Troubleshooting Tips

Power and Connections

Check that your power and data connections are correct and that the power VOUT switch is in the ON position on the gator:bit (v2).

UV Filters

Make sure that if you are using a transparent cover over the sensor that it still passes UV light. More modern clear plastics and glass covers (especially for photo or documents) usually have a special UV coating to prevent pigment deterioration and yellowing of paper.
