    I am having problem with the motor I use with the L293 motor driver.The motor will only continue to turn in a direction when i will let my finger turn it once, it will then continue to turn.Anyone please help me with this problem.
    Is it because of the motor i use or in the circuit itself in the L293 driver. My circuit is just simple, I dont use any resistor, capacitor or diode in my circuit.

    Post your circuit schematic. What type of motor is it?
