CCS811: 'Please check your wiring' Error Message

by draganj98 on Sat Sep 07, 2019 5:20 pm

I keep getting the same error message but I connected my CCS811 to my arduino how it said on https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-ccs ... iring-test. Is there anything wrong with my wiring?

Hi @draganj98,

You will need to solder the CCS811 headers to your board before continuing. I would also suggest using the correct positive and negative markings on the breadboard rails to reduce confusion. Please let me know if this helps and if I can be of anymore assistance.

Thank you. I soldered it and I'm not getting the same error anymore, now it just says 'CCS811 test' in the serial console.

Nice work. Glad to see some data come through the console.

1) Could you send me a fresh picture of the wiring. Please fix the ground and negative rails on the breadboard so we don't confuse other forum users looking at this in the future.

2) What is your current baud rate set to on the Arduino Serial console?

3) Have you made any modifications to the example CCS811_test code?

The serial console's baud rate is at 9600 and I have not made any adjustments to the CCS811_test code.

Your bread board has split power rails. Jumper them or move wire(s).
