My pololu 3pi does not start

I hadn’t used my pololu 3pi in almost 3 years and I decided to continue with a project i was working so I bought new batteries but when I tried to turn it on it did not work.


It is hard to know where to begin troubleshooting without more information. Can you tell me more about what you are trying to do and what you mean when you say it did not work? What kind of batteries are you using (NiMH or Alkaline)? Did you measure the voltage to make sure they are charged? What happens when you turn it on? Do you see any signs of life (LEDs, buzzer sounds, LCD, motor movement)? Also, what program is on the 3pi and are you able to program it?


I fixed it. It was just dust. Thanks


Is there a way I can send a program from the pololu avr back to atmel studio?

You cannot get your program back into Atmel Studio from the 3pi once it has been compiled and uploaded to the AVR.


ok. Thank you Brandon.
