Inspired by others in this group I thought I’d take my little pi zero Volumio setup up a level and and add a tiny screen using this (volumio-plugins/plugins/miscellanea/mpd_oled at master · supercrab/volumio-plugins · GitHub) and this (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XRBTBTB). Software side went fine, and I made a cable and connected to the pi, but the screen is just blank. Clicked the I2C Device Scan button, and it can’t detect anything.
So I spend a solid hour with a multimeter first making sure the cable I made works then trying to figure out if my questionable soldering skills are the issue. The problem is soldering these tiny pins to the tiny board is just beyond me. Maybe it’s right, maybe it isn’t. I can’t believe they expect kids to do a competent job soldering these. I’m getting voltage across the various pins at the board end of the cable, so maybe it’s ok. But it isn’t worth saving $13+shipping to mess around with it anymore.
So, while I wait for the mail to deliver my new pi WH (with pre-soldered board), does anyone have any troubleshooting tips to see if this is even my problem?
