I don't have access to that book, so I am not sure what you have tried. It would help if you could tell us how you are trying to show the position. Alternatively, do it again using the following tutorial from the Foundation. Find the Pi tutorial at https://www.raspberrypi.org/learning/getting-starte...

It is a shame that the Amazon page does not give instructions. Try Googling for 8 x 16 LED matrix - Adafruit do a similar one (8 x 8) and have tutorials available. You probably need a few other components too (see Adafruit)

Re: Sd card broken after power suply crash

When you say "not starting" how far does it get?

If we know at which point it stops we can advise what to do to fix it.

Do I assume that you don't want to just start again with a new install (you would lose everything on that card, but might be able to recover files)?
