pygamer A button failure

by plevin on Sat Jul 13, 2019 5:31 pm

I had a similar issue with the A button. In my case, I ran the Pygamer test sketch (pygamer_test.uf2), and it turns out that the A button appears to be constantly pressed - will not unpress:

Any suggestions on how to fix?

Weird. If you press the button, does it feel mechanically different? Compare to the B button for example. Like maybe something is mechanically broken internally on the button?

And if you press it over and over, does the circle ever go away?

No, doesn't feel any different, and the button doesn't seem to go away / unpress. It's a puzzle.
