T-Deck stuck on RTS pin
Please Help! Lily go T-Deck
I am using arduino ide on a Mac
The T deck is stuck on "Leaving... Hard resetting via
The Tdeck was working fine until I uploaded the sketch.
The keyboard flashed and the screen went black. The Led1 does turn on when connected and sometimes the keyboard lights up for a brief moment when I try to re upload the sketch. the keyboard also flashes for a brief Moment when I press the RST button or turn the power switch from ‘OFF’ to ‘ON’
Note: I am a newb at this as I bought this to learn but as you can see I’m already in a pickle. Only experience I have is messing with the elegoo arduino kit.
The LilyGO products are notorious for requiring that you copy ALL of the files (in the GitHub repository that you downloaded) from the Lib directory and paste them into your Arduino IDE libraries folder, destructively overwriting the previous existing files.
What sketch are you trying to run?
I put serial print messages in mine so that if there is no display, I can see the messages on USB serial monitor.
P.S. It does sound a bit like the controller is crashing, let me know!
The less than helpful README says it is a C3 or an S3. The schematics says S3.
This will make a HUGE difference as the controllers are completely different tech.
@teastain2 turns out I did not copy all the files correctly but I just did thank you! Now that I’m trying to run the “Unit Test” sketch it fails saying “compilation error: esp_vad.h: no such file or directory”
I can’t seem to find that file on hit hub nor the arduino library manager ‘voice activity detection’
@bugsthewonder I found a dead link on their GitHub repository !!!
And nothing else.
I would skip the voice recognition sketch for now.
Move on until you locate a esp_vad.h.
@teastain2 should I delete it from the sketch entirely until I locate that file since that’s what’s preventing me from running the “UNIT TEST” sketch ?
@bugsthewonder Ummm...Often the Unit Test factory test sketch is just that, a test sketch and has no real value to the user. They are often the most difficult to compile and upload successfully, because the tech at LilyGO does not realize that his Arduino IDE setup environment is jam packed with exotics goodies.
Often the boards are tested with PlatfomIO, ESP-IDF or even the test program is already compiled to a binary and directly loaded into the unit!!!
So, I took a look at your program and it would be difficult to edit out the references to VAD.
I depends on what you want from your purchase.
I like to create my own programs, using the examples as examples to figure out how it works.
