Lumen Lights Flickering


#1

Hello!

We’re having an issue with the Heavy Configuration. When the mode is at Depth Hold/ Stabilize and it’s around 3m or deeper, the lumen lights start to flicker continuously even if it was not turned on using the controls. When I change the mode to Manual, or disarm the motors, the lights would work as expected.

Has anyone experienced this before? Any tips on how to detect the root cause?

Thanks!

Hello,

Can you give a picture of your connections to the pixhawk and screen grab of the configurations?

Cheers,
Etienne

Hello again,

a bit of a coincidence, someone else posted about this on the bR forum:

Let me know if this helps. If you have a defective thruster I can order a replacement at the same time as your o-rings and spool.

Cheers,
E.

Hi!

Just checked out all the thrusters using the troubleshooting guide linked above. Found one thruster that has a short.

So I guess this is the root cause of the flickering light.

Thanks for the help! And yes, we need a replacement for this. :slight_smile:

Great job Angelyn!

I will order a replacement (under warranty) unit for you.
