Finished banging head on desk. Now need assistance from more experienced users please!
I have a Pi Zero W and 4 blinkts (purchased through another retailer). I have tried to run some simple python 3 test code to test my blinkts but get very strange results. For instance trying to set LED 0 (only) can result in all LEDs lighting (in various colours)! All of the blinkts are behaving in this way. I briefly considered that maybe my pins were poorly soldered but had discarded that as an idea given that the blinkt seems to light up ok (i.e. obviously getting data in, obviously getting power in). Writing this now though I also wonder whether maybe the data / clock pins may be poorly soldered (e.g. soldered so as connected)?
So now I am left wondering if I have done something stupid with my coding. I have included below the code that produced a rainbow array of colours:
from blinkt import set_pixel, clear, show, set_brightness
set_pixel (0, 0, 0, 255, brightness=0.7)
Should also add that I have installed all the apt and pip packages listed on this forum post: Prerequisites for Blinkt boards on Raspberry Pi 3?
Thoughts and suggestions encouraged and welcomed!
