Hello, what length wires did you use? I have been trying to get mine working for days now, I have put to 10k resistors in and my wire lengths are 20mm? it works fine for a 5 - 10 seconds and just shuts my ezb down? I then cycle the power and then works again for a sort time,Can anyone please help?

Bravia, could you confirm you are putting the resisters between SCL & ground and SDA & ground? I thought it was between SCL & 5V ands SDA & 5v. I will swap them around and cross my fingers?
