I have a Tiny Zero and I've gotten the "blink" example to work so I know the board is responding fine, but when I try to connect with the serial monitor I do not see any output.  I'm using the ASCIITable example and I expect to see output in the Serial Monitor but the screen stays blank.  I also tried Tera Term.

The COM port associated with the Tiny Zero is showing up in both the Arduino IDE and Tera Term so I'm sure the device is connected.

What am I missing?

I'd like to put my tinyzero and associated stack of boards in a project box and have a switch on the box to turn the device on and off.  Is there any part I can order for this?

Ok I solved the problem by connecting the servo to Vcc.  I guess the 5V terminal is for USB power only.

I have a Tinyduino starter kit with the PROTO TERMINAL BLOCKS TINYSHIELD.

I have a servo hooked up to pin 9 via a screw terminal.  I have the red wire and the black wire in 5V and GND, respectively.

I am using the "Sweep" example.

When I connect the USB cable the program runs correctly.  The servo moves.  When I disconnect the cable and run off of the lithium battery the servo does not move.

My board works fine when I'm using the "Blink" example, regardless of whether the USB cable is connected or not.  So I know the board can work off of the lithium battery.

Any thoughts on what I need to do to get a servo to respond from the lithium polymer cell?
