Power to Open ROV controller board

The ROV does not start up when battery and usb connected. I measure 3.5 V at pins 4/5 and 6/7 of the 25 pin connector when disconnected, but the voltage arriving at the computer board pins P9: 1/3 has dropped to about 0.1 V, even with the computer off the board.

I have disconnected everything disconnectable on the controller board, but no change. Nothing seems to be gettin hot.

Any ideas?

check your wiring to the motors. DID YOU MIX UP THE RED WIRES THAT CONNECT TO THE MOTOR WITHTHE SOLID ORANGE WIRE THAT GOES TO THE BATTERY?

I recommend checking the colors of your wires as some colors can be pretty close if you are under cool blue led lights or under an incandescent light. Your best bet? A torchlight.
