2 x 10k resistors got the compass up & going


United Kingdom

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?


@mae My initial problem was same as yours

wire length is approx 40mm one 10k between SCL & ground

one 10k between SDA & ground

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?


YES To Ground that works for me
