I have a question regarding some none working power-functions. The situation is as following:
1 IR receiver:
Connection 1: 1x Servo
Connection 2: 2x L motor.
The IR receiver is connected to the battery box, with on top of that a power functions control switch (connecting to a M motor). On top of the control switch connector is a LED connector.
Now, the following works: LED, Control Switch + M motor and then the problem shows up:
Only the L motor connected "closest to the base of the IR receiver" works.
If motor 1 is "on the bottom" that one works. If motor 2 is on the bottom, that one works.
Both at the same time does NOT work.
It seems to me that the problem lies either in the IR receiver or in the power consumption of the 2 L motors.
However; I find this somewhat strange since it's Lego's own set up and other (on youtube) seem not to have any problems with it ... so I am a bit puzzled...
Can anybody help me understand and solve this?
