I have finally got time to play with by brickpi but it doesnt appear to be working, as far as I can see.
I have followed the steps on how to set everything up and then opened a REPL to see if I could get a motor to move. I just couldn’t!
Below is what I put and the output. I have 2 motors and neither of them are working. I don’t have anymore motors to try.
How can I see if the board is working or if it is the motors.
