Touching a silhouette

Help! I Don't Hear Any Sounds

This might happen. If you don't hear any sounds coming out of the little speaker when you touch and remove your finger from one of the silhouettes, check a few things:

  • Carefully look underneath the speaker to make sure the speaker nor any paint is touching the ground pin for port labeled "5V FTDI". You might have to remove the speaker, remove any globs of paint that might be jumping up to a "5V FTDI" pin, add more paint to the "LEFT SPEAKER" pads, and replace the speaker.
  • Try connecting some headphones to the headphones jack to see if you get any sound.
  • Wiggle the resistors to make sure that they are truly connected to the conductive paint traces.
