Micro Servo Burnt Out

by rahatmaini on Sun Feb 24, 2013 7:37 pm

I accidentally supplied Ground to power and power to Ground to my Micro Servo. Is there any way to fix this that is not relatively complex?

I assume from the question that it does not work if the correct connections are supplied? The servo connector is cleverly designed so that even if you connect in in reverse (Gnd->Signal, VCC->VCC, Signal->GND), no damage will occur. I haven't experienced a Gnd->VCC/VCC->Gnd connection. But I don't expect it would be healthy for the servo control circuit. :(
