Speaker PHAT no sound or light


#1

Hello,

I have a phat stack with a drum and piano hat attached. Also a speak phat at the top. I followed these steps. https://opensourcelab.wixsite.com/raspi/pianohat

Also, I literally had it working since I got it. Then today, I ran the script to get it working (see below).

My issue is my speaker phat lights and sound are not working.
I have tried: - reboot the pi

  • unplug and plug in the speaker phat
  • run the script in the terminal for the speaker phat again.

This hasn’t worked yet. Looking for advice. Thanks

#!/usr/bin/env bash

python /home/pi/Pimoroni/pianohat/examples/simple-piano.py > /dev/null 2>&1 &
python /home/pi/Pimoroni/drumhat/examples/drums.py > /dev/null 2>&1 &

running=true

echo “Press control-c to quit!”

trap ctrl_c INT

function ctrl_c() {
killall python
running=false
}

while $running
do
sleep 1
done

Do you see any error output when you run simple-piano or drums?

What happens if, before you run the examples, you run:

sudo systemctl stop pulseaudio

Sweet. That works for the piano now but the drum doesn’t work now. Thoughts?


#4

Drum works. Piano doesn’t. This is my script.

Could you use cat yourscriptname.py to get a readable output of your script and paste it here?

Use three backticks to format code:

```
like so
```

Just thought I would mention that I tested my speaker phat for the first time last night and audio did not work until I ran sudo systemctl stop pulseaudio either.

After that I listened to the bilge tank theme for the rest of the evening.
