I soldered the GPIO header on to the raspberry pi and installed the requirements using the script given on github but my scroll pHAt will not light up at all, I have tried tyding up the soldering on the GPIO pins on the pi zero and reinstalling the requirements but still no luck, i fixed the fonts.png error but am still getting this one:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/pi/Pimoroni/scrollphat/test-all.py", line 3, in <module> import scrollphat File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/scrollphat.py", line 166, in <module> set_mode() File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/scrollphat.py", line 68, in set_mode bus.write_i2c_block_data(I2C_ADDR, CMD_SET_MODE, [MODE_5X11]) IOError: [Errno 5] Input/output error
Can anyone help please as i am stumped as how to solve this as I haven’t a clue as a relative beginner, Unfortunately I only have a a zero and a B rather than a B+ or 2 so can’t check the scroll pHAT on another Pi
edit having had another look at some photos do I have to solder the female header onto the scroll pHAt board? Sorry if this sounds silly but the product page doesn’t make this clear and to a beginner I have been taking the assembled scroll board to mean i didn’t have to solder onto it?
