New SpeakerPhat no sound


The lights work just fine but when I try to play sound I get this error

Unable to determine hardware version. I see: Hardware : BCM 2835

  • expecting BCM2708 or BCM2709

If this is a genuine Raspberry Pi then please report this to… etc etc

This seems like a wiring pi issue. I used this repo

Is there something I need to do?


I’m going to piggy back on this saying that I am experiencing the same problem with the speakerphat. I should note I’m on rasbian sketch and I was curious of the speakerphat library supported sketch as it is newer than jesse which I was using in the past with a lot of the pi hats.


What version of Raspbian are you (OP) using? Stretch is the recommended distro and I believe what the one line installer is written for.


both of you ran curl -sS | bash


I ended up changing out the speaker and I got some sound. I created a new thread for my specific problems.


I just replied to that new thread. ;)


I’m on jessie and I’m seeing this
