Pi2Go

Tue Apr 18, 2017 6:21 pm

Hi.
I am new to the Raspberry pi and the Pi2Go.
I purchased the kit with the SD card with the demos in for my young man.
Kit was assembled OK and tested with the SD card provided.. All the Demos worked..
Not wanting to Lose the data on the card I Bought a SD card and installed Noobs on it.
I have managed to get the demos onto the new SD card But only the ultrasonic and the motor demo works.
No LED. No Light sensors. No Sensor test. No Servo.
Have tried and tried.. Still no luck. I am missing something simple I know BUT what ??
looks as if anything that used the Pca9685 is not working. my thoughts are that the AddOn for the Pi2Go is missing maybe ??
Not sure what other information you might need to resolve this issue I have.
Regards Antony.

Hello,
did you check that I2C is enables in raspi-config ? In a terminal, enter "sudo raspi-config" and look in 'advanced'.
The LED, Servo are on the PCA9685, and some sensors from the PCF8591, all driven by I2C.
Hope this helps,
Gerhard
