Motors dying for no reason

A torque motor on our robot’s 4 bar just died. When we plug it in and go to devices the brain does not recognize a motor is plugged in. We switched wires and ports and those didn’t fix it.

This also happened with a standard motor on our drive train.

What is causing this, I’ve never had this happen before not even with a punchbar we built for change up which required way more power than either of these motors.

Are your floor tiles anti-static? You could be frying your motor ports by accident if static electricity builds up.

The motor could just be going bad or the anti-static theory @Cardboard_Box_Man but you may want to replace it if that is happening also take @DodgeDoodle_41442A advice for the v5 port protection as if bad ports are the actual cause then saving up is imperative.
