I am trying to use MPU 6050 on raspberry pi. For that I enabled i2c on raspi. But after that whenever I am trying to check the modules on my Python 3 or 2 shell for e.g. when I run help('modules'), I get the following error. The program just runs fine, but I don't understand why I get these errors. Does it have any implication in the future if I connect any other sensor?

Please check your i2c settings!

I have taken this code from a website (http://maker.robotistan.com/raspberry-pi-dersleri-16-mpu6050-ivmeolcerjiroskop-kullanimi/)

 low = bus.read_byte_data(address, adr+1)
 val = (high << 8) + low
 return val

def read_word_2c(adr):
 val = read_word(adr)

  • could you share the code you are using? – linuxgnuru Dec 26 '17 at 18:15
  • Hi. Yes I can share the code. But just for your info, I get this error irrespective of whether the sensor is attached or not or whether I am running any script or not. The sensor runs perfectly when I run the code. But I get these errors when I run help('modules'). I don't know if this has any consequences on my future projects because I will be using the Pi on a project soon that is going to run for 2 months 24x7. – Nischal Dec 27 '17 at 8:47
  • What does sudo i2cdetect -y1 show? – linuxgnuru Dec 27 '17 at 9:26
  • It shows me a matrix and I guess 2 values in the matrix 68 and 77 I guess. Should there just be one value instead of 2? – Nischal Dec 27 '17 at 9:49
