Power adapter not working

by montelikestech on Sun Aug 01, 2021 11:35 pm

I recently ordered an Adafruit METRO and a 9 VDC 1000mA regulated switching power adapter to power it. I plugged in the power adapter and plugged the board into my computer. When I plugged it into my computer, the board powered up and I was able to run code on it. When I unplugged the USB, the board lost power, even though it was still plugged in with the power adapter. If you need it, my order ID is 2621302-1749305573.
Thanks,
Ryan

All of the UNO footprint Metro boards have an on/off switch that controls power from the barrel connector. Make sure it's switch top "on".
