Re: New VL53L0X not working

Hi I'm having an issue with one of 2 new sensors. One works but when I unplug it and try the other sensor it doesn't show up.

Using the Adafruit vl53l0x example code, one works and the other gives me these error messages:

Arduino: 1.8.9 (Windows Store 1.8.21.0) (Windows 10), Board: "Arduino/Genuino Uno"

Sketch uses 17108 bytes (53%) of program storage space. Maximum is 32256 bytes.
Global variables use 1236 bytes (60%) of dynamic memory, leaving 812 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 2048 bytes.
avrdude: ser_open(): can't open device "\\.\COM6": The system cannot find the file specified.


Problem uploading to board. See http://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Troubleshooting#upload for suggestions.

I've tried re-soldering the board to see if that's the issue but had no luck.

Hope it's okay to jump in on this post but I couldn't seem to start a new one. Do you have any suggestions? All I can think is that the board may be faulty.

Thanks!

The error says it can't communicate with the Uno. if you remove the VL53L)X does it upload?

Yes it uploads fine without this particular vl53l0x or anything else plugged in. As mentioned above, it works fine with another vl53l0x that I have (I'm hoping to use them together), it's just this one that I can't seem to get any response from.
