LED Board only using every 2 rows

by UnloosedCake on Wed Dec 30, 2020 9:30 pm

Purchased an LED Board and Pi bonnet and when I set them up only every two rows are being lit up - see photo. Any suggestions?

Hey, sorry for missing this. Can you link to the specific LED panel you have as a start.

Thanks. That combo should be fine. So maybe something software related.

What model Pi are you using?

What OS image did you start with?

When you ran the installs script:

Did you select the "quality" or "convenience" option?

I have a pi4 made by Canakit (8GB) https://www.canakit.com/raspberry-pi-4-starter-kit.html that I booted with the default raspbian OS. I chose convenience during the install because of the sound driver thing

That should also all be OK.

What's the full command line you are using to run the example above?
