- Check your LED connection. Is the LED plugged in correctly and securely? Watch the first video below to double check your LED connection.
- Make sure your micro:bit is plugged in securely.
- Check the orientation of the micro:bit. If your micro:bit is plugged into the Hummingbird Bit upside down (the micro:bit screen facing downwards), your components will not work.
- Make sure the Hummingbird Bit is still connected with a Bit Display test. A Bit Display test will help you quickly determine if there is a connection between the BlueBird Connector and Snap!.
- Double check your LED code. In most cases, the issue can be solved through the code. To test your LED with accurate code, plug your LED into LED port 1 and copy this Snap! program. Watch the second video below to check your LED code.
- If you have done steps 1-5 and the LED is still not responding, you may be dealing with a broken LED or a broken LED port on your Hummingbird Bit. Try the LED on another port (be sure to update your code to reflect the new port number).
- If the LED reacts, the issue is with the Hummingbird LED port.
- If the LED does not react, switch it out with a new LED. If the new LED reacts, your first LED was broken. Watch the third video below to see reasons why the LED may be broken.
- If needed, new components can be ordered from our store.
