Monochron Clock Kit Fails Beep Test

by josephwong on Tue Oct 20, 2015 6:33 pm

I received the Monochron clock kit as a gift few week ago. I followed the instructions on Adafruit.com website and it failed the second test (no beep with power on).
The output on the 78L05 is 5V and ATMEGA pin 7 has 5V as well. I believed the processor was either malfunction or did not flash with the firmware successfully from the factory.

Could you send me a replacement processor ASAP?

Please post some photos of the front and back of the board showing your assembly so-far.

Thanks for the quick reply.

This is the front of the board.

I have inserted all the components and tested it again. There is still no Beep and the LED works.
I have not connected the display to the board yet.

Very nice soldering job :)

Since the assembly looks fine, I would agree with your missing firmware theory. Please contact support@adafruit.com with a link to this thread and we can send you a replacement.
