Crickit Not Responding to Makecode

by sriggs on Sun Jun 10, 2018 1:08 am

I have two Crickit(s). When coding with motors, servos, one of the crickits do not seem to respond. I switched out 3 CPX with that particular Crickit, but it still does not respond to motors or servos. I've used the same power supply and CPX with the CricKit that does work, but the second crickit does not respond.

Post a photo showing the non-working one as you have it connected to the Circuit Playground and we'll see if we can spot anything. 800x600 images usually work best.

It looks like everything is in order, thank you.

Does the Crickit respond to any other kind of signals? Can you get the GPIO pins to toggle up and down, for instance?

No. It does not respond to the on board neopixel.

How have you connected power to the Crickit?

Ok, Yes, I have connected power to the CricKit. Upon power up the lights come on the CricKit(power led, on board NeoPixel and the led by the seesaw usb port)Then all the lights go out except for the power led.
When the CPX is connected to the Cricket, Everything above happens, On the CPX all the NeoPixels come on including the CPX power led. The CPX NeoPixels go out but the CPX power led stays on.
So, I know the at least the Crickit on board NeoPixel works, but through software, the onboard NeoPixel does not respond, in addition to the motors' etc. does not respond through code (makecode).

It sounds like something is wrong with the Crickit's microcontroller. Send a note containing a link to this page and your order number to support@adafruit.com. The folks there will get you a replacement.
