Ice Tube Clock Kit: no beep

by originalwarby on Mon Oct 20, 2014 4:56 pm

Hello,

I just started building the ice tube clock last night and after inserting the microprocessor and connecting the power, I get no sound from the piezo.

I verified the power supply voltage at 9 volts and the voltage regulator output at 5 volts.

What else should I check? Or replace?

It looks like everything is in the right place. Can you post a close-up shot of the soldering of the processor pins? It may just be the lighting in the photo, but a couple look a little questionable.

OK, I went over every pin and still no joy. Zoomed in photo:

Thanks for the close-up. That is some fine looking soldering there!

I can't see anything wrong with your circuit so far. Let's try replacing the processor. Please contact support@adafruit.com with a link to this thread to arrange it.
