Hi,
Some time ago I bought one ldx-227 servo from Amazon for an Arduino project.
I recently tried it out using the standard Servo library but I incurred in a strange movement inconsistency.
It works fine for small intervals, however, if I try a bigger one, for example 180 degrees turn, it starts vibrating for about 20-30 seconds and then it suddenly stops and completes its rotation.

here is the code I'm using for the tests

#include <Servo.h>

Servo s1;

void setup() {
  s1.attach(8, 800, 2165);
  Serial.begin(9600);
}

void loop() {
  if (Serial.available()) {
    int pulse = Serial.parseInt();
    Serial.print("Ok ");
    Serial.println(pulse);
    s1.write(pulse);
  }
  
}

I tried different voltages, between 6 to 7.4 volts, without any luck.
I'm using an Arduino Mega 2560 and this power supply, rated for 10 Amps, configured to output its maximum.

Also, I saw a video on yt with an issue very similar to mine

This may be caused by current ,can you reset it?
If you connect to one servo. Please try to change the current to 1A.
