Unable to use cricket to power servo, cannot update firmware

by aurashb on Fri Aug 31, 2018 1:06 pm

Hello,

We've been trying to do some of the projects with the Cricket and adabox (order# 1775811) and it appears our Cricket does not work.

When following this page:
https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-cri ... ur-crickit

We cannot get any power to the cricket using usb directly to a macbook pro, or even if I plug it in to an outlet. The cricket is on (switch is on) and I've double clicked the reset button but the LED's near the seesaw connector never light and the device never shows up on the laptop.

If we power with the battery connector, the device does get power but we never see the device show on the macbook even though its connected to the seesaw connector via usb. It does seem to be able to get power to the circuit playground express, the cricket board itself doesn't seem to work. We can't power servo motors nor can we update the firmware.

Is there something else we can do? We've followed all of the instructions on cricket as well as the adabox 008 but nothing seems to help.

hiya, we've moved this to the Adabox forum :)

when you plug in 5V power to the Crickit, do you see the LEDs near the seesaw USB connector light up at all?

No if I connect 5v power, the LED's near the seesaw connector do not light up.

Any feedback here? Is this the wrong forum for this type of support?
