Serial monitor and led blink does not work!

Hi,

Today I received my particle photon board and I tested it with many simple code but none of them works!

I got Update firmware to 0.6.1 But nothing happens.

I install particle_drivers_6.1.0.51.exe and ParticleCLISetup.exe But …

my OS : windows10
my IDE : Particle Dev

I also use PuTTY for test serial monitor but thats does not show anything.

the code that I use for testing serial monitor is :

void setup()
{
Serial.begin(9600);
Serial.println(“Serial Begin”);

}

void loop()
{
Serial.print(millis());
delay(100);
}

just to make sure you really flashed the code, you can test with adding a blink on D7…

void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(9600);
  Serial.println("Serial Begin");
  pinMode(D7, OUTPUT);
}

void loop()
{
  Serial.print(millis());
  delay(100);
  digitalWrite(D7, !digitalRead(D7));
}

thank you BulldogLowell,

I test your code but nothing happens :frowning:

I Also test “Thinker” and it’s work fine! I can on/off D7 and blue LED on board and external LED does on/off.

But any code about serial and etc does not work :confused:

no blinking on-board LED?

In that case you haven’t actually flashed your firmware…

no :confused:

how can I flash my firmware?

on the Web IDE?

  1. Target the device
  2. create a new App
  3. Past the code I gave you into the editor
  4. Save
  5. Verify
  6. Flash

I tested it with Web IDE and Particle Dev but nothing happens :confused:
Pleazzzzzzzz… tell me why??? :disappointed::tired_face::cry:

Did you:

  • TARGET THE DEVICE in Web Dev by highlighting the little golden star next to the device name?
  • Save your app
  • Press Verify
  • Press Flash
  • See twinkling LED light on Photon whilst it is flashing your app?

Screen shots are encouraged…

when you press Signal do you get shouting rainbows on the on board RGB led?

yeeesssssss… !!! its work now!

I dont know what’s my problem but it’s work with WEB IDE.
Particle Dev still not working. just serial monitor in particle dev works.

OK, you have now conquered Rhode Island, it is onto the rest of the world!
