DotStar Pi Painter

by REV_M on Sat Oct 27, 2018 9:43 am


I am tying to get this project working and having issues with getting it to GO.

I am using a Pi 3 B+
Test program works and RGB is ordered correctly.
I am at the very last stage and the "next" "prev image" buttons works as well as the "faster", "slower" ones.
The GO button when pressed causes the program to lock and all other buttons no longer function.
i have re mapped two of the buttons. 4 to 22 and the previous "GO" button functions correctly and the remapped "GO" caused the same issue.
i have reduced the amps to 100, 100 for one test. no improvement. This was reversed.
I ran with independent batteries
Without strip connected and the program freezes.

The only element that i could not work out was the following line with the "Load Kernel module by default"

(Under “Advanced Options,” enable SPI and load kernel module by default)
