This is a new EV3 Education Core Set. I have made a simple move forward command using the Lego Mindstorm EV3 Students Edition and downloaded it into the EV3 brick. However when i press the program in the brick, nothing happens, not even a loading screen. The i ls connected to the computer and the program is there, I just can't run it. How do I troubleshoot this?
I don't own the EV3, so unfortunately I can help you with first-hand experience. Here is a link to the Lego site containing videos with everything you should need to know to get started.
Based on my experience with Mindstorms NXT, if you are sure the program is done correctly then make sure you chose the correct ports that your motors are plugged into.
