Neopixel Sound Reactive Peace Pendent

by jennytorino on Sun May 13, 2018 10:46 pm

I built the neopixel sound reactive pendent in the tutorial using the 12 Neopixel ring and Gemma M0. I loaded the code onto the Gemma using Circuit Python and the ring does react to sound, but when it is silent it never shuts completely off. At the most the lights only go off halfway around the ring. Is there something I need to adjust with the code to fix this?

Also, when recharging the lipoly battery using the miniusb recharger the charger light never goes from red to blue indicating a charged battery. It gives a red light when charging and then eventually the light shuts off. Any ideas as to why this could be happening?

Thanks in advance for your help.
Jenny

It sounds like you're having an issue on both ends. They don't all turn off when silent. And the most you can get to light up is only half of the pixels. How many are on when silent?

the charger light never goes from red to blue indicating a charged battery.

It's suppose to go green when charging is complete:

But the red light turning off is also an indication that charging is complete. Does it seem like the battery is at least charging?

It might help to see your build. Can you post a photo showing how everything is connected.

I can get the LEDS to light up around the entire ring with loud sounds, but in silence only half the LEDS will turn off. Half the the ring will stay lit in silence.

The battery light will be red when charging and then shuts off (instead of giving a green light). It does charge though because it ran out of power, I charged it, and it worked.

I've passed this on to the guide author. It may be something with the current version of the code.
