I am using 2two PWM outputs from a netduinoNetduino 2 to control 2two servos. One of the PWM pins workworks perfectly fine but the other doesn't work until I have touched it with an oscope probe. The probe doesn't need to remain connected or even grounded. Just a small tap gets it running.

I removed the pin headers so I could directly solder the wires to the PCB so perhaps I damaged something? It's strange because everything works fine after I tap the connection with the probe. Both servos are powered and grounded from the same rails.

Any ideas/solutions?

PWM only works after touched with oscillicope probe
