Led not turning on


#1

I made a routine on python to control the rainbow. The idea was to the leds off and then turn on a green led if something was ok and red if it was wrong, each one of the 5 leds means something and everything was working fine until I made a loop to refresh the leds every minute. Then I realized sometimes some leds wont turn on, Any idea why? Seems like the message to tunr on get lost. I installed the very firts version of flotillo on my Pi, does that has to do anything with it? If so how can I update to the latest version?

Greetings,
Rod

How frequently are you sending updates? The shipped firmware on Flotilla docks is a little sluggish and has been greatly improved since.

I’d highly recommend updating to the latest firmware in our pre-release repository here: https://github.com/pimoroni/flotilla-pre

Then use the latest Python API here: https://github.com/pimoroni/flotilla-python/tree/shipshape

There have been so many, many fixes that I couldn’t possibly speculate on what might be broken in your setup! So onwards and upwards is the best way to go.

I was sending updates every minute but seems that after restarting everything works, anyway I’ll do the firmware update. Thanks!
