    • The board's chip set gets really hot when plugged in

    • The lights on the board do not turn on after being plugged in

    • It doesn't hurt to try another board if your program doesn't run properly

    • Try a different USB cable, or test the one you're using with a different device.

    • You circuit may also be incorrectly wired, try the board all by itself.
