Hello,

I'm new to the BADGEr (and Arduino for that matter) and received a couple of boards. After reviewing the EPD library and the examples, I tried the ALBUM example. I downloaded the sketch and the screen "froze". The LED light blinked (can't remember how many times), but no action on the screen. I then tried a simple implementation of the library (see code below). The display doesn't change (on either board).

anyone have any thoughts on what's going on? Any help would be appreciated.

Having an issue getting Arduino to program the alamode.  See the error below from a screen shot.

Shout out to my buddy Even. Long time no see at RMD

I am having trouble programming the Alamode. I have completed installation and configuration (resolving some issues others have had). Got the board showing up as well as the port.

My problem: I can't send the simple "blink" sketch. I have tried 115200 baud as well as 57600. Both fail with the same error. Here are my verbose output from both attempts.

Binary sketch size: 1,056 bytes (of a 32,256 byte maximum)

Hello just trying to setup my RaspberryPints with Alamode the problem I am having is connecting 6 flow metres to it, it seems only pins 8,9,10,11 work for me I can't get any other to work. Any suggestions?

I'm trying to install the Grbl Controller to run on Alamode connected to the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B wih Raspbian Jessie distro. I followed the tutorial from Wyolum's Alamode User Guide and zapmaker. I am able to upload Blink to Alamode but when I run the following command:

/usr/share/arduino/hardware/tools/avrdude -C /usr/share/arduino/hardware/tools/avrdude.conf -p m328p -b 115200 -c alamode -P /dev/ttyS0 -D -U flash:w:1I8Ey4S -v -v -v -v

I get this error:

Any ideas on how to solve that?

Hello Justin,

Here's a video of the bootup and selecting a few different buttons. I'm using the coin cell that came with the BADGEr to power it.

Hello,

I recently ordered a BADGEr_4.1 and it was just delivered on Friday. It seems to power on properly using the coin cell, but the epaper screen seems "stuck" on the picture of the woman. I can tell the screen is doing some refreshing when I press a button, but not the whole screen.

Do I potentially have a non-functional screen, or is there additional troubleshooting I can do?

Hello, my ClockTHREEjr has been plugged in and working great for years. This morning I noticed that the LED's started flashing and my first thought was that the clock has a loose power connection. I have reset the clock and powered it on and off with no resolution. The clock still keeps the correct time but the LED's are flashing on and off really quickly as if there is a short. Not sure if it is a part or resistor? I did not put my Clock together. It was purchased already assembled from the original kickstarter campaign. Any help is appreciated. If a video or pics are needed to better understand the issue please let me know. Thanks.

Recently purchased the new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. I have used the directions on your site, but keep receiving "unable to execute: ./setup: No such file or directory." I have posted the cat command outputs below. Ideas? 

Steps I followed:
1. wget http://git.io/alamode-setup
2. tar -xvzf alamode-setup.tar.gz
3. cd alamode-setup
4. sudo ./setup

Thanks,
Aaron
