New build - opto sensors

Post by nosomis »

Hi,
Just finished my felix 2.0 build.
Everything seems to be ok but the opto sensors dont work.
The green led lights are on but do not switch off when I put something in the groove.
Wired exactly as instructions indicate.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks

have you tried to put black tape or paint on the blade,
because the plastic itself can let some light go through it.

Thanks for tyour reply.
Yes, I've tried everything.
They have good power across red and black wires 6.6V volts and the green led in on.
