I am new user of raspberry pi. I have two buttons, and some code to run, yet the led will not react to the buttons. It's probably a easy fix, but keep in mind, I am new to robotic and have only started programming 2 years ago, so I might need some dumbed down responses. Any help is appreciated.My wiring.(I know it sucks.) enter image description here

  • Does the following light the LED? sudo pigpiod then pigs w 25 1 – joan Oct 28 '19 at 22:14

    @robotechnology, couple things ... 1 when you post a code listing, do not post a picture of text, post the text itself ... that way your code can be copied and tested ... use the {} button to format the code so that it is readable in the web browser ....... 2 you can delete your own comments so that your post is not cluttered ......... 3 use this to refer to pins pinout.xyz – jsotola Oct 29 '19 at 2:05
  • So the LED is wired correctly. Now check the buttons by pigs r 2 r 3 to read buttons 2 and 3. Try with and without the buttons pressed. Do they change? At a guess I'd say one or both sticks at 1. – joan Oct 29 '19 at 8:30
  • GPIO 2 and 3 both happen to have external pulls to 3V3 fitted. That means they will always read high unless the other end of the switch is connected to ground (0V). – joan Oct 29 '19 at 22:41
  • @joan Can you clarify? Can you use the wring picture thing and tell me what to do and what I did wrong? I Don't understand the terms you are using. Sorry. – Robotechnology Oct 31 '19 at 0:49
