Help new system blue

Hi Mikey, There should be a lot more action when you switch on. The various coloured LEDs should flash, I keep meaning to note down the actual sequence and then most of them will either continue flashing, as in the case of the GPS red LED, because it can't find the satellites or if it does manage to find them then it will go out and the blue LED will start flashing at one second intervals, the red power LED will stay on and most of the others will reach a steady state or go off.
Do you have any test equipment, or know anyone that can do some basic tests, fault finding and trouble shooting at a distance can be so hard.
When you switch it on does anything get hot?
I see that Cutty mentioned that you have some of the solder in LEDs the wrong way around.
I would maybe start by carefully desoldering and removing the LEDs that don't light and seeing if the on board LEDs then light up.
Especially the one next to the red power LED, the first green one as that connects directly to the ST32 chip.
Once you have the LEDs working as they should, we can advance from there.
Don't despair it will work eventually!
Nice Photos BTW.

Brian.
