Probe Staging not working in Space?

Question

I have successfully gotten a probe into orbit but now the staging does not seem to be working. the rockomax 24-77 are not responding to thurst imputs and they are attached to a FL-T200 Fuel Tank with more than enough fuel. Further more the seperation stage is not functioning.

What did I do wrong?

How much power does the probe have available? (If it doesn't have any, you may want to bring an RTG or some solar panels next time)

Picture please, although I bet £100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 you forgot to put batteries or solar panels on.

You may have to use the bracket keys to switch vessels temporarily– I noticed that I had some control issues after docking two probes together. However, pictures would help confirm or deny the fact that it was a lack of power.

Haha happened to me too when I was new to the game. The thing is that the engines produce enough electrical power for the probe to run during ascent but in orbit, your engines don't run... :P

I actually once had a probe die on the launchpad because I was too busy fiddling with the display settings on a mod and had forgotten to use any batteries, solar panels, or launch clamps. So yeah, we've all done something like that at least once.

I remember the first time I did this, I forgot to open the solar panels on an orbital satellite.

I had to rendezvous with it and get a Kerbal out to open them manually.

Changed to Answered.
