I have a Raspberry Pi 4. I am using the Adafruit VL53L0X Time of Flight Distance Sensor. I have connected a T-Cobbler to a breadboard and attached that to my Raspberry Pi. The sensor is wired correctly according to a video my teacher provided. I installed what my teacher told be to install for the sensor correctly. However, when I try to run code. I get a very long error and when I run "sudo i2cdetect -y 1" no number shows up, it's a blank field. I am very new to this and my teacher is not responding. ANY feedback is appreciated, thanks.

  • Where is the error message? Where is a photo of the wiring? Where is the code you are using? Don't make us guess.

The i2cdetect shows that you have not connected the device to the I2C bus.

Check and redo your wiring (I can't see anything obviously wrong but the photo is not detailed enough to see what is connected to what).
