Picade buttons not working

I’m not too knowlagable with any of the programing of this, just wondering if I’ve done somthing dumb. I’ve tried showkey and nothing comes up for any of the buttons or the joystick. Thanks to anyone who can help.

I’ve just had a right morning of trying to make mine work. It could be a number of things. To make mine work I had to reflash the image of retro pie to the microSD, reinstall the picadehat info and then I had the joystick control the wrong way wrong too so only up was working.

Try having a search through the forums, lots of great answers and options to try, start with these:
