Tried 3 "AA" batteries-unit would not work.

by TurboTravis on Sat Feb 27, 2016 1:14 pm

I built a battery holder that holds 3 "AA" batteries and verified the voltage (4.8v). Hooked it to the unit and the green LED would just illuminate and go off (would not go thru the normal cycle). I looked at the output led's thru a camera and they were not working. Hooked it back up to the normal 2 battery holder and it worked fine again. Any ideas?
