PyBadge LC not working

by jkurleto on Wed Feb 05, 2020 3:56 pm

Hi,

Ok, so I post here about a defective item? I have a set of 11 PyBadge LCs. One appears to be defective - the CHG light blinks (even with no battery, as they all do), but no other sign of life: no screen activity, no RGB LED, no USB drive pops up, resetting or turning on and off does not help. I'm using the same USB cable as I have for the other 10 with no problems. Thanks!

Please verify that double-tapping reset does not get you to the bootloader. You can try the same on one of the other PyBadge LCs to verify that you're able to get into the bootloader on another board. The bootloader should show up as a drive called something like BADGEBOOT. As well, if you have a lipoly battery sitting around (Adafruit preferred as the polarity is guaranteed to be proper), please try plugging it in to see if you get any change in behavior with a battery connected. Thanks!
