Hey so recently my team competed in a tournament in which we had multiple issues regarding our brain and controller.
A few days ago, we tried coding autonomous but no autonomous code would run and we would keep getting jumptable errors. I updated the firmware on the brain and this seemed to fix our issues. I also updated the radio and controller firmware too. Before this firmware fix we were also getting other issues like our flywheel motors constantly changing speeds for no reason, if we pressed Y on our controller our whole code would freeze, and in general inputs and motors would just often stop working intermittently.
But during yesterday’s tournament we kept getting more errors despite having updated the firmware. During matches our whole code would freeze up again, motors not spinning when they should have (one time our flywheel just didn’t turn on despite the motors being plugged in and recognized). At one point our pneumatics just completely stopped working too and only after a power cycle did they work like normal again. Then our controller kept freezing, not charging, struggling to keep a charge, turning off randomly and having flickering artifacts on the screen.
We have tested with multiple batteries & cables, still the same issues. The only overheating issues we’ve had is one of our flywheel motors hitting level 1 overheating temperature but it barely happens.
To me these both just seem like hardware issues now, but I would like to know if there are any other ways/things I should troubleshoot software or hardware wise to fix things.
