circuit playground express capacitive touch problem and circ

by YoyoBe21 on Wed Sep 15, 2021 10:16 am

hi, I recently bought a circuit playground express and a circuit playground bluefruit and got them two days ago, my bluefruit won't upload the code that i'm giving him and one of the capacitive touch pads on the express doesn't work (when I open the serial plotter to see the readings from him I get nothing it doesn't even responds).

What was the code you were using and what output does it give when uploading? Do you have anything connected to the playgrounds?

For the bluefruit I tried the simple blink example and the error message I get is this: No device found on COM5
An error occurred while uploading the sketch

And in the express one I don't get an error message I simply can't get any readings from the pad.

The arduino software doesn't recognize the circuit playground bluefruit device.

Thanks but i've already done that, but I can't find the bluefruit in the board manager, is there another board package that I need to download.

oh never mind I managed to fix the problem with the bluefruit, now all that remains is the capacitive touch pad on the express that isn't working, any suggestions?
