I got this GY-521 module (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/MPU-6050-3-Axis-gyroscope-acce-lerometer-module-3V-5V-compatible-For-Arduino/2035920870.html?spm=2114.13010608.0.0.pRpLS4) and no matter what i try i cannot get my Raspberry Pi zero/3 to recognize it.
I connected the module as follows:
Module -> Pi VCC -> 5v/3.3v (tried both options) GND -> GND SDA -> SDA SCL -> SCL ADD -> GND/3.3v (tried both and without connecting ADD at all)
And from what i understand, i2c is installed and running fine:
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ ls -l /dev/i2c* crw-rw---- 1 root i2c 89, 0 May 13 16:49 /dev/i2c-0 crw-rw---- 1 root i2c 89, 1 May 13 16:49 /dev/i2c-1
but when i try to run
i2cdetect -y 1 all i get is an empty table (table of dashes) instead of seeing my module on address 68 or 69.
As soon as i connect the module, its green led lights up so i guess it gets its power but i cannot understand what i can do to make my pi recognize it :(
