do you power cycle?

What is the status of the “Robot” & “VEXnet” LEDs on the Cortex and Joystick?

To power cycle simply turn off-&-on the units.

on joystick: joystick robot and vexnet are green
on cortex: robot and vexnet are green

Try downloading the default code.

If you are using easyC the default code is located under the “Build and Download” tab

If you are using ROBOTC the default code is located here:

  1. File
  2. Open Sample Program
  3. Advanced
  4. ROBOTC VEX Cortex Default
