General Discussion / Re: MicroSD fails to initialize
« on: July 22, 2022, 12:07:03 PM »
Did you test the card before formatting it with Ubuntu? I'm curious if the formatter you used could have mismanaged the protected memory of the SDHC SD Cards we distribute.

The windows formatter you linked from our site has some warnings that formatters from other operating systems could lower performance, but it doesn't mention that the card would be unusable. It still works with dragging and dropping files, so it's possible the Ubuntu formatter could have formatted the protected memory of the SD Card making the card info unreadable. Can you share what tool you used, or are you able to look into how it reformats SDHC cards?

Could you try writing a .txt file to the SD Card to see if that works? You can use this example, you'll just have to change the Serial object to SerialUSB: - This example uses SD.begin(chipSelect) rather than the card.init(SPI_HALF_SPEED, chipSelect) in the example that's not working so it handles initialization a little differently.

The pixel trail and failure animation are so polished! Simple but incredible. Well done!

Thanks for sharing!

Only the power switch on the bottom left disconnects the power completely. The bottom left button and remote just turn off the screen.

I hope that helps!



Oh no! Sorry this sat for a while. Have you been able to get rid of the glitches? Do the .tsv videos still play just fine?

Let me know!

First thing I would check - is the SD Card fully inserted? It hangs out a bit, but it does need pushed in all the way to the connector. The boards should also be flatly connected with the tan 32-pin connector between the TinyZero and SD Shield.

When you connect the SD card and open it on just your computer, I assume that works just fine? Can you drop files onto it? Make sure to safely eject it when you unplug it - some data corruption could cause issues when trying to read the info from the card.

Let me know if that helps!

Yes, that's right. That's the software we load on the TinyScreen+ boards. I believe it may have one extra setting for changing the bottom left button to a channel down button instead of a power button, so it has one more tiny feature than the stock firmware.


General Discussion / Re: No output from microphone Wireling

I'm glad you were able to sort out the solution (or maybe it sorted itself out?  ;D)

Something to watch out for with the Wireling system that happens rarely - the pins on the inside of the connector on the Wirelings or the Wireling Adapter Shield can have the pins bent when the wires are plugged in at an angle. It's always a pin furthermost right or left, so it could be either the GND or INT pin that isn't connected when this happens.

If this happens - you can straighten out the pin carefully with some thin tweezers and some magnification (or good eyes)

The microphone will detect the ambient noise, so the noisy output makes sense. With the serial plotter open, I recommend making a very loud noise or blowing into the microphone hole.

The Wireling Scanner might not give useful information since the analog state of High or Low isn't always helpful - the microphone could be detected as a logic Low and wouldn't produce different output from the default "Low" state being output from the program.

Let me know if that helps!


Hi there,

It's possible you have some hidden files on your SD Cards causing problems. This happens most often with Mac devices. Check out this forum thread and let  me know if it helps:


Hello Arne,

Unfortunately we cannot easily change the screen size, it would require a new circuit board design and software design to support this.  We are looking at doing some other screens in the near future, but for now the screen you have is the only one we can support.

Glad you were able to get the videos converted!

There might be something going on with the permissions. I recommend running the "Repair Disk Permissions" utility  for the Disk Utility. Instructions at the end of this page:

Otherwise, you may want to try turning the machine off and back on or a few of the other debugging steps mentioned here:,correct%20permissions%20required%20to%20run.

Are you able to download the software from the tutorial on each version? Do you download it from Google Chrome or a different web browser?

I want to verify that the consistent problem is the app not opening after it has been downloaded. We have tested the converter with a few versions of Big Sur and some earlier versions of the MacOS, so it might be best to focus on getting the app to work with one of the versions of Yosemite. Can you try a fresh download from Google Chrome and take some screenshots of the steps you are taking to open the app?

If all else fails with the MacOS versions, we do have a Windows version of the TSV Converter available in that same tutorial.

Let me know how it goes!

We don't have anything official right now, but we hope to have something built into the Code Editor at some point in the future! In the meantime, a lot of discussion around sound effects and game-making happens in the thumby channel of our discord if you'd like to join the conversations:
