Not to worry.

Also, should you need them again, all versions of the firmware and config utility can be found on the Github page (https://github.com/TCWORLD/AstroEQ/commits/master/Downloads) in the commit history. I suppose I could update the version history on the downloads page to point the the corresponding commits.

Tom.

I'd try the Update Firmware button again, just to make sure that the firmware is up to date.

Hello Tom,

The AstroEQ is at the current Rev. Check Firmware says no updates. I am using the current debug.

What is troubling is the dead DEC. I thought I could use debug to see the communication between the OS and the driver. Nope, the debug version does not track success of driver talk. I am continuing investigating my problem.

Thank you for taking time to reply. I will post my reply when I find out the need.

Hi Henk,

V4.3 hardware is possibly the issue. In the later hardware versions there was a resistor added which is used for hand controller detection. Without this resistor the new firmware will not be able to run detection properly and incorrectly switch into push-button mode.

To remedy this, you'll need to add a 1K resistor pins 12 and 31 of the ATMega162 (IC1) which should allow the older hardware to support the newer firmware.
If your board has the ST-4 connector attached, you should also solder a wire between pin 12 of the ATMega162 and pin 1 of the ST-4 connector (the pin closest to JP2 on the board).

Kind Regards,
Tom.

Hi,

All of the output from the debug mode there is perfectly normal. Some of the calculations the config utility does require calculations in several unknows, so has to iterate through several values to try to find a good solution for your gear ratios. The fact that it says success at the end means that it found one that is acheivable.

As to why the config seems to be blank, that I'm not sure about.
Which version of the config utility are you using? (latest?). Is the firmware of the AstroEQ the latest version? Have you tried writing the configuraiton again?

Hello,

Using Debug, I find this problem with DC. With these repeated strings of failure, the last line says success. Funny. It must be a red herring.

Hello Tom

My DEC motor stopped running. What is strange is that I can swap drivers. The RA works but the DEC doesn't.

What preceptitated this, is me. I pulled the wrong PSU brick to power the AstroEQ while working USB HUB issues with RPI3B+. What should I check to ensure the function of the AstroEQ? Both drivers work in the RA port. DEC does not function.

Thank you

John
