    hi there . i just assembled my meggy (with success i might add ) and everything was working . i decided to change the game to frogger or what ever its called . after a few minutes of playing i realized column 1 was not working . everything else was . so where do i go or what do i do to fix the problem?

    A few questions to get started with:

    – By “column 1,” do you mean the left-most column, or the one next to it?
    – Is every LED in this column dark?
    – Is this also the case in other applications?

    yes all of column 1 (left most) was dark . i actually troubleshooted the problem myself . the negative battery lead had pressed down onto a sharp solder joint causing it to ground out . with some persuasion i managed to fix it . now im back to having loads of fun with this great product . thanks

    i noticed something else today . when the pixels/leds are set to white they appear a teal green color . what could be causing this ? it was not always like this , so ?

    Download this revised MeggyJr.h file, and use it to replace the one in your Meggy Jr library:
