CLUE just showing black screen! Where to start?

by Dicsoft on Sat Mar 14, 2020 10:56 am

Hello folks,
today I unboxed my brand-new CLUE controller board, but if I power it up the only thing is shown is a black screen and
on the backside a small red flashing LED and also the Neopixel LED steady red!
What are the next steps to get this unit started?
Any buttons I have to press?

Thanks for your support!

Read through https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-clue in detail if you haven't yet.

My next step would be to put a fresh version of CircuitPython (and libraries!) on it, see https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-clue/circuitpython.

See what happens then.

There's also a quick and simple hardware test UF2 available here:
