Mood Light - USB Issue


#1

I’m having issues with the Pi zero w not detecting the USB input.
Here are the error codes I get upon startup:
[1.473049] usb 1-1: device descriptor read/64, error -71
[1.803047] usb 1-1: device descriptor read/64, error -71
[2.343025] usb 1-1: device descriptor read/64, error -71
[2.673209] usb 1-1: device descriptor read/64, error -71

It seems similar to this post: Pi-zero w unable to enumerate USB device

What USB devices/adaptors are you attempting to use? Do you see any other messages in dmesg, anything in lsusb?


#3

I’m using the adapters from the mood light kit. I’ve tried it with wireless mice, wired mice, and a keyboard/trackpad wireless all-in-one.
I haven’t seen anything else on the screen, and I can’t get it working to interact with it. Where would I see messages from dmesg/lsusb?

I’m going to hazard a guess that the USB adaptor is kaput, it happens occasionally. It could also be a power issue, though, what power supply are you using?


#5

I’m using a 5.25V 2400mA power adapter

Looks fairly legit and has a captive cable- I suspect it’s the adaptor itself, you should drop an email to support@pimoroni.com, link this thread, and ask for a replacement.
