RTC DS3231

by LitingWolf on Fri Oct 23, 2020 10:37 pm

so I'm wondering i had a ds3231 and it stopped working idk why but it stopped detecting the rtc I got another rtc that worked then later it stopped working any idea why?
I'm thinking of making one of my own due to it would work more into my project for when i get a board it would be an rtc built in instead of having a separate one

I imagine that you have something like this in your setup:
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
void setup() {
  delay(1000);
  Serial.begin(115200);
  while (!Serial);  // wait for serial port to connect. Needed for native USB


You need to make sure that the serial speed, in this case 115,200 baud (but could be different), is matched by the speed set on the serial monitor panel. You see this setting to the bottom right of the serial monitor panel.

When you need assistance it is always a good idea to specify exactly what components you are using and to quote your code that is having the problem. Use the [code] button when posting and paste your code between the two code tags.
