Be aware when you use external power supply on Merlin head...

Sad thing just happened minutes ago... I wrongly connect the external power supply to the Aux socket, not the DC socket because there's "IN" next to the Aux socket and "OUT" next to the DC socket. I thought IN means "DC IN" but it is not that way. I used wire connection so the damage was even bigger...

I follow the solution on that post: remove papywizard.conf and reinstall Papywizard (2.0.0), but the same issue occurs. Ok, I missed this: you removed the wrong papywizard.conf file! You should only remove the one in your home dir (~/.config/papywizard2/papywizard.conf)... I think you meant /usr/lo...

I installed it by following the instruction guide at http://trac.gbiloba.org/papywizard/wiki/InstallationGuide - $ python setup.py install --prefix=/usr/local I run the python codes with only the wire attached (i.e. no Merlin head attached to the wire), and I get this: Traceback (most recent call la...

Papywizard hangs at start (Linux, Debian)

Hi, I have the very same issue as this post (splash screen frozen at "Creating GUI", and main console frozen at "Connecting to real hardware...", as shown on the attached screenshot), except mine is on Debian Linux, not Mac OS: Papywizard hangs at start (Mac) http://www.autopano.net/forum/p43699-200...

Thanks Claude! It works!
It is almost imposible for me to return the product, so I am glad it does work.

I did read the manual, but I didn't expect that it would move so slow that I couldn't notice it... :)

[Merlin] Lights on wired control are ON, but it just don't move

After months of waiting, finally I got a chance to go to US and take the merlin head back. Mounted to the tripod, batteries installed, switch to ON, lights on the wired control are ON (buttons turn red when I press them). But the head just doesn't move. Maybe I haven't read the manual thoroughly, bu...

Claude, Yeah, I just wanted the wired cable as a backup solution. The cable is only $20 and with shipping, it came to only $23 in the US. There will also be a time in the future on a trip when my Nokia 770 fails, or it runs out of batteries, or there is too much bluetooth interference in an area......

I am curious, claudevh, where do you hide the 2 resistors for eb500-SER? I can't see them on the picture...

BTW, I find a local vender who sells eb500-SER, finally I find the solution. :)
