Adafruit customer support forums also offers technical support for their products.

Go to the MCHobby forums, create your account (account opening are moderated) and ask your question in the appropriate section.

Here some tips that may helps you:

  • Tell us what product it is (product code), what order and when you purchased it.
  • Send a clear, detailed photo of the board (front/back) as well as the connections.
  • For software errors, please send a copy of the error message.Please use the [code] tag when posting code and/or error messages.
  • If you have a problem with an Arduino sketch or MicroPython then copy the source code (or send a link to the code).
    Again, used the [code] tag to distinguish source code from text.
  • If you complete a project following an MCHobby tutorial/wiki, please post the link to the page in question.
  • Consider creating a new topic, additional questions on old topics may go unnoticed. If you see similar threads (or the same problem), do not hesitate to send a link to them.
