Another Adabox 007 Gemma MO Request for help

by TopherGopher on Sun May 13, 2018 12:59 am

I'm trying to get the UV ink reader file on my Gemma MO, but the .uf2 file never seems to overwrite what is on the board. I've double clicked on the board button, but the red light never pulses red. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Does the Gemma show up as a small USB drive when you connect it to your computer?

It does. I'm able to get it into GEMMABOOT as a drive. I'm also able to see the drive listed as CIRCUITPY when I first plug it in and can adjust the Main.py code. This will work for me, I was just hoping to use the Make Code uf2 file.

I've tried multiple uf2 files, one of which was just a simple blink sketch, but it didn't work either. I'll run through some more tests to see if there is an issue with the capacitive pad, the outputs, or something else.

After more tests, it appears the board is working perfectly even with Make Code. The IR light, on the other hand, is not.
I guess I'll just have to add that to my next order.

Post a photo showing how you have the UV LED connected to the Gemma. 800x600 images usually work best.

I was able to get it working. Typical user error. Thanks for the help Mike.

Nah.. mistakes happen all the time.

The idea that someone has an idea, sits down and builds it, and everything works on the first try is a myth. Most projects only work because the builder ran out of ways to fail.

Thing is, we get as many one-more-chances as we're willing to take. The more we can eliminate the (unproductive) stigma associated with mistakes and failure, the healthier we'll all be as Makers.

Glad to hear you got things working. Happy hacking!
