Accel and Gyro Not Working (all zeros)

by BD13 on Tue Jul 07, 2020 11:27 pm

I just got my CLUE and powered it on (via USB) to give it a first go. All the sensors displayed on the preloaded test script seem to be working fine (they display changing values, haven't checked accuracy). The big issue is that the gyro and accel display zeros across the board. LSM6DS33 displays on the list of sensors, so I would imagine that implies that the chip is visible and doing some basic coms at the very least. The fact that both the gyro and accel display full zeros and that they are both on the same chip seems to imply that the LSM6DS33 is faulty. I don't know another way to read this situation. Seems like a replacement board is in order.

yeah there's a weird reason for this - the accelerometers SOMETIMES don't like the way we reset them. we fixed the code but all the stock CLUE's were preprogrammed

try this UF2, its the updated test
https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-clue/arduino-test
does that help?

Yeah, that worked! Thanks for the help. I also see that you updated the official guide - good call.
