  • Are you connected to the CORRECT codeBit? The name of your CodeBit should light up in the connection panel of the app when you press the button on your codeBit.

  • Did you upload your code to your codeBit?

  • Is your code running on the Bit?
    When code is running, the little red LED on the codeBit will light up. If it’s not lit up, try uploading your code again.

  • Does your circuit need to be refreshed?
    Try disconnecting and reconnecting the p3 power Bit from your circuit. Then, upload your code again. Does this fix the problem?
