I purchased a Starter Kit that included a Raspberry Pi Zero W and Blinkt hat.
The Pi Zero W boots fine and installed the Blinkt software using the script from this page:
without any errors but I can’t get the Blinkt hat to light up. The Blinkt is oriented with the rounded corners towards the outside of the Pi. I’m not the most skilled at soldering so I in order to rule out that as the issue I tried this on a Raspberry Pi 3. Same result.
I think I have a bad Blinkt. Any other possible explanations for these problems?
