Re: Bluetooth Pairing Mode Probem

You can only get blue tooth working in languages other than micropython.
It's only the initial program and other downloadable images which csn be used to get pairing mode up and running. Simply holding down a and b then pressing reset wont work if you've flashed a program onto the microbit

Re: Driving a 28BYJ-48 Stepper Motor?

3v from 5v can easily be achieved with a voltage divider made up of a 3k resistor and a 2k resistor. Connect the 2 resistors in series between gnd and 5v. The voltage across the 3k resistor will be 3v and similarily 2v across the 2k resistor. Because the current drain of a microbit is a few milli am...

Re: Help with assignment

Bug 1: x=accelerometer.get_values()
Should read x=accelerometer.get_x()

Bug 2:aswell as display.scroll(...) you need to use radio.send("message") also a consumer micro:bit will need message =radio.receive()
