  1. Hello all, I am working on my engineering project which requires to drive two stepper motors. For this purpose I use 2 ucn5804 's. I am using a battery eliminator for the +12v supply to the motors, and I'm using used 9v batteries to supply the +5v for the IC's. Everything was fine until awhile ago. The motors stopped working or behaved erratically. It was wierd. Upon investigation, it seemed that the 9v batteries were drained. I tried replacing them with new ones, but the motors don't respond. However when I use a battrery which is half drained, it responds. Very confusing. ??? Also I am using a common ground for the 9v(UCN5804), battery eliminator, and the parallel port control. Any ideas? Thanks in advance. the_warper
