Ez-b Popped A Regulator Need To Know Which One To Buy.

Assistance Requested

Help Anthony with their question and receive $10 of EZ-Credit to get more robots and parts from our store. The following information was provided about their previous efforts searching tutorials for a resolution.

Anthony claims to have checked these sources:

Well it had to happen when i was all suped up about my 3d printer. talk about a buzz kill. anyway i was working with the ez-b last night and a wire from another project must of touch the ez-b where the regulator/heatsink is and POP! freaked me out. i thought i fried the ez-b but it was the regulator only that poped. i need to know the make and model of the regulator so i can replace and install. the ez-b is working fine but wont give any voltage to the servos. i can run them on with the external power source. any help will be appreciated, a link to where to buy or if radio shack carries it. thanks in advance.

I have found a few conversations, tutorials and activities that may help with your question. Take a look at these links. I've sorted them by what I believe to be most relevant but that is not always the case as I'm still learning.

Also, consider reviewing the Learn section for informative lessons and activities. Check it out!

I too faced the same problem... My regulator that supplies voltage to servos LM1084 popped up and now I am going to replace it...


I ordered 10 of them for the EZ-B boards (5) I have from They are $2.02 plus $5 USPS shipping when you order 10. If just ordering 1 the price goes up to $2.47.
