32x32 RGB LED Matrix

by cbh1608 on Fri Feb 08, 2019 5:05 pm

I have tried following almost very guide on the web, but i still can't get my matrix to even turn on a single LED.
If i only connect the power and nothing else, LEDs are flashing like crasy in all colors.

I use the RGB + RTC HAT and Raspberry pi 3 model B rev 1.2

I would love if someone could help me get going in the right direction

The display needs a data signal to actually show things on the LEDs. Just power is not enough. You'll need to continue hooking it up per the guide:

I figured out that the HAT doesn’t work and connected the matrix directly to the Pi..

The matrix now works
