Music Maker stopped playing sound

by epsilon_experience on Mon Jul 17, 2017 9:36 am

Hi folks,

I have 9 feather 32a4 with a music maker wing on top of each other, and the same SD card with the same MP3 on it.
On two of them, I can't get any sound now, I worked before but not anymore.
I see the feather on the com port, I can send the sketch to it, it runs, the serial monitor receive debug data but there isn't any sound. Even the :
musicPlayer.sineTest(0x44, 500);
does not work.
More over, when I use the feather_player sample, the void loop() function is never reached

I think either there a problem with the reset of Timer0 or I just killed my VS1053.

Have you any clue ?

Regards,
Florent Steiner

Are these the amplifier versions of the Music Maker?

If you swap the wings to different feathers, do they start to work?

Can you post the complete serial monitor trace?

How do you know that the sketch isn't getting to loop()?

Also, please post pictures of your soldering on the feathers and featherwings.

The music makers I have have not the amplificator.

The more I try things the more they stop working :(

Here's the monitor trace :
<<


Adafruit VS1053 Feather Test
VS1053 found
SD OK!
SYSTEM~1/
INDEXE~1 76
FANFARE.MP3 190615
RICKROLL.MP3 339480
SON_I9.MP3 112715
TRACK001.MP3 1281715
TRACK002.MP3 5642345
Playing full track 001
Playing track 002
.Done playing music

>>
There is a big delay beetween "Playing full track 001" and "Playing full track 001" (the exact time of the first MP3) and a delay of the exact size of the second MP3 beetween "Playing track 002" and ".Done playing music". So it seems that the sound is played but I hear nothing. Moreover in the sample, in the loop() you have an Serial.print("."); so it should read :
.........................[...]..................Done playing music

Reagarding soldering, I use header kit and stacking header :
