Can you upload some photos of your setup?


I have updated the post to show the pictures.
Everything looks fine. Does the robot keep the balance? The only problem is that you can not control it from the smartphone? Which one are you using iOS or Android? If Android, which version?

The motors don’t turn even with the program. I only tried to use the phone (an iPhone) to make sure it wasn’t a problem with the program

Could it be a hardware issue?

It could be, but not likely. Both motors failing at the same time? And the stepper motor driving is the less complex and more reliable part of the robot.
Have you placed the heatsink on top of the stepper motor drivers? if so, remove then and try again.

What batteries are you using? maybe the robot is under-powered.

alternatively, we can take a look at the robot for you. You just need to send the electronics back to us. We will check it for free. If everything is fine, we will send it back to you just for the shipping cost. If not, we will contact you regarding the problem.
