This is my first time using the Particle Photon, and i have 2 copies with me
I wanted to test out the serial monitor in the Particle Dev and so i applied a basic code as posted at the bottom of the post.
My port is detecting the photon but it is not connecting and there is a flash of blue outline at the “Enter string to send” field upon clicking connect.
I’ve tried with both Photons and i’m unsure if there is something I am not doing right.
This is my code:
Can you connect with another serial terminal like PuTTY?
Does adding some
loop() change anything?
Is the COM port selected in Dev the one your Photon got assigned in DevMgr?
I added but it didn’t change anything
Yep, both assigned to COM5
(I have also tried using other wires just in case)
I am still learning how to use this now, will get back ASAP
@ScruffR @Arunn I had this same issue when I upgraded Photons to firmware 0.6.0 where the serial monitor app would not work in Particle Dev anymore. It would work with TeraTerm Terminal app though.
Here is what I did to get serial monitor working in Particle Dev again
It works with PuTTY! Thank you so much for the help!
So does that mean i wouldn’t be able to use Dev? (Just asking )
@RWB I see! Okay, i shall give it a try Thanks!
Can you explain how PuTTY works? I’m having the same issue as Arunn.
I also installed the latest version of Particle DEV on a new Macbook running Windows 10.
The serial monitor in Dev will not work but TeraTerm serial does work.
Last time I had to use Zadig to change the Particle device driver to get the serial monitor in DEV working again. I think I posted this in an early post in this thread.
Currently I just use TeraTerm for serial monitoring since it provides lots of fexibility.
There is not a lot to explain.
Select Serial interface, set your COM port and hit Open
I cant see anything in serial port!
even when I use PuTTY
I found that after Updating the Photon to firmware 0.6.1 the serial monitor in Particle Dev works now when before I needed to run Putty to see the serial output.
I have the same problem, serial monitor is not working in the Particle Desktop IDE, so I need to use Putty or simply the serial monitor in Arduino (I checked, photon is working with both but I would like to use the on Particel Desktop IDE).
I am using Windows 10, Photon firmware 0.6.3 and Particle Desktop 1.19.0
Did anyone find a solution?
@marcusone, the Particle team is focusing on the new Particle Workbench which is intended to replace Dev.
