Arduino can not find BME280

by timax on Fri Jun 14, 2019 2:55 am

Hi,

I'm using the BME280 and the test programm can not found the sensor when i am using the i2c interface. If i am using spi i will just see the temperature, the pressure and the altitude, but not the humidity.
Had anybody this problem too or could help me?

Tim

My soldering is good. There must be another problem maybe in the lib.

Run the i2c scanner program and post the results:

The I2C scanner runs and I get the address 0x76.

That's a good sign. Please post the photos as requested, so we can see the rest of your system.

That doesn't appear to be one of our boards.

That's correct, but i am using your software which must work with this sensor.
