I just began assembly of my newly received GoPiGo kit and have come across a potential problem. I am in the step “9. Attach Connect Power and Test” from the “Assemble the GoPiGo” web page. After using the power adapter to connect the battery box with 8 AA batteries to the circuit board, I flip the switch to ON. The LED only then turns on if I also push down gently on the power switch, pressing it towards the rest of the circuit board. As soon as I release the switch, keeping it in the ON position, the LED turns off.
I’m guessing that there is a loose connection somewhere in the switch, and that I’m closing that connection when I push down. Is this going to be problem for more than just the LED? Do I need to have my circuit board replaced?
Thanks in advance for your help.
