Code not registering

by Acgrigores on Fri May 14, 2021 7:45 pm

I tried to use the Chameleon Scarf code, and I uploaded it via Arduino, but my project just doesn't seem to be following the code. The lights are turning on pretty randomly and the colors of the lights are all different. I've tried re-uploading the code as well as restarting it, but that doesn't seem to do anything. How can I fix this?

Does the string of NeoPixels work correctly with other demos code?

No, it seems to do the same thing no matter what the code is.

The wiring would be the next thing I'd check. If all the pixels are on, then power and ground seem ok. Have a close look at the data line wiring. Check that it flows from the Flora to the Din of the first, then its Dout to the Din of the next, etc. Make sure all those connections are good.
