left servo accidentally pushed back

Hi, my daughter accidentally pulled back the left arm and I could hear the left arm servo go 'click'. I had to gently move it back in to place. Now when Marty is powered on; calibrated and I hear the left servo motor.<br> Will I do any damage if I try and twist the left arm servo back?

Hello,

Glad you got the replacement motor - can you describe what problems you're having in more detail?

There are two different types of servo in Marty: - 4 x strong servo: the hips and sideways knee movements - 5 x normal servo: leg twist, arms, eyes

Can you advise of the left ARM servo is the same as the left LEG server?

Hi, I have purchased, received and installed the new part and so far Marty's arm is OK. I'm just having random problems with calibration.

Hi Sandy, did you receive my mp4 movies ? I sent them directly to your email address.

The arm still functions just that there is a "motor noise" which is loud if the room is quiet. I was only wondering if I need to undo the physical pull .... It maybe better to capture this on video and send it to you. I'll do this and put it on my dropbox site.

Hi there,

Can you describe what happens to the servo when it's powered on in a little more detail? If it has broken then please do send an e-mail to support@robotical.io and we'll see what we can do!
