Adafruit Stepper Motor HAT I2C Setup
« on: December 18, 2020, 08:15:08 am »
Hey! I am a relatively new RPI3 user that is trying to operate a stepper motor using the Adafruit Stepper Motor HAT, which I have connected to my pi through an external breadboard. I followed the online tutorial for the HAT (including downloading all packages, wiring, etc.) yet i2cdetect doesn't detect the motor. I tried rebooting, reinstalling everything, and removing i2c_bcm2708 to no avail. Is this generally a software or wiring problem, and does anyone have advice on how I can solve this? Thanks in advance!
