Defective product: LEDs displaying wrong colors

by nquinones on Tue Apr 07, 2020 9:02 pm

I just bought a Circuit Playground Express. I opened it for the first time and plugged it to my computer and I noticed in the initial routine one LED was not on, and two had weird patterns. I quickly used makecode to make them all blink red, green and blue, to check. Strangely, the three last ones are not in sync with the rest. Also the 6th one blinks fainter than the rest. I just opened it and this happened. It seems as if it has a wiring issue or something.

That's weird. Clearly red, green, and blue component LEDs are working. The one dimmer one is odd as well.

Can you run some of the CircuitPlayground express NeoPIxel examples in CircuitPython? Maybe: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-circuit-playground-express/circuitpython-neopixel
