Adafruit moto shield and PING sensor - sensor stops working
I have assembled and soldered the adafruit motor shield from kit, and successfully got motors, servo and PING distance sensors working.. HOWEVER, once the motors run for about 10-20 seconds, the PING sensor appears to just power off.. The distance readings also stop showing accurate readings. It appears that running the motors causes the PING sensor to power off, because i can run tests without the motors running and the sensor works consistently and apparently indefinitely.
The solder job is over all pretty crappy but i dont see anything obvious. Before i start general clean up, wondering if the above behavior sounds indicative of something particular. thanks in advance for any help.
