Good Morning Everyone,
I just bought a Creator hat and am excited to get it working with my raspberry pi 4 but am running into some strange behaviors. I have done all the troubleshooting I know of but to no avail, so I wanted to reach out to the community to see if anyone would be willing to help me solve this mystery.
Raspberry Pi 4B 4gb
5V 3A official power supply
Latest image from raspberry pi foundation
set keyboard US, Timezone LA, etc…
boot from USB samsung fit 256gb
optimize confg file for Pi 4
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
install matrix HAL installation (procedure from package page)
install matrix Lite abstraction
sample rainbow app.py works for the everloop
Now I cannot shutdown with any of the shutdown or poweroff commands, it always reboots the machine instead. Also, now one of the onboard LEDs on the creator hat itself is constantly flashing really fast, one is lit solid, the other is off completely. Not sure what’s going on but that can’t be right, can it? In the images below my “DNA” did not match the DNA in the hardware test page and the em358 module doesn’t seem to get programmed since it says ‘no such file or directory’.
Here is the output running i2cdetect and hardware tests:
Any advice would be appreciated! Thank you for taking the time to help me diagnose this problem.
