I have new raven 2 that I just took out of the box and attached up a nine volt battery. When hooked to a 9 volt battery i get the normal power up red led on for a sec and then blue led flashes about once a second.
But then no start up or status beeps ever !
Any one seen this happen and have a idea whats happening ?
The raven will attach ok to the FIP program and talk. It will even run it;s simulated flight test mode and save data to it memory ok.
Attached is a screen grab of what FIP is seeing note the battery voltage is reporting as zero but it hooked to new 9 volt battery.that was checked with my fluke. I thinking that since the board thinks it has no voltage or low voltage on its battery supply so the start up beeps are disabled. But in reality that is not the case.
Looks to me i have a raven that has experienced infant mortality on power up.
I have used other Raven's and Parrots before with no such problems. Not at all a newbie to rocket electronics. Been using altimeters since they first came out.
Hope I can get this replaced with` a new one before LDRS. I tried to send this message directly to Adrian but his mail box is full.
