Smoking Cortex!! Plus more...

Ok, so my brand new cortex just started smoking my the motor ports, and now port 1 won’t work. (one of them hardly gives any power). I just tried them with several motors, and the original motor didn’t have a short, or was under any extreme load. What should I do?

Glaz,

This is very strange, usually the source of the problem is a short on the motor.
