Pixy 2 Zumo bot Error No Response


#1

Whenever the Pixy cam is plugged into the Arduino(running the chase demo) the red light comes on but it won’t detect or move. I am getting this error. Searching for block... error: no response. I checked the wires and they connected. Anyone have an idea of how to fix this?

Hello,
When you say “the red light comes on”, which light are you referring to. Is it on Zumo or Pixy2?

Without fully understanding your problem. perhaps it’s a power issue. How are you powering your Pixy2? Are you using the cable that’s suggested in the howto guide?

Hmm, Pixy2 lighting up red usually means that it’s detected a red object that you trained it on.

Did you train Pixy using a red object? Does the LED turn off if you cover the lens with your hand or a piece of paper?

If the red LED stays on, you should make sure that Pixy is operating by hooking up your Pixy to a USB cable and running PixyMon.
