I have finally started the MAKERbuino kit my friend got me 3 years ago, it’s an original kitckstarter model.
Basically I’m having trouble with the first functionality test.
So far I’ve found the instructions to be wonderfully clear, I haven’t done much soldering before but recently finished a smaller project which had some pretty bad soldering joints but worked okay in the end. With this project however, I think my soldering has been pretty good!
I have attached some photos of my progress so far, I can’t find any issues so I’m guessing the battery has discharged to the extent that the low battery screen won’t even show. I’m going to double check with a multimeter that the battery has discharged, but right now I think I’m going to press on and hope for the best. Can you see anything wrong?
EDIT - So I just checked the battery, and it’s perfectly fine, with enough charge. Evidently something has gone wrong.
EDIT - Also to confirm, I’ve double checked and I’ve definitely put the voltage regulator and the 2n2222 transistor in the correct place. I’m also using the correct 22pF capacitors near the crystal.
EDIT - I have also tried completing Step 13 suggested in this post but still can’t see the settings screen.
