Re: LCD stopped working while programming

I have had that a few times myself with my LCD shields. I have just got used to removing the shield before flashing. I believe it has something to do with the the power draw on my crappy little laptop. Maybe if the Arduino was powered externally, as well as having the USB to flash, that it would be ...

Re: It's December, time to spice up the Christmas lights!

I would have to assume that if is dumping that out in a serial monitor, that perhaps your controller is faulty, of a library thats being used is a bit wonky. I am no coding genius, but you should start eliminating things first. I don't have any experience with the nodemcu boards sorry. Maye hit this...

Re: dmd stops refreshing after third image

Hi again JediHermit, Unfortunately I am not near a computer that I am able to install the Arduino compiler on (corporate machines with Digital Guardian enabled), so I can only offer typo's where I see them I guess. if (score == 3) {three(); } And if (score == 10) {ten(); } delay (5000); {win(); } Th...

Re: wireless sketch uploading

Hi ledsarecool, If you are still looking around at playing with WiFi uploading capable Arduino's, then take a look at the Spark team's....or Particle now rather..... Photon range of devices. They are cloud based, so once you take 'ownership' of the device, your modules connect to the particle cloud,...

Re: Need assistance from the gurus

Hi Keiran, To eliminate the switch being the problem, why not just use a breadboard wire as the switch? I do most of my fiddling on breadboards, with short pieces of wires. I only put a physical switch in place after my initial testing, and just prior to installing perminently. Good luck, happy trou...

Re: 12V into Vin Problem

Might be a bit late on the reply, but I have only ever powered my Eleven on 5V. And every other Arduino for that matter. For my testbed, I have cut a plugpack lead from a supply that fit into the socket, then wired it into my 5V lab supply (a PC power supply). I have even powered the Eleven from my ...

Re: It's December, time to spice up the Christmas lights!

Hi mohitsachan33,

Without actually looking at any code, it's very difficult to even begin debugging. Are you able to do a simple draw pixel, or clear dmd false command to ensure that it's talking correctly?

Re: dmd stops refreshing after third image

Hey mate,

at a quick glance, currently in the airport departure lounge, it appears you are missing a closing brace ";}" after the three in the scoring section. i hope its this easy to fix :)
