No Response From Joy Bonnet

by talofaholbrook on Thu Oct 28, 2021 12:39 am

I bought the Joy Bonnet Pack without Soldering - Includes Pi Zero WH PID: 4085 and got RetroPie running. When RetroPie boots up it prompts that there's no controller plugged in. The Joy Bonnet is clearly plugged in and connected. No amount of button pressing of the Joy Bonnet results in a response like a controller is plugged in. Anything to try? I just barely purchased it. Thanks

Okay, I ran through the guide and got it all updated and installed. (see picture) and I'm still not seeing any controller detected when emulation station boots up.

Say Yes to reboot. After reboot, go into RetroPie MENU to configure:

Okay, I went through the steps and I'm still not able to detect a gamepad (See Picture attached ...5656.jpg). No matter how many buttons I hold on the joy bonnet it doesn't move on to the configure button step where i can configure AB XY Up Down Left Right etc.

When just the joy bonnet is plugged in I see the welcome screen with no gamepads detected. (See picture attached ...5703.jpg)

Thanks for your help!

First off, thanks so much for your help on this.

I'm still not seeing a controller detected pressing or holding buttons.

Here's what I did just a few minutes ago.

Reloaded RetroPie via the Pi Imager program.
Connected to WiFi
Ran the following in order

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
cd ~
sudo apt-get install python3-pip
sudo pip3 install --upgrade adafruit-python-shell
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/adafruit/Raspberry-Pi-Installer-Scripts/master/joy-bonnet.py
sudo python3 joy-bonnet.py


Rebooted
Went to settings and configure input
Pressed a button on the joy bonnet
held a button on the joy bonnet

No Response from the Joy Bonnet

at the command line - if you press buttons on the joy bonnet do you get any keypresses coming out?
can you also check the output if you run this at the command line:

cd /boot
python3 joyBonnet.py

we will replace the bonnet if its bad, but its hard to tell if its a software thing or a hardware thing!

Oh for sure, I totally get it. I'll try these things in a bit and report back.

Try running it with sudo. Looks like a permission error trying to access /dev/uinput.
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
sudo python3 joyBonnet.py
