I have bought a Raspberry Pi Zero W, a Unicorn pHAT, and a set of Pogo-a-go-go Solderless GPIO pogo pins.
Whatever I try, I can’t get the lights on the Unicorn pHAT to turn on.
I was following this guide:
and originally installed DietPi, but am now using Raspberry Pi OS.
From what I understand, you only need to use 3 of the pogo pins, but I have also tried this configuration, to include all 10 pogo pins in the set: https://pinout.xyz/pinout/unicorn_phat
I even tried putting the pogo pins upside down, since I saw a few posts suggesting it might help.
I cloned the Unified Unicorn HAT and pHAT Examples repository, and have tried running the included detect.py script.
It returns “We couldn’t find a connected EEPROM, so we’ll assume you’re using a Unicorn pHAT.”…when I expect it should be able to detect the Unicorn pHAT properly, so I’m not sure if that’s a good indicator of what the problem could be.
Thanks for any help and suggestions…really not sure what else to try!
