Puck not powering on

Posted on
  • Hi Guys,

    Was super excited to get my puckjs through the post today, however I followed all the instructions, swapped out the battery in case it was a battery fault and still no power. I've removed the plastic tab from below the battery.

    Anyone else having problems?

  • What happens if you hold down the button on the end of the Puck while putting the battery in? Does anything light up?

    And are you sure the battery is in the right way? the + side should be facing away from the PCB.

  • Ahh sorry ignore me it probably was working in the first place, i just assumed the worst when I didn't see any feedback from the led's when I inserted the battery and my phone didn't pick up the nfc broadcast . All working and connected to the web IDE

    Thanks for the help

  • Odd that you didn't get NFC out of it...

    When you insert the battery there should be a small flicker of the red LED to show life, but it's easy to miss if you don't know what to look for :)
