Motor shield is not working when I use an IR receiver. I tried connecting the ir receiver in different analog pins but it didn't work. I guess it's due to some error in my code but unable to figure out.

  • Is the motor using pin 1? – Delta_G Jul 21 at 20:01
  • Yes I've connected the motor to pin1 also. I tried running the motor using a separate code and its working fine. @Delta_G – Reghunaath A A Jul 21 at 20:05

    That seems unlikely but if true explains your problem. If it is using pin 0 or 1 then you can’t use Serial. What motor shield do you have exactly? Do you have a link? – Delta_G Jul 21 at 23:13

    It's a normal adafruit motor shield learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-motor-shield – Reghunaath A A Jul 22 at 13:54

    Are you sure it's the V1 and not the V2? – Delta_G Jul 22 at 14:45
