Servos Behaving Badly

Hi all,

I was really excited about making a stupid trick game this week. Unfortunately I didn’t get that far. I could not get my servo to behave. What a frustrating weekend (I almost put my Arduino in the freezer overnight)…

Heres what I tried:

1) Servo Demo with Potentiometer (code from Examples> Arduino) (then 2 codes from the web that still produced no results)

Produced no values in serial print to indicate the potentiometer was working (Also tried putting in a photoresistor, did not seem to do anything either)

Servo_1

2) Servo Arduino Example Mood Indicator (code from Starter Kit > Servo Mood)

Got a response from serial print but still couldn’t control my Servo

Servo_2

3) Button Controlled

Could get this to work, but adding another button didn’t work.  (note, not my code, lost the original source but I can find it again!)

4) Simple Rotations

Worked, but odd clicking sounds and humming made me wonder if there is a problem with the Servo

Servo_Rotate

Eventually I just figured I would bring it in and switch to playing with the LED light instead.

Color_LED

(Still determined to make a stupid trick though!)
