I bought 2 of these boards and for weeks I still can’t get this board to respond to a simple spi command.
I thought the first board was bad so i got another one and this new one still doesn’t work.
I order this board along with the second order and this one works at first go. No issues. https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/mp3-player-shield-hookup-guide-v15?_ga=1.219840540.462715524.1431637947
I started researching this and there is some confusion with vlsi solution saying some of these board has wire missing that needs to be pull up to vdd. I’m disappointed with this product because i ask sparkfun to test this board before they send it to me and clearly they didn’t test it.
If there is a known issue with this board then why are they still selling it on the website. Why hasn’t it been removed.
I’m sorry, but we do not offer hand testing of products for customer purchases. It’s simply not an option we can support. Though those boards are hand tested before being released from our production process. Each unit is checked to ensure it plays a proper test sample out of a speaker. To have 2 units over 2 orders that are both not working is strange. Please contact our support team. They’ll be happy to help you trouble shoot. We will likely need to pull both boards back for inspection and testing. If there is a manufacture defect found, we’ll certainly help you with that.
