PIOLED 128x32 not being detected

I've searched around on this forum and other places for similar issues, but nothing has helped so far.

I have a Raspberry Pi Zero W and I bought the Adafruit PIOLED 128x32. I have header pins on the pi and I have the PIOLED plugged into (not soldered) the first 6 pins exactly as shown in the promotional images, like this:

I followed the two guides https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-pio ... y-pi/usage and https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruits-ra ... guring-i2c

Running sudo i2cdetect -y 1 gives me nothing, and running the stats.py example script produces I/O errors.

Have i missed something or done something wrong? I've seen other forum posts request to see the underside of the PIOLED in case the connections are bad, so here's that image.

It's now been a few weeks with no replies... does anyone know what is up with this? I'm beginning to think I may have a defective part here. I'd love to be able to confirm that though.

Wow.. I apologize for our missing your original post. I'm not sure how that happened.

Send a note containing a link to this thread and your order number to support@adafruit.com. The folks there will get you a new PiOLED.
