Hi All,

I have an issue where one of my boards occasionally can't initialize in the code.  I've checked that the address is correct, and it doesn't always happen but when it does will happen for extended periods of time (days).  Nothing appears to be vissually a problem.

I am running a full stack of four on a pi zero if it makes a difference.  Has anyone encountered this issue?

Thanks!

Hi

Try checking all of the solder joints and connectors on the board to make sure there isn't a dry joint or bad connection.  With a dry solder joint it can work fine most of the time and then stop working when the temperature changes and the metal expands or contracts.
