Hi, my son and I made the Makerbuino yesterday and at step 12 we got nothing! I double checked all of the connections, components, polarity and that we had the 2N2222 in the correct socket… the chip is also the correct way round.
We decided to carry on and finished the project. Again, nothing on power up except we have the screen backlight, which dims correctly.
Again I went back through and double checked ALL of the components, polarity, connections, chip direction etc… and so far nothing. I then went back and checked again! Help!
Also, one of our 4 pin I2C ports only has 3 pins, so I need to get another one of those.
As per other posts like this I have included Hi Res photos for checking by other (very supportive!) members.
Any ideas? Is it one of the blank chips? (We have no Arduino to reprogram it)
Thanks in advance for any help.
