We’re sorry, but your email message to
[“firstname.lastname@example.org”] (titled Re:
[Pimoroni Buccaneers] [Support] SpeakerPhat - unresponsive - is it comaptible with
Touchscreen?) didn’t work.
Sorry, new users can only put one image in a post.
If you can correct the problem, please try again.

Cutting and pasting your address for a reply bounces ! Resent as a reply to…
Speaker pads on PCB and speaker both measure approximately 8 ohms across implying
the speaker should be functional. No sign of life on LEDs either.
All 40 pins of connector check as making contact with no shorts.
By ‘hammer’ connector are you referring to IDC crimp connectors? / headers I
soldered the supplied components using lead free solder and a temp controlled iron.
( hence lumpier appearance than with lead based solder)
Install routine one liner tried on 2 devices after ensuring a vanilla pixel current
installation. … Tried both on rpi touchscreen connected and another,hdmi screen
with inbuilt speakers which confirmed audio present and working from you tube video
without speakerphat installation physically or firmware.
Would have expected the downloaded software to provide a simple functionality test.
However the file content simply seems to list possible sources and settings.
A first impression of the forum is that it is more concerned with awarding badges to
further clutter the screen than simply have product based sections ?? Searching on
speakerphat found 2 or 3 items separated but always some other ‘junk’ threads above
presumably as sticky topics.
Noted that installation script appears to turn audio on and off… But after
completion and reboot audio setting is blank. ( no pcm ‘option’ as previously )
Readme files seem to cause confusion as to whether other routines designed for a vu
meter only board also need to be run. But real useful suggestions of how to
test…espeak presumably reads text files. …
What is the expected effect of having run the install software if the speakerphat is
removed?? Do I need to remove it … I have since done a complete reinstall of the
default software and upgrade in case. Not how I wanted to spend Friday 8-(
There’s no conflict with the touchscreen I’m aware of and, unfortunately, no way
for the Pi to “see” the Speaker pHAT in any meaningful way. i2s audio is
write-only- a software configuration that outputs a digital audio signal on the
right pins. The Pi side of things doesn’t care if there’s a DAC even connected!
My guess is soldering- did you use a hammer header, or solder? Could you post a
photo of your pHAT?
or reply to this email to respond.
