MiniPOV4 Not Turning On

by GoodmanDurnik on Sat Aug 08, 2020 12:35 am

I recently purchased 2 miniPOV4 kits to build with my son, and neither of them are lighting up after the build.

I’m including images from my build since the soldering is cleaner, but I did try both of the chips in my board.

I went through my solder work and they seem to be correct
I’m getting voltage in Pin 7 when the battery pack is turned on

I also tried plugging the USB port into several computers while the switch was on with no luck. On my Windows 10 surface with the drivers installed it says the drive couldn’t be recognized, and on the two MacBooks I tried it never registered as a drive.
